Dear Valued Customer,
In this issue of the “——————–“ we focus on pushing or pulling heavy objects.
Lifting heavy items is one of the leading causes of injury in the workplace. In fact, in a recent year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that over 36 percent of injuries involving missed workdays were the result of shoulder and back injuries. Overexertion and cumulative trauma were the biggest factors in these injuries.
Read on to understand the potential hazards and possible solutions. Awkward postures to avoid when lifting. What to do if you are lifting a lot for long periods at a time, and more. Together we can help make lifting safer.
We appreciate your continued business and look forward to serving you.
