Our backs can easily get injured when lifting something on the job site. It is important to learn how to support the back with proper lifting techniques.

This training video explains parts of the back and its purpose in movement. Preparing for a lift includes assessing your back, footwear, and capability of being able to lift the object. This course shows construction workers how to prepare for a lift, conduct a below the waist lift, and how to plan a carry. For example, the course explains how the lower back has a 10:1 lifting ratio and what that means to someone’s back as they bend over, based on their weight, and the weight of the object.

Use this course to help your team learn to safely lift things around the job site.
