Safe lifting in the healthcare environment requires more than just muscle; healthcare office and maintenance personnel must also use their heads. Thinking through a lift or carry is critical to preventing back injuries, and this course shows healthcare workers the best practices for safe lifting.

Designed to ensure all personnel make avoiding a back injury more important than lifting or carrying something, this course clearly presents the case for applying best practices when lifting or carrying objects and loads. Upon completing the five lessons in this course, workers fully understand how forcing their backs to do too much or to move the wrong way causes painful, and sometimes permanent back damage.

Present this course so office and maintenance personnel know the right and wrong ways to lift and carry so they immediately begin applying the correct techniques.
