Back injuries stemming from improper lifting are all too common in the workplace, and not only in industrial settings. File boxes, office machinery and desks are often moved during relocations and rearranging an office.
This video provides instructions on how to minimize injuries when lifting objects. Proper alignment of the back, legs and feet can position the lifter to work with their body’s design rather than against it. The use of lifting devices is also examined, as well as how to coordinate with others when lifting objects requiring more than one person.
The video also demonstrates different approaches for lifting extra large or awkward items.
