The most common cause of occupational fatigue and low back pain is manual handling.
Musculoskeletal disorders (read back pain) continue to be a leading cause of lost-time injuries in the workforce. Employers should train workers on proper lifting techniques, helping even younger employees to understand the importance of preventing injuries and the cumulative damage that poor lifting techniques can cause. Make sure your employees have the resources to avoid one of the most common lost-time injuries. We’ve created this free infographic with valuable information on manual handling injury prevention for you and your organization.
