Back Injury Prevention (Waste Management)
According to the National Safety Council and medical research, 70% of back problems result from degeneration of spinal discs; 20% of backaches are attributed to inflammation; 10% are due to actual back injuries and other miscellaneous causes. Practicing safe lifting at home and work and having the right attitude about safety can be effective in preventing back injuries. This program explains how the back works. We discuss how strains and muscles work so back injuries can be prevented.
Topics included in this safety video are: mechanics of the back, discs, spinal cord, range of spinal movement, lumbar flexion or dynamic posture, muscle strains, and 10-to-1 ratio.
