We have designed our online training for back injury prevention to meet the needs of all general industry workers. This includes employees who are at risk of work-related back injury, as well as their managers who are responsible for upholding workplace health and safety. The course may prove particularly valuable for workers with jobs that require them to engage in difficult physical tasks, such as lifting heavy objects, kneeling, twisting, bending or repeating the same motions with little variation.

Consider taking this course before beginning a job that puts you at risk of back injury. When you know how to work safely from day one, you can prevent injuries and reduce the job’s impact on your body.

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not specifically require employers to provide back injury prevention training. However, under the Occupational Safety and Health Act’s General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1), employers do have an obligation to keep the workplace free from serious recognized hazards, including ergonomic hazards that could lead to a back injury.

In addition to altering workflow and minimizing weight to be lifted, general industry businesses can reduce ergonomic hazards and remain in compliance with the General Duty Clause by training all workers on proper lifting technique and back injury prevention.
