    Back injuries are major safety hazards at the workplace. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year. 75% of these occurred while the employee was lifting. Using proper lifting techniques can help prevent downtime due to avoidable back injuries. Though, no approach will completely eliminate back injuries, a substantial portion can be prevented by incorporating effective administrative controls and engineering controls. Training employees to utilize lifting techniques that place minimum stress on the lower back can go a long way in reducing the back injury incidents.
