More than 70 percent of all lost-time back injuries are linked to manual material handling injuries. Eight out of every ten people will suffer back pain requiring medical attention at some point in their lives, and billions of dollars are spent each year on low back pain. MEMIC has developed an in-depth program that will provide you with the tools you need to help create a safe manual material handling process in your workplace.

In this hour-long webinar, you’ll be introduced to the three main functions of the spine and the primary functions of the vertebrae, discs and muscles in the back. We’ll also discuss the specific risk factors associated with occupational lower back pain as well as solutions to reduce low back injury in the workplace.
