Additional Information

OSHA has a Technical Manual where you can learn more about Back Disorders and Injuries online. Sections help users to learn about: Factors that contribute to back disorders; Signs and symptoms of back safety issues; Reporting and investigation guidelines; and Prevention and control. Per OSHA, workers should be provided job specific back safety training, including back injury hazards, safe work practices, and controls in the workplace. Training should include ergonomic principles, back hazards and injury recognition, reporting procedures for hazardous conditions, and the back injury reporting procedure.


Additional Training

Please note that this course provides valuable back safety training and back injury prevention training which applies to a general population of employees. This course is not meant to replace company-specific Back Safety training provided by your employer on procedures for your particular work environment. You must be trained by your employer on the hazards, equipment, engineering and administrative controls, safe work practices and emergency plans specific to your role and workplace.

In ALL situations, employers are required to ensure their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
