A lot of jobs require tasks that involve heavy lifting, working in awkward positions, or using repetitive force that can lead to the development of musculoskeletal injury. Low back pain (LBP) is the most likely type of injury to occur. According to the World Health Organization, LBP is a leading cause of disability worldwide. In the United States, LBP is one of the most common reasons for missed workdays, accounting for more than 264 million lost workdays in 2018 alone. This statistic is huge, especially when you consider that workplace injury is preventable.

As ergonomic service providers, we’re often called in to provide lift training to employees. Many employers think it’s the right approach to take in managing the risks of injury in the workplace. While it’s true that lift training is a useful preventative measure, it’s not the most effective method to prevent low back pain.
