Back injuries are extremely common in almost every industry and at home. Anyone who has to perform manual labour is at risk for back injury. Lower back injuries are particularly common. While they may be hard to completely eliminate, many back injuries can be avoided with a little caution and a few preventative steps.
WorkSafe Saskatchewan and the Chiropractors’ Association of Saskatchewan are working together to increase awareness of back safety and injury prevention. Here are some education and awareness materials for workers and the public about back safety and back injury prevention:
