Course Contents

The aim of this course is to inform delegates about the common causes of back injuries and outline preventative and reactive measures that can be taken to avoid them.
Employers should provide additional training when a new hazard/procedure/condition or piece of equipment is introduced into the workplace or “unscheduled” refresher training is recommended as directed to address inadequacies in knowledge and to address unsafe acts/deviations from procedures.
