Back and Manual Materials Handling Injury Prevention

Strains due to lifting are one of the most frequent causes of injury for Pinnacol policyholders. Sixty percent of these claims involve the lower back and shoulder. Traditional approaches to controlling back injuries, such as proper lifting training and stretching programs, have not been successful in reducing injuries. Participants will learn the most effective strategies for reducing the frequency and severity of back injury claims. Topics will include:

  • The most high-risk job tasks for back and shoulder injuries
  • Ergonomic design principles for manual material handling
  • An evaluation of the seven common lifting techniques
  • An assessment tool to evaluate the recommended weight limits for lifting tasks

The Speaker will be Kevin Simonton, Ergonomics Specialist.

Slip, Trip and Fall Prevention

Approximately 300,000 U.S. employees are disabled each year as a result of slip, trip and fall accidents. In Colorado, slips, trips and falls are almost always the No. 1 cause of employee injuries. These claims can be costly for employers, as well as painful and debilitating for the injured worker. What do we know about most of these injuries? They don’t have to happen.

Topics include:

  • Reviewing the true costs of slips, trips and falls in the workplace
  • Identifying common slip, trip and fall hazards
  • Slip, trip and fall prevention techniques that keep your employees safe
