Healthcare workers do a lot of heavy lifting. To protect themselves from serious back injuries, it’s important for medical professionals to use proper lifting techniques when handling patients and materials. This poster illustrates the key points to keeping their backs safe. It features a cartoon illustration of a healthcare worker holding a box and demonstrating the safe lifting points.
The text on the poster reads:
“Keys to safe lifting: Keep your back straight; Keep objects close to body and keep a good grip; Bend at your knees; Keep your feet comfortably apart. Other keys to back safety: Make smaller loads; get help if load is too large; always turn your feet, never twist your back.”
This full color, laminated, safety poster is 18″ x 24″ with English or Spanish options available.
