MARCOM's interactive course on Back Safety emphasizes the importance of overall back care, both on and off the job, including exercises and weight control. For many employees, back injuries are something that happens to the other person... not me. Yet four out of five people will have some type of back problem during their lives. Back injuries are frequently caused by common activities experienced both on and off the job... such as lifting, climbing, reaching, etc. Areas covered in the course include how the back works, common types and causes of back injuries, effects of back injuries, injury prevention and safety practices, proper lifting techniques, basic back exercises, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. These courses can be installed and run on any SCORM conformant learning management system (LMS).
