Back injuries can ruin lives.
Many workplace injuries, especially back injuries, are preventable. They are often the result of unsafe lifting techniques or lifting loads by hand that are just too heavy for the human back. Not only do back injuries cause pain and misery and end careers prematurely, but as many employers discover, the financial costs can be astronomical. The cost of a single back injury settlement could put a dozen Ezyloaders on trucks, loading bays and workshop floors. The injury need not occur in the first place. Prevention makes sound economic sense.
