Back safety tips
Every single back injury suffered by a Nova Scotian worker is avoidable. You can keep yourself, and your friends at work, safe by using these safety tips:
  • Push, don't pull, whenever possible.
  • Try to avoid sudden quick movements.
  • Work with your upper body as close to upright as possible.
  • Keep objects that you are lifting or carrying close to your body.
  • Make sure you have enough room around you to lift safely. 
  • Get help before you try to lift a heavy load. Use a dolly or a forklift if you can.
  • Don't overdo it. If you have to strain to carry the load, it's too heavy.
