What can cause a Workplace Injury?

Technique: If your job requires constant manual labor, it is important to make sure that you are lifting correctly. Avoid injury by lifting with your legs instead of relying on your back.
Posture: By increasing your back’s curves beyond what is normal, you will start to slouch which leads to muscle fatigue.
Stress: When your only priority is finishing the project instead of doing it correctly, it is likely that you will forget to take precautions that are put in place to ensure your safety.
