In 1991, 60 percent of all workplace injures were the result of Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTD)-the consequence of doing the same task repetitively...while using correct lifting technique.These injuries are growing at speed of five to ten percent a year costing employers at least $38 billion annually.
Lifting these light loads-over and over- caused the majority of CTD back injuries.The strength or size of your worker is unimportant to the risk.What is important is the number of times he or she lifts a day, a week or a month.
It's time to stop the cycle. It's time to end the injuries.
