SpineCare’s Back Injury Prevention Education Program, run in Train the Trainer format, is designed to help business owners develop and implement an ongoing safety program within their company. Lead staff are trained to identify and assist management in modifying work environment situations and physical behaviors of staff-level employees to prevent injuries in the workplace. The emphasis is placed on personal responsibility and working safely together as a team.
Through the use of classroom lecture and slides, demonstration, handouts and brainstorming, the trainer will be provided with information for immediate practical application within the workplace. Learning will be enhanced with repetition of information and “homework” to be completed weekly.
Key components for implementing the program include educating co-workers and developing a system to monitor the safety of co-workers during job tasks. Emphasis is placed on planning and implementation of an ongoing safety program, not just a one-time in-service. Emphasis is also placed on taking personal responsibility for your safety as well as working together as a team and watching out for the safety of one another.
