Lifting Safety: Tips to Prevent Back Injuries
Did you know that around 31 MILLION AMERICANS experience low-back pain at any given time. According to the American Chiropractic Association, low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
What Causes Back Pain?
The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain. While sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements—for example, picking up a pencil from the floor— can have painful results. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain. Back pain can also directly result from disease of the internal organs, such as kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss.

Have you checked the object before you try to lift it?
- Test every load before you lift by pushing the object lightly with your hands or feet to see how easily it moves. This tells you about how heavy it is.
- Remember, a small size does not always mean a light load.
Is the load you want to lift packed correctly?
- Make sure the weight is balanced and packed so it won’t move around.
- Loose pieces inside a box can cause accidents if the box becomes unbalanced.
Is it easy to grip this load?
- Be sure you have a tight grip on the object before you lift it.
- Handles applied to the object may help you lift it safely.
Is it easy to reach this load?
- To avoid hurting your back, use a ladder when you’re lifting something over your head.
- Get as close as you can to the load. Slide the load towards you if you can.
- Don’t arch your back–avoid reaching out for an object.
- Do the work with your legs and your arms–not your back.
What’s the best way to pick up an object?
- Use slow and smooth movements. Hurried, jerky movements can strain the muscles in your back.
- Keep your body facing the object while you lift it. Twisting while lifting can hurt your back.
- Keep the load close to your body. Having to reach out to lift and carry an object may hurt your back.
- “Lifting with your legs” should be done only when you can straddle the load. To lift with your legs, bend your knees, not your back, to pick up the load. Keep your back straight.
- Try to carry the load in the space between your shoulder and your waist. This puts less strain on your back muscles.
