Back Safety (including Lifting)
National Summary

This topic covers workplace hazards that result in back injuries to workers, as well as safe lifting practices and methods of preventing these injuries.

There is no specific OSHA regulation for back safety; however, hazards that can cause back injuries to workers are covered under the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. To reduce the occurrence of back injuries, OSHA recommends the use of engineering controls such as mechanical assists and proper workstation design to eliminate the hazard, in addition to training employees on safe lifting techniques.
