Strategies to Prevent Back Injuries in the Workplace

Preventing back injuries in the workplace involves both individual and organizational efforts. Educating employees on proper lifting techniques and workplace ergonomics is essential. Employers should ensure a safe working environment by providing ergonomic workstations and equipment.
