Back Safety for First Responders
Program length: 20:00

First responders are emergency crew members, law enforcement officers, and firefighting personnel. All are at especially high risk for back injuries due to the nature of their work. To help avoid back injuries on the job, Back Safety For First Responders will give your employees an overview of back basics and how the vertebrae, discs and muscles work.

This informative, must-have back safety program will teach your employees the warning signs of back injury and how to protect their back. Back Safety for First Responders specifically notes the most common ways first responders sustain back injuries.

For instance, EMTs commonly injure their backs while moving patients on long spine boards or carrying large medic boxes. Hazmat team members often incur back injuries while ascending ladders carrying heavy loads. Firefighters commonly injure their backs putting on and taking off their self-contained breathing apparatus.

Back Safety For First Responders demonstrates proper lifting and handling of heavy items in order to avoid back injuries and recommends exercises to protect the back from harm.
