According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report in 2018, over 36% of injuries leading to missed workdays resulted from shoulder and back injuries.
These injuries can be avoided by adopting smart lifting practices, which reduce the risk of back sprains, muscle pulls, wrist, elbow, and spinal injuries caused by lifting heavy objects. Additionally, it is essential to stretch appropriately when handling materials.
In the event of any work-related injuries, including vehicle accidents, drivers must prioritize and take necessary steps to ensure their safety.
At Centerline Drivers, we strongly encourage our drivers to prioritize safety every day and follow these steps.
