Our research shows that 20% of work-related injuries are back injuries. Even more telling, back injuries account for more than 33% of all dollars spent on work-related injuries. That makes it pretty plain that avoiding back injuries means big savings in both dollars and suffering.
At MEMIC, we offer strategies to avoid back injuries by attacking them at their root cause. Nearly 70% of low back pain is caused by what is known as "manual material handling," i.e., the lifting, pushing, pulling, carrying or even lowering work that is performed in almost every workplace.
