Basic Body Mechanics for Caregivers

 Presented by Dennis Rushing – ALCM, OHST, AIM, CET, CHSP – Senior Risk & Safety Consultant

 Wednesday, November 19, 2014 from 9 AM – 10 AM

 New Mexico Mutual • 3900 Singer Blvd. NE • Albuquerque, NM • (505) 345-7260

 Basic Body Mechanics for Caregivers is a workshop designed for trainers and employees alike.  It takes a different approach to preventing back injuries by helping caregivers understand how their back works.  We will look at joints in the body, how they get injured and then how to keep them from being injured.  Leverage in the body will be studied to help us learn how to use the levers in the body correctly and how that leverage can also cause injury. Finally, we will see how to properly lift to prevent the back from being injured while lifting.  This will be a very informative workshop.
