Course description

A 2hr course focusing on the anatomy and physiology of the back and the causes of a compromised posture

Training objectives

The aim of the course is to enable you to recognise when your staff are working in a compromised posture and advise ways of changing how they work to reduce the risk of experiencing back pain.

Delegates will:
• Discuss their own experiences of back pain and what may have caused it
• Referring to an observation tool, identify any tasks that may aggravate any pain their staff may experience
• Explore strategies to reduce the risk of staff compromising their posture and exacerbating any back pain they may be vulnerable to.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the session delegates will have:
• Examined the anatomy and physiology of the spine
• Discussed different types of back pain
• Discussed causes of back pain
• Used an observation tool to identify when work activities are hazardous
