Off the floor!

Assessing people's ability to recognize lifting risk factors for low back pain and the impact of a simple educational message

A collaboration project between WSPS, Centre for Research Expertise in Musculoskeletal Disorders (CREMSD), and the Ontario prevention systems. Through the use of task-specific videos the research group is currently assessing how stakeholders are perceiving the risk of lifting various objects off the floor. The first stage of this project is complete and a poster with a simple message to help prevent lower back injuries will be available here soon.
