The mining industry is plagued by back injuries. And the rates of injury, in conjunction with reports of recurrent pain amongst workers and employees, indicates that simply focusing on proper lifting techniques (which has been oversold as a true solution) does not attack the core cause of these pervasive injuries. In this webinar, MineFit's head coach, Monica Pampell, will discuss the "Big Three Back" injuries and how they can be eliminated by teaching miners to focus their attention on proper posture and back fitness. By utilizing just a few important techniques and intervention strategies, the "Big 3 Back" focus can serve as the bedrock for a broad reduction in rates of injury.
