  • $17.00

Sneak Peek
Each year, thousands of people suffer injuries at work. There are many types of work injuries, including back injuries, carpel tunnel syndrome, eye injuries, bumps, bruises, and burns. Here’s how to avoid them.

  • Adjust your work chair to avoid back strain. With hips against the back of the chair, adjust the seat height until your feet are flat on the floor. Distribute your weight over your buttocks. Adjust the backrest’s height to meet the curve of your back. 
  • Never use a chair or desk as a ladder. If you use a ladder, never stand on the top step. Call maintenance to handle problems that require climbing. . . .

Preventing back injury; reminders and awareness; education of carpel tunnel syndrome; thwarting eye-injuries; avoiding burns and electrocution.

How to Use
