  • Frequency of the number of accidents resulting in back injuries
  • Anatomy
  • Types of back problems (anatomic causes and movements)
  • Prevention of back problems (posture, avoiding strain, physical conditioning. Examples)
  • Motivation


Practical exercises for implementing the elements handled in the theory part of the course. Implementing a LMRA (Last-Minute Risk Assessment) within this specific context.

  • ‘Manual handling’ exercises: safe handling of loads
  • Recognising harmful and correct postures
  • Knowing and applying various techniques for minimising the risk of back injuries
