Title: Don’t Be A Dummy About Back Safety


In this video from our "Don't Be A Dummy" Series, employees (and "dummies") return to work for Back Safety Awareness Day. Our dummies suffer several painful back injuries despite the company's effort to make employees aware of the actions they can take to prevent them. Embedded in these injuries is a message to viewers: back injuries don't happen to dummies; they happen to real people who ignore basic back safety practices. Topics include components of the spine, causes of back injuries, back strains and sprains, and the importance of exercise and posture in maintaining a healthy back.
