Lifting Training That Actually Reduces Injuries!
We’ve trained over 400,000 workers in over 800 companies over the last three decades. The result has been the establishment of a safety culture based on PowerLift® that has resulted in a decrease and near elimination of material handling injuries in many industries across America.
We train a technique that actually works in real life. It uses a wide stance, commonly used by weight lifters as opposed to the traditional ‘squat lift’ that is generally taught in industry.
Unlike most training that addresses all the ancillary safety issues but avoids the actual instruction of ‘how to do it’ we focus on applying our technique to each individual task that workers encounter.
We have developed over 1,200 one-page safety talks that our clients use every week to keep these backsaving techniques top-of-mind. They are customized to individual industries and even include safety talks for the home and garden.
The Mechanics of Workplace Lifting
PowerLift® provides an in-depth understanding of lifting technique. Not only will workers learn how to avoid injury, but what happens leading up to them. By developing an understanding of how their bodies react to lifting strains, new approaches for dealing with them will eventually become a normal component of doing their jobs
