We Provide Safe Lifting Training for ALL Industries

PowerLift® Is Effective Because Workers Use the Techniques

Traditional “back safety” programs often fail not because the techniques are inherently bad but because they are impractical. Workers, especially older or heavier workers, can’t employ the standard techniques. PowerLift is different in that the lifting style is usable by workers of all ages and physical conditions. We offer tried and proven material handling training for your entire employee population. Our unique training styles are built to seamlessly integrate into your company’s safety culture or help build you a new one. 

Training that Goes Beyond The Classroom on to the Job Site

PowerLift training isn’t the “one and done” classroom training that we’ve all sat through and almost never use.  Job site training follows the classroom training to work with your people to solve real-life lifting challenges. We also  give your company access to the full PowerLift Library for continued training at your facilities. These include over 1,200 Safety Talks for safety briefings, training materials, Safety Talk videos, and much more. Learn how safe material handling training can help your business today.

180 people went through the program … not one negative response. I couldn’t believe all the people coming up to me with positive things to say

The most impressive number associated with injuries has come from an $80,000 refund from our worker’s comp group in the form of a really easy to receive check.

It’s easy to learn … not a complicated program. You can demonstrate in the training the difference between proper lifting and improper lifting … you can actually feel it.

People can’t believe the difference it makes using the PowerLift® [lifting] technique versus what they were using before. It just feels a lot easier

PowerLift White Paper

Take A Look At the New PowerLift White Paper

Read our white paper ‘Why Safe Lifting Programs Fail‘ to learn these 5 proven strategies for sustainable injury reduction.



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.
