As with engineering improvements, many administrative changes can reduce back injuries. The following administrative steps are recommended: Training for all employees. Increase awareness with posters and meetings. Notify suppliers of reduced weight limit. Job rotation for heavy lifting jobs. Proper maintenance and housekeeping. Use back belts when necessary. Some recommendations should enable employers to begin implementing changes immediately. Other suggestions will require time and money but are worth the investment.
