BACKCARE AWARENESS WEEK 2010

Posted Apr 20 2010 4:22am

BackCare Awareness Week 2010
           
11th - 15th October

Our theme this year is

  “Beyond the Box"

Most people encounter things in boxes in the course of a week and, whilst many know how to pick up a heavy box safely using a 'straight back and bending the knees', most of us don't think twice when lifting or moving everyday items such as shopping bags, a pile of washing, a tray of food, a piece of furniture, a computer or even the toy box! Then there are those garden chores that involve bending and lifting. It isn’t just lifting a heavy box that we have to think about when caring for our back.
 
At BackCare we are producing three information packs to highlight some of the dangers and give advice on how to avoid back injuries in the three main areas of day to day living.
 
At Home, at Work and at Play
I will email you in the next few weeks to let you know the price of the packs and how place your order.  Watch this space........
