Lifting at Work
Jeff and Matt do the same job. They load heavy boxes onto a truck. “My back hurts,” complains Jeff. “How is your back, Matt?”
“My back feels good. I wear a lifter’s belt,” says Matt.
“I wear one, too, but my back still hurts. What am I doing wrong?” asks Jeff.
Matt says, “I learned to lift the right way at my old job. I bend my knees and lift with them. I do not bend over and lift with my back. If a box is too heavy for me, I ask for help.”
“Oh, that is what is different. I lift with my back. I need to start lifting with my knees,” says Jeff.
