Don’t be a Statistic: Prevent Back Pain on the Job

WPS Logo

They have hard heads to protect your head. Steel toe boots to protect your toes. And safety goggles to protect your eyes. But none of those things protect you from the injury you are most likely to suffer at work: Back problems. Avoiding back problems is the most important health-related priority you can have when working in the trades.

If you’ve ever come home from work and felt an aching back, there are some things you can do in the future to help with avoiding back problems. The Center for Construction Research and Training says the construction industries have the highest rate of back injuries other than the transportation industry. One in every four of all construction industry injuries every year are back injuries, causing 1 in every 100 construction workers to miss work.

These injuries, on average, cause the worker to lose seven days of work, but often, it’s much more than that, sometimes more than a month. Most back problems are caused by low-back injuries, and repeated injuries can cause permanent damage and even disability. The most common back injuries are strains and sprains caused by lifting, pulling, carrying, and pushing things at work. If you work with heavy loads, you are obviously more likely to suffer a back injury. But your chances of getting injured are also elevated if you spend a lot of time working bent over, or twisting and turning while carrying heavy objects — activities which are common in many of the trades and other blue-collar work, not just construction.

Lighter, More Comfortable Composite Toe Footwear

Composite Toe Boots

A long time ago, some person thought it would be nice if it stopped hurting when stuff hit your toes. That person was a genius because that person invented steel toe boots. All of the sudden, it became a lot less dangerous to do a lot more work. No more stubbed toes, no more worries about stuff falling on them, a whole lot of piece of mind. And back then, this protection came with one sacrifice to make: They were a little heavier.

That hunk of metal in your shoe offered great protection, but it did make for a boot that was a little clunkier and heavier. But that sacrifice isn’t necessary any longer. Welcome to the 21st century. Now, composite toe boots and shoes are available, offering the same great protection, without the added bulk. The traditional steel toe cap has been replaced by composite material such as high-tech plastics like Kevlar, which is five times stronger than steel and much, much lighter. Continue Reading…
