Safety Brief – Lifting in a Safe Manner

Attached is a new “Safety Brief” from OSU Environmental Health and Safety.  This safety brief features lifting in a safe manner.  According to Ohio BWC,  approximately 25 percent of Ohio work-related injuries are from overexertion when lifting.  From our offices to our research farms, employees can prevent lifting injuries by following a few simple guidelines. Please take a few minutes to review the material, print it out to display in your work area, or pass it on to others in your department.
