How to minimise back injuries caused by heavy lifting

What causes back injuries?

Did you know that your back muscles aren’t designed for lifting heavy weights which is why many people suffer from back injuries?
These injuries can cause short term pain to a long-term injury which means a potential recovery period of weeks to months.
Factors such as loading and unloading heavy items and working on uneven surfaces, put you at risk of developing muscular related issues such as lower back pain.
Many jobs fall into the categories of performing these tasks and that’s why the following steps will help you to minimise the impact of heavy lifting:

3 steps you can take to minimise the incidence of back injuries

  • Train yourself on how to handle loads safely
  • Ensure you take regular breaks to reduce physical fatigue
  • Use powered machines that help to reduce or eliminate the risk

  • Makinex Construction Products are passionate about inventing and manufacturing products that provide professional contractors and tradespeople with a safer and more efficient way to get their job done.
    The Award winning Makinex Powered Hand Truck (PHT) is no exception with the ability to help users lift up to 140kg independently.

    To ensure you’re able to lift a huge variety of shapes and sizes, the PHT is available with several attachments.

    What Makinex Customers say about the PHT

    This is what James Allessi, Branch Manager off Kennards Woollara had to say about the Makinex Powered Hand Truck;

    “We use the PHT regularly around the branch lifting brick saws, Generators and other small equipment. I used to wake up sore in the mornings with back pain from all the lifting of equipment, and I don’t seem to have that problem anymore now that I use the PHT”.
