Back Safety Classes Are A Hit!

Industrial Health's Back Safety Classes have been very well received.  Our Physical Therapist, Curt Jevens, has been a busy guy going to area employers and helping educate employees on back safety including proper lifting techniques, neutral position, body mechanics, stretching as well as how to sit properly. 

Curt works with the employer to customize the program to make sure it covers what movements occur at that specific location.  He is able to target exactly what is done on the job and can take a look at a particular work area if needed. 

Feedback from employers who have had Curt out has been very positive and supportive.  They all have shared how valuable they thought the information has been and how well Curt does delivering the information in a way that employees can relate to.

Industrial Health provides CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillator), First Aid, Emergency Oxygen Administration and bloodborne pathogen training for interested employers.  We survey each participant after the training to see what they thought.  The following are remarks from a recent on-site training:

  • "Best interactive CPR class that I have attended."

  • "4th one of these classes I have been thru and this was the best one."

  • "Made me feel comfortable in giving CPR."

  • "Good instructor and interesting class.  Kept our attention."

Many organizations do on-site training, Industrial Health does it best. Contact Mark Peltier at 810-982-8016 for more information or to schedule your next training session.  Back to Top
