Don’t become a back injury statistic. This video is intended to provide current information about ergonomics and safety issues related to patient handling and care tasks. The field of ergonomics is dynamic, and new information is constantly being developed.

This was made possible with the help of a grant from Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA), a division of the Department of Consumer & Business Services, and developed by Oregon Nurses Association, Bay Area Hospital, and The University of Oregon Labor Education and Research Center.

There’s accompanying print material available for free on the Oregon OSHA website. Applied Ergonomics for Nurses and Health Care Workers and Patient Orientation – A Guide for Instructors.
