RICHMOND, B.C. — The Trucking Safety Council of B.C. (TSCBC) has developed a moving and lifting safety campaign, which was kicked off with the launch of a video on ‘Preparing for Work.’

The video provides tips on safe work practices for drivers who will be required to handle goods after periods of driving. The video is the first in a six-part series and can be watched here.

The videos have been created in partnership with the Association of Canadian Ergonomists and the project is supported by the B.C. Chiropractic Association. The series addresses some of the most common risks associated with back and neck injuries, the organizations claim.

Musculoskeletal injuries account for about one-third of all medical office visits and hundreds of thousands of dollars in provincial compensation claims and lost productivity annually, officials say.
