Safety Up! On Lifting Techniques

Share Us On:



Working on a farm isn’t child’s play, as people can get seriously injured or even die in severe cases. Think of all the pulling, hoisting, shoveling, bending, loading and lifting that are involved on a daily basis on a farm. The strain and stress that manual labour can place on the human body should not be underestimated, as many labourers complain of debilitating back problems, muscles sprains and torn ligaments that require months—if not years—of painful rehabilitation and surgeries.

More and more people are taking on jobs that require either a long haul on the road or heavy lifting. For this reason, interest in truck financing has increased over the last few years. The possible salary that a truck driver can earn has also significantly increased the interest in truck financing, as some truck drivers can make as much as $200,000 a year. In fact, some companies are in such dire need of truck drivers that they are providing ten thousand dollar incentives to entice people to relocate in order to drive their trucks. Evidently, the importance of trucks and trucking in many industries should not be underestimated.   However, the aforementioned incentives will drastically diminish if the employee doesn’t have his own truck.
