                      Prevent Lifting Injuries
                        Not Work Excuses
To have another employee perform a position’s essential function, and
to a certain extent perform the job for the employee, is not a
reasonable accommodation, a reasonable accommodation is
“a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the
way things are usually done that enables a qualified individual with a
disability to enjoy an equal employment opportunity … examples of
reasonable accommodations include making existing facilities
accessible; job restructuring; part-time or modified work schedules;
acquiring or modifying equipment; changing tests, training materials, or
policies; providing qualified readers or interpreters; and reassignment
to a vacant position.”
BOTTOM LINE
• EDUCATION AND POLICY
• NEVE LIFT MORE THAN YOU ARE CAPABLE
• ALWAYS LIFT WITH YOUR LEGS NOT YOUR BACK
• IF IN DOUBT GET HELP IN LIFTING ANY ITEM
