Neenah, WI - Safety managers looking for a powerful approach to back safety training can now find one that's award-winning, too.

The Back Safety: Keep Your Back In Action video-based training program from J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.® was recently honored with a 2014 Bronze Telly Award in the category of Training (for Corporate Use) by the Telly Awards and the Silver Telly Council.

The program was developed in 2014 in response to the over 200,000 back injuries that are reported every year, which account for one in five injuries in the workplace.

“What separates Back Safety from others on the topic is that it goes beyond basic back safety awareness and lifting,” said Chris Bauer, Senior Product Development Specialist at J. J. Keller. “It covers the structure of the back along with causes of back pain and injuries, and provides real-world scenarios that demonstrate routine tasks common in most industries that can lead to back injury if done incorrectly.”

The program goes on to explain important preventative measures and proper techniques employees can incorporate when performing everyday motions such as lifting, pushing, climbing, sitting, standing, twisting, and reaching.

“The primary theme of Back Safety is that preventing back injuries is within employees’ control, and we support it with guidance from a medical professional, corporate ergonomics specialist, and a conditioning expert specializing in back health,” added Bauer.

Since 1999, J. J. Keller has received 22 Telly Awards for excellence in video-based training. The awards annually recognize the finest film and video productions; web commercials; and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs. This international competition receives over 13,000 entries each year, with only the best programs being recognized as Silver or Bronze Winners — the Telly Awards’ highest honors.

J. J. Keller’s Back Safety: Keep Your Back In Action is available in multiple formats, including DVD, Pay Per View, and Interactive Online. This flexibility allows trainers to choose the delivery method that’s most convenient for their operation and the learning style that’s most effective for their employees.  The program is available by calling 800-327-6868 and referencing Promo Code 107812 or by visiting jjkeller.com/107812 or call 800-327-6868.
