How can you protect yourself from a career-ending back or lifting injury? If you’re a manager what can you do to prevent millions of dollars in workman’s comp claims? We’ll talk about that on this week’s very special episode of the MedicCast.

MedicCast Episode 452

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. In this week’s special episode, I revisit a special segment on back and lifting injuries from last year’s EMS World Expo in Nashville, Tennessee. We were in the Physio-Control podcast studio talking with Rob Lawrence from the Richmond Ambulance Authority and his organization’s risk management and safety officer Bryan McRay to talk about how they use tools like those from Mangar to help them protect both the providers and the patients when lifting and moving them. Also joining us is EMS fitness expert Bryan Fass, the Fit Responder who trains and educates agencies nationwide about safe lifting and fitness among EMS crews. We’ll get into that special review segment in just a sec.
