Avoid injuring your back at the office #5515

• If you sit for long periods, make sure your chair supports your back. If the chair doesn’t support your lower back’s curve, place a rolled towel or small pillow behind your lower back. Also, remove any bulky objects from your back pockets. They can disrupt the balance in your lower back
• On average, take a 30-second timeout to stretch or move for every 15 minutes you spend sitting the same place.
• Pay attention to office space ergonomics. – If you work at a computer, make sure that your monitor and chairs are positioned properly.
• Use good form when lifting, even if the object is relatively light. Keep the object close to your body and let your legs do the work. If the load is too heavy to lift on your own, get some help.
• Remove anything from your workspace that might cause you or someone else to trip and fall.

Driver safety #5503

• Adjusting outside and inside rearview mirrors can greatly reduce blind spots. Set the interior mirror so it shows you as much of the rear window as possible. Next, lean your head against the left window and adjust the left side-view mirror so you can just see the rear side of your car. Position you head in the middle of the car, above the center console, and adjust the right-side mirror so you can just see the rear side.
• Adjust the center of the headrest so that the back of your head not your neck, would connect with it in an emergency.
• Always buckle up, positioning the lower part of the seat belt across you hips, not your abdomen.

ATM safety #411

When on a college campus, be sure to use the well lit ATM that is in a populated location during the day. Be aware of your environment and look around you frequently. When using older machines use your body to block the screen, when entering your code. Never use ATMs at the back of buildings and don’t count your money at the machine or idly count in your car parked near the ATM.
