Training for Contractors & Workers

The Best Built Plans Comprehensive Training Program  is designed to educate contractors and workers on the risks associated with manually lifting and moving materials and how to prevent strain, sprain and other soft tissue injuries.

Contractor Training Program – designed for contractors to view the entire 45-minute presentation on the causes of soft tissue injuries and guidance on addressing them, or to select and view shorter sections on topics of interest. It can be used by the contractor on their own or as part of a formal training session or meeting.

Worker Training Program – intended to educate workers on the causes of soft tissue injuries and ways to prevent them, including safe lifting practices and proper body mechanics. It is designed to be used by an instructor and includes both classroom and hands-on components, as well as materials to use with each. The Instructor Guide includes detailed instructions on how to conduct each module and the handouts to use. The modules can be delivered at one time or at different times.

Interactive Training & Coaching Resources – interactive training exercises with narration to educate workers on the need to plan lifts and the types of equipment, work practices, and lifting techniques that can reduce the risk for injury, and coaching exercises that introduce and test a user’s knowledge of warm-up activities and lifting fundamentals. These resources can be used by trainers or by workers on their own.
