The goal of PowerLift® is to eliminate strain/sprain injuries sustained by workers while performing material handling tasks.
What sets PowerLift® apart from other training, is that we teach a technique that doesn’t just work in the classroom, but on the job. With our unique training approach, your employees will learn from the outset how to use PowerLift® on the job each and every day. And they will understand why the PowerLift® techniques are better than the old way of lifting.We have been teaching our unique patented techniques for over three decades.We have powerful, customized programs for organizations of all types. By implementing our system, our clients have been able to significantly reduce the number of strain/sprain injuries sustained by their employees.
