Strength & Control
Our Advanced Module provides alignment principles and methods for redirecting force by building on the foundation of skills and information learned in the Strength & Control module. With tactics—including physical, attention, and judgment—and strategies to reducing injury we show you how to integrate these techniques into daily activities to reduce the impact of such potentially harmful forces as handling materials or using tools.
Proven techniques for preventing slips, trips, and falls in such company risks as: walking on slippery or uneven surfaces, moving between different surfaces, on stairs and ladders, on ramps, in dimly light environments, stepping over and under, ducking under, getting on and off equipment. Safely recover balance and minimize injuries from unavoidable falls.
