Henry Tenten, Wim Bosman Transport
A relatively light pallet, about 3 meters long, was in the wrong place. I bent forwards to pick up this pallet and place it correctly. When I stood up straight, something went wrong. I felt a cracking sensation in my lower back. It hurt a lot and I knew instantly that this was bad. At this moment I am back at work, improvements have been made to my vehicle and I am now conscious of the way I need to bend and lift. So far there has been no sign of back pain. I owe this largely to STEP.
