​On the Journey to Safety Excellence, risk reduction is very important. Overexertion is a leading cause of unintentional injuries in the United States. While overexertion affects people differently, the most common injuries are strains and sprains, especially to the lower back. Overexertion injuries result from excessive physical effort, such as: carrying, holding, lifting, lowering, pulling, pushing and turning.
