SAN FRANCISCO and CHICO, Calif., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- State Compensation Insurance Fund is presenting a free safety and health seminar as part of State Fund's Employer Education Series, featuring its own innovative and acclaimed back-injury-prevention process: State Fund's Back Connection(TM). The three-hour seminar entitled "Watch Your Back" introduces an educational and easy-to-use DVD that shows employers how they can involve the very people they are trying to protect -- their employees -- in this interactive back-injury-prevention program. Specialists from State Fund's Ergonomics Services Unit will present a complete overview of the DVD's features on Wednesday morning, November 14, in the University of Phoenix North Valley Learning Center, Chico.
Offered only to current State Fund policyholders and at no charge, the seminar will provide attendees with a complimentary copy of the DVD for hands-on participation during the session, and implementation afterwards at the workplace.

State Fund's Back Connection(TM) provides all the resources employers need to develop an effective back-injury-prevention process customized to their business.
Back-injury prevention has always been a difficult process for business owners to address.

State Fund has developed a product designed to help both large and small employers:
-- Reduce the risk of back injuries.
-- Increase productivity.
