In Minnesota, overexertion while lifting is the second leading cause or workplace injuries, accounting for 15 percent of all work-related injuries. When overexertion while pushing or pulling — two common actions that typically accompany lifting — is included, that figure rises to 19 percent and leads all other causes of work injuries.
