Lying on the River Cleddau, to the north of Pembroke, in south-west Wales, in the county of Pembrokeshire, is Pembroke Dock. Pembroke Dock was originally a fishing village that went by the name of Paterchurch. But after the construction of the Royal Naval Dockyard in the year 1814, there was a big expansion that came about here. After Milford Haven and Haverfordwest, Pembroke Dock is the 3rd largest town in Pembrokeshire.

Tips to prevent back injuries
- If you have to lift things at your place of work, before you start work, be sure to stretch and loosen up.
- Staying in good physical shape is a good way of preventing back injuries. A “pot belly” puts stress and weight on your spine.
- When you are reaching to pick up something, do not bend at your waist. It is important that you keep your back straight and if you need to bend, it is better to bend from the hips.
- As far as possible, do not pick up heavy objects that are placed below your knee level. Ensure that the objects that you need to pick up are placed above the level of your knees and below the level of your shoulders.
- If you feel that the object that you need to lift is too heavy for you, do not take any risk. Get help to lift that object.
