would others agree that the standing overhead press has a greater risk of injury than the power clean ?
No, I'd disagree. Are you placing too much weight on the bar, or even using a 20kg bar and not being ready for it? If a person starts light enough, they naturally progress and there are seldom issues; when people start too heavy, they bend back, and bam they have themselves back problems.
