Hand and Pinch Point Safety Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
While on the job, using a tool improperly or not paying attention while working around heavy machinery can lead to damaging various parts of a worker’s hands. Because of the complexity of the hand, repairing the hand to its previous abilities may be difficult. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an average of 140,000 hand injuries were reported in 2011 resulting in about 5 days away from work per injury. While most serious hand injuries occur as a result of physical trauma from machinery, other hand injuries can be caused by ergonomic hazards due to repetitive motion. While these injuries are less severe, they result in the most days away from work compared to other injuries. Learners who successfully complete this course will demonstrate knowledge of how to identify the types of hand hazards, methods of hand protection and types of gloves and their properties.
