Ask someone what the hazards are on the job and you’ll get a variety of answers, depending on their profession. The word “hazard” is defined as an unavoidable danger or risk, even though often foreseeable. By properly identifying and assessing workplace hazards, injury to hands can be minimized, if not avoided altogether.
As part of its monthly safety awareness program, one of our customers developed a top 10 list of hand hazards. They had identified that these 10 were responsible for a majority of hand injuries in their workplace and developed a great employee safety awareness program around them.
