Overview

Regardless of whether we are at work or at home, our hands are involved in almost everything we do. As a result, they are exposed to many different hazards. Bruises, breaks, cuts, and punctures are just some of the injuries our hands may suffer; certain tools and equipment may pose an amputation risk, and even repetitive movements can cause injuries over time. Fortunately, there are ways to guard against these hazards and prevent hand injuries. This course shows you how to protect your hands from injury while on-the-job.

To understand how the hand, wrist, or fingers may be injured, it is important to first know how they function. Understanding their skeletal, muscular, and nervous compositions provides you with a better appreciation of how important, yet fragile, they are. This course explains how hands work and are structured, how to use safe work practices to prevent injuries, and how to choose the proper tools and personal protective equipment. For example, the type of gloves you wear for protection varies depending on the work being done. Even if you prevent sudden and traumatic injuries, your hands, wrists and fingers are not out of danger. This course explains ergonomic injuries, how and why they happen and how to prevent them.

Utilize the information provided in this hand safety training and learn how to best protect yourself from, and prevent, injuries to your hands, wrists and fingers.
