Overview

We use our hands for almost everything we do. In the workplace, our hands are vulnerable to traumatic injuries such as cuts, bruises, punctures, and even amputation. This safety training video teaches employees how to protect their hands from injury.

The best way to protect ourselves from hand injuries is to prevent them from happening. Viewers learn many practical safety tips to protect against injury. For example, if a worker is angry or distracted an injury is more likely to occur, so it is important to cool off and refocus before doing the task. Another preventive measure is to routinely review the work area for issues that could potentially lead to an injury such as a cluttered workspace, poor lighting, or debris on the floor.

This course also explains what ergonomic injuries are and how they happen over time. Viewers are shown ways to prevent ergonomic injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis, from occurring.
