In a recent year, over 500,000 hand injuries were a painful lesson in how the loss of a finger or the use of a hand can seriously change someone's life. That's one of many reasons why OSHA requires your company to:
Perform a workplace hazard assessment
Control hazards before you start any job task
Provide safety training.
Would we have music without hands to play an instrument? Imagine missing two or three fingers trying to change the channel on your TV set or carve into a juicy steak. Think about the difficulties you would face driving a car or caring for your family.
Your two hands are a vital part of everything you do - from scratching an itch to fixing your car. They are your most important tools.
