A Few Tips in Hand Safety

Posted by Melanie Predolich on

It is always helpful to learn new things, which is why this week we’ve rounded up a quick list of some tips you should familiarize yourself with when it comes to hand safety.
  1. What Not to Do: Sometimes knowing what to avoid is just as important as knowing what to do. To improve your hand safety, avoid the following situations: doing an unsafe action “just this once”, placing hands near moving equipment parts, working fast instead of smart, putting hands where they are not visible to you, depending on your reflexes, wearing jewelry beneath your gloves.
  2. Analyze Your Job Hazards: In order to maintain a status quo of safety in your work environment, it is important to analyze all potential hazards. This will help you to identify where there are areas of higher risk, and how you can protect against those things.
  3. Right Glove, Right Job: This should go without saying, but when selecting a work glove to protect your hands, you need to make sure that you are selecting a glove that is designed to protect against the specific hazards and risks present in the task you will be performing.
  4. Care for Your Gloves: In order to keep your gloves in the most pristine working condition, and keep them operating at their highest capacity to protect you, make sure that you store them properly in a dry place as well as clean them regularly.
