September Safety 

Your hands are your most valuable tool! There are many things you can do to keep your hands safe, and here are a few of the most common:

  1. Wear Gloves: Always protect your hands by wearing work gloves when handling rough materials or performing operations where you are using your hands to lift or move objects. ​​

  2. Machine Guards: Never operate machinery that does not have a working guard to protect your hands. 

  3. Remove Rings: They can very easily catch on machinery and other objects, resulting in lacerations, amputations or broken bones. 

  4. Sharp Objects: Utilize the correct safety procedures when handling knives, box cutters and other sharp objects. 

  5. Pinch Points: When using your hands to move an object, whether it is on a hand truck or you are carrying it, be sure your path is wide enough for you to move through safely before you start the job. 

  6. Speak Up: If you have any other issues regarding the protection of your hands on the job, talk to your supervisor.
