Training Time: 18 minutes
Imagine performing daily activities such as writing, driving a car, or using a phone without your hands. Because hands are used so frequently, hand safety can be taken for granted. The construction and manufacturing industries pose a particular risk to the hands due to the size and complexity of the equipment and machinery present. This course will provide general hand safety awareness and discuss techniques for avoiding common hand injuries.
• Identify and describe the parts of the hand
• Identify safety guidelines for working with your hands
• Identify the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when working with your hands
