Hands, wrists and fingers are the most used parts of an individuals body. People use them in accomplishing tasks in every line of work, from building and construction to office and laboratory positions.

OSHA's Position On Hand, Wrist and Finger Safety Training
Consider the fact that we use our hands, wrists and fingers more than any other individual parts of our bodies. Whether it’s in construction, driving, office or laboratory work, these essential body components are in constant use and, as such, are susceptible to injury. The number of serious injuries to hands, wrists and fingers, that are reported, number in excess of over half a million annually. These types of injuries can include; lacerations, crushing injuries, fractures and dismemberment. In addition, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tendinitis injury reports have become more prominent in recent times. As a result, OSHA (OSHA 1910.138) has enacted a number of mandatory regulations that are designed to protect workers from these hazards. The topics covered by our hand, wrist and finger safety training videos include:
- Hand, wrist and finger physiology
- Common hazard identification
- Proper work procedures (OSHA Standards)
- Proper tool use
- Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) (OSHA 1910.138(b))
