Why is a hand protection program necessary?

Hand Protection Programs

A proper hand protection program is necessary to ensure employees are informed in the proper ways to insert and remove their safety gloves, and to safely and efficiently perform tasks.

The type of “Hand Protection Program,” which is implemented will depend on the type of machinery or area involved. Some employers opt to use a DVD to train employees on the proper use of safety work gloves, while another company would prefer a live demonstration from the manufacturer of the work gloves. However, the combination of these methods, brochures and other literature on hand safety would be the ideal way to educate employees about protecting their hands.
