The purpose of this course is to increase employee awareness of the hand’s vulnerability to injury and educate workers on safe practices when using their hands in order to reduce or prevent work-related hand injuries. Because hands are used in virtually every work task, they are involved in up to 80% of work-related injuries. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports that hand injuries account for more than one million emergency room visits per year. Decreasing the number of hand injury incidents will reduce lost work time and help maintain both productivity and worker quality of life.
