Next to back injuries, the most common workplace injuries are to the hands and almost entirely preventable through wearing the correct gloves for the job.
In 2015 it was reported that 39% of hand injuries were from cuts or lacerations. Puncture injuries by comparison were just 13% and fractures 11.2%. Taking these stats even further nearly 71% of arm and hand injuries were preventable by wearing the correct PPE. In the case of the 39% hand injuries thats a simple as wearing cut-resistant gloves. Non-compliance is a major factor, but it is also the employers responsibility to provide suitable workwear and enforce the wearing of it.
