Advancing Hand Safety Module
To prevent hand-finger-wrist-arm injuries, personal protective equipment and machine guarding is important – but not enough. We apply an action skill approach that places workers in control of their own hand safety by elevating:
- abilities to direct attention (selecting, switching, and sustaining at their control),
- judgment (including identifying levels of accepted risk), the impact of brain, eyes, torso, and base on keeping hands safe,
- physical skills of heightened eye-hand coordination, range of motion, leverage, positioning, alignment, and more.
