<strong>How to Improve Hand Safety at Workplace</strong>

Your wellbeing and safety at work are crucial.

Every day, especially at work, you use your hands hundreds of times without even noticing.

Your hands are one of your most valuable and precious instruments, in our opinion at Pharmpak. We believe that everyone should be aware of a few basic guidelines to enhance hand safety at work because of this.

What is Hand Safety?

Hand safety is the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and risk assessment to safeguard your hands from a variety of accidental events and risks.

5 Ways to Increase Hand Safety at Work

1. Consult with your manager, safety officer, or supervisor before beginning to take hand safety seriously. For your particular work environment, your workplace health and safety officer will have the most up-to-date suggestions and guidance.

2. Make sure your workplace is providing you with the PPE you need to wear and that you and your coworkers are wearing the PPE every single day if you work in an industrial, mining, healthcare or other industry that requires you to wear PPE.

3. Your PPE must fit you properly in terms of both length and width. For instance, it is crucial that your gloves fit properly when it comes to hand safety. 

4. The majority of personal protective equipment (PPE) is often reusable; however, when it comes to hand safety, PPE is typically split between disposable gloves and reusable gloves. 

It is crucial to understand whether wearing disposable or reusable gloves is required at your place of employment. Hand injuries are more likely to happen when disposable gloves are used repeatedly. Additionally, wearing reusable gloves when disposable gloves should have been worn will reduce dexterity and increase the risk of hand injuries and incidents.

5. Check to see if any chemicals, machinery, tools, or equipment is out-of-date, and if it is, notify your safety advisor as soon as you can. When using new tools, machinery, equipment, or chemicals, always seek assistance. For the most recent equipment manuals and chemical specification sheets, ask your safety advisor. Your risks of suffering hand injuries while working are decreased in this manner.
