When did you last review your hand safety program?
When it comes to your PPE spend, you may not realize that hand protection is costing you a lot more than you think.

Hand Protection represents a consequential category of your overall PPE program – from both a dollar investment and risk mitigation perspective. Statistically, finger/hand/wrist injuries account for roughly 40% of recordable industry incidents, while glove purchases account for upwards of 30% of your PPE spend.
And even though so many organizations invest a substantial amount of money into hand protection programs each year, statistics still show that 70% of hand injuries occur when workers are not wearing gloves. The reason workers forgo gloves range from issues with comfort and feel to their gloves not matching the hazards. With workplaces trending towards increased automation, tighter deadlines, and multi-function job roles, your hand protection program becomes outdated at an increasing pace.
You need a hand protection program that recognizes these factors and evolves along with your workplace.
