KEEP YOUR HANDS OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE!
The goal of HANDS SAFE work is to reduce hand and finger related injuries. This toolbox highlights five accidents that have occurred within our organization recently.
The 5 HANDS SAFE rules are:
1. Use the right gloves for your work
Use the right gloves for your work
2. An employee suffered a cut while removing a DN500 blind plate when not wearing proper protective equipment.

A typical example of an incident where the hands are kept on the load can occur during the horizontal insertion of a pipe into a steel structure. When bringing the pipe into place in the steel structure, a rigger can get stuck with the left ring finger between two flanges. This can be prevented, for example, by using a steering line.
Following the cleaning of an order with a grinder, an employee wanted to put the grinder away. Because it was still spinning (no brake), the brush disc hit his finger causing injury to a finger.
Don't put your hands in the line of fire of moving parts
Thinking ahead, can my hands get in the line of fire?
While attaching a four-jump to a container, one of the chains wrapped around the container and landed on the left index finger of an employee who was attaching a two-jump at the time. This caused the left index finger to be "crushed" between two steel hooks resulting in injury.
