Hands-on advice

Published:  25 June, 2014

Hands are incredibly vulnerable in the workplace and itís a part of the body that is often actively put into or near high risk areas. 2012/2013 figures released by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) showed there to be more than 17,400 handling injuries to employees, with 7% being major. Together with data from 2010/11, where it was reported 2,987 workers were ďinjured through cuts from sharp/coarse material or equipment or from trapped fingersĒ, it is clear that employees still need to be made aware of the risks and the protective solutions available.

In order to reduce handling injuries in the workplace, itís important that suitable protective gloves are worn. As part of itís commitment to safety ARCO has produced a dedicated Expert Guide to Hand Protection. The Expert Guide can provide customers with an overview of legislation, EN standards and workplace hazards, to assist in the selection of the right protection for the job.

The Arco Expert Guide to Hand Protection can be downloaded free of charge at: www.arco.co.uk/hands
