It's hard to know what hazards will reveal themselves on a given job. No matter how much you reduce risks, accidents still happen, and one of the most common areas they occur is on your hands. While there's no excuse for not wearing hand protection
for work-related tasks, there's also no excuse for being unprepared when injuries present themselves. Don't try to sort out injuries on the fly - have protocols in place and first aid equipment on hand. Mistakes happen, but how you respond to them can make all the difference in your workers' health and safety.
