Handling injuries accounted for 24% of the reported non-fatal injuries in the workplace.
An estimated 909,000 working days are lost per year due to handling injuries averaging 6.6 days for each injury.
Although the first choice should be to take the hands away from the risk, these figures show that hand safety is still a key concern for CSJV.
Therefore CSJV has developed an aide memoire/ assessment for selecting the correct glove for the activity.
The aide memoire/ assessment has a flow chart which takes the user through different steps to help select the correct glove.
