EXTRA, EXTRA/Lending a helping hand to hand safety
Safety measures and personal protective equipment only help workers when they are used properly. To help train people on the importance of protecting their hands during manual labor, Virginia Beach, Va.-based Coastal Training Technologies created a 20-minute video training program that describes how to avoid physical trauma and chemical injuries to hands and how to select proper gloves. The video, “Hand Protection: Lessons For A Lifetime,” is included in a kit that contains 20 employee handbooks, a leader’s guide with a customizable PowerPoint presentation and a laminated poster.
