  HAND AND FINGER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Gloves can safeguard your hands from a variety of
  hazards: cuts and scrapes, heat and cold exposure,
  chemical burns, disease transmission. There are gloves
  to suit every need and new hi-tech materials make
  them lighter and more comfortable.




Never put your hands or fingers on loads being moved
  mechanically without watching for pinch points and
  other potential hazards.
An exception is working near reciprocating or rotating
  machine parts; gloves can be caught up, and fingers
  and hands can be pulled into the machine.
Never use hands to stop rotating parts. Never use fingers
  to align holes in parts, likeP castings.O N S U L T A N T S A L B E R T A C A N A D A

It’s a good idea to not wear rings when
    working with tools and equipment.
    There is a chance that the ring can get
    caught and pull your finger off. Rings
    and other jewelry can also conduct
    electricity.
When lifting, check objects for
    protrusions, nails, splinters, screws,
    metal banding, or other sharp or
    pointed objects.
Watch your fingers and hands when
    lowering heavy loads; they could get
    pinched. Adjust grinder tool rests
    properly (no further than 1/8 inch
    away from the wheel) to avoid getting
    a finger into the gap or having the
    work piece hurled at you or your co-
    workers.

DO’S   AND    DON’TS




             P BAR Y SAFETY CONSULTANTS ALBERTA CANADA
Never use your fingers to test the
 temperatures of gases, liquids, or solids.
 Damage can happen before your reflexes
 remove your fingers.




When handling large metal drums, watch out
 for pinch points and sharp edges; one drum
 can roll against another, catching your
 fingers in between.
                      P BAR Y SAFETY CONSULTANTS ALBERTA CANADA
Handle sharp or pointed tools, like hatchets, chisels, punches,
  awls, knives and machine blades with extreme care. Avoid
  using your fingers to fish out things lying near saw blades,
  knife blades, or parts moving together, such as a punch
  press, rotating parts of drill bits and reciprocating parts of
  in-running rolls, since this can be hazardous.

  vehicle, and if done correctly it also prevents cuts and hand injuries.

If you are transporting mud trailers like this, all pallets must be properly secured to prevent them from shifting
      during transport. No opened bags should be transported unless they have been properly contained in an
      approved container.
