We wrote the book on hand safety!
Around the glove, hand injuries are the number one preventable industrial accident - in manufacturing, construction, oil & gas, you name it.
But what actually works to protect workers' hands? What kind of training actually gets through? What causes a worker to act safely (or not) in the moment? Which stats are meaningful and which are useless? What infrastructure changes and PPE (personal protective equipment) decisions actually pay off? How do cultural issues play in? How have others reduced hand injuries by 50, even 90 percent?
This book is a must-read for safety managers, or anyone who wants to create a safer, better workplace.
In Rethinking Hand Safety, Superior Glove's vice president, Joe Geng, takes the tough questions to major companies, leading safety experts, veteran safety managers, industrial psychologists, independent trainers, glove designers, and on-the-line workers.
The result is an eye-opening, perspective-shifting, hard-hitting manual for changing a company culture, altering worker attitudes, and finally doing hand safety right.
