Lesson Description

Can you put a price tag on the use of your hands? Some people don't realize the important of their hands until they aren't able to be used any longer.


Hand injuries send a million workers to ERs each year, and hand injuries are the No. 2 leading cause of work-related injury and the most preventable through proper personal protective equipment (PPE).


This online safety course helps users recognize, identify and describe the value of PPE for hand safety.
