Blackwoods – Selecting appropriate impact protection

Impact injury risk is common in many industry sectors, with worker’s hands most likely to suffer the effects of unwanted forcible contact with machinery, tools and other hazards.

The likelihood of injury increases when workers are required to use their hands to manipulate or guide machinery into place, to operate in adverse weather conditions, or where the presence of lubricants, liquids and oils makes gripping tools and other equipment especially difficult.

In any industry sector where there is a risk of crush or impact injury, safety and operations managers should consider the use of gloves that offer suitable impact protection for the tasks being carried out.
