Workplace injuries to the hands can cause amputations

Many workers in various California industries take precautions to prevent all kinds of occupational hazards, but many forget to protect their hands. Careers can be ruined and lives permanently changed by severe workplace injuries to the hands, especially when it leads to amputations. Hand safety should start with the basics like keeping hands clear from closing doors and always wearing protective gloves as protection from acids, sharp objects, splinters, chemicals, electrical burns and more.

How safe is the agricultural industry?

The agricultural industry is huge and critical to the well-being of the nation's economy. We have come a long way since the days of single-family farms on the open plains. Modern agricultural production is above anything that has ever been seen before in human history, and it has to be with the world population growing and more and more countries depending upon our exports for food. It's not easy to feed this many people, and it takes a dedicated workforce that puts in long hours and hard labor.

What are the types of hazards that cause workplace injuries?

Safety authorities in California prescribe strict safety standards in all industries, tasking employers with the responsibility to protect the health and safety of their employees. Safety hazards that could cause workplace injuries exist in all occupational settings, and steps must be taken to mitigate them. Being able to recognize the different types of risks can help with taking precautions to avoid them.
