Hand injuries are a major concern in the mining industry with traumatic hand injuries being a common occurrence and other long-term exposure injuries that follow. Not only do these injuries have a physical and mental cost associated for the workers, but they also lead to increased medical expenses, decline in productivity, and lost wages.

The good news is that hand injuries are the #1 preventable workplace injury across all industries. So, if hand injuries are so preventable, why are they so common? Assessing barriers miners face to using gloves, understanding their work environment, and employing hand safety best practices are some of the steps in reducing hand injuries.
