Every daywe face a variety of hazards. Machinery that can pull and smash a hand. Toolswith the potential to rip through protective gloves, and coercive materialsthat can eat through skin. Hazardous situations come in all shapes and sizes,if we’re not on the lookout, these situations can lead to real trouble. Everyyear thousands of people suffer injuries to the hands, wrists, and fingers. We’veall felt the initial pain of an injury. But with any accident pain is just thebeginning.

We needto take special care of our hands. They’re tool valuable too lose. To help usunderstand how our hands can be injured we should take a look at how they work.
