Hand injuries – like the vast majority of workplace injuries – are preventable. Still, year after year, hand injuries are among the leading causes of missed workdays and emergency-room visits, costing employers millions of dollars in workers’ compensation costs and lost productivity.

“Zero excuses is more than just a clever phrase,” said keynote speaker David Lynn, CSP, vice president of signature services for Greenville, S.C.-based Life and Safety Consultants Inc.
“Zero excuses means that you accept the fact that you’re accountable [for hand safety] and that you control it.”
