Cutting operations are paramount to construction projects.  In years past, these types of operations have led to high injury rates, such as loss of a digit, eye or worse. With the help of implemented safe work practices, this injury rate has decreased. 

Typical safe work practices include: 

  • Utilizing eye and face protection (Safety glasses combined with a face shield),
  • Utilizing hand protection (Safety gloves), and
  • Operating a compliant hand/power tool (No recognizable damage and guarding present - if required).

In this picture, the subcontractor is utilizing long sleeves for arm protection as metal is being cut. 

Following these safe work practices will help ensure no digits or eyes go missing!
