Workplace Hand Injury: Figures
Cut-resistance Statistics: Getting a Perspective.
The first chart illustrates, in percentage terms, the incidence of cut injury to workers in the U.S. for the year 2006 - relative to other types of non-fatal injury. The second chart illustrates (also for the U.S. in 2006) the percentage of injury that occurs to the hands and fingers in the workplace - relative to other body parts. Both charts utilize only lost-time injury statistics.
When looking at the percentages, it is important to consider that not all injuries are preventable through the use of PPE, such as back injuries. Hand and finger cut injuries, however, are the most preventable.
