Preventing Hand Injuries Look after your hands: When you stick them into drawers & cabinets. When you handle papers, staplers, and other office devices. Keep sharp objects in safe containers, or guard blades and points. Use needles & syringes carefully to avoid injury to yourself and to others. RPS Office Safety

Preventing Hand Injuries Pick up broken glass with a broom & dust pan, or wear leather gloves. Wrap the glass in thick paper, and label it so that the cleaning staff will know what it is. Slivers of glass should be picked up with a damp paper towel then, discard the paper towel. If you have a lot of broken glass, purchase a “Broken Glass Container” from a safety supply vendor.
