Essential Arm & Wrist Protection.

safety sleeves in the workplace

Great emphasis is put on hand protection in industrial environments but arms and wrists may be at risk too. Sometimes they’re overlooked and this can lead to injury. With the use of correct PPE, many of these injuries can be avoided or at least, reduced in severity. That’s why it’s important to be aware of the full range of safety solutions that are available to extend protection beyond the hand.

Common risks to be aware of

Different industries experience different hazards and each will have their own clear codes of practice in order to manage them. However, it’s essential to be mindful of the risks in the moment and as tasks are actually being carried out. Hazards are many and various, these are a few common areas of concern.
  • Handling sharp, abrasive objects or materials
  • Reaching over or around machinery
  • Reaching into skips, bins or other receptacles containing sharp objects or debris
  • Sharp or jagged edges on shelves, work surfaces or storage areas
  • Accidental contact with hot objects or surfaces
  • Splash from hot or corrosive liquids
