Pinch Points & Hand Protection
A pinch point is commonly defined as any point where it is possible for a body part to be caught between moving and stationary plant or equipment. Pinch points are found in many places throughout a workplace.
Work tasks such as equipment maintenance, lifting materials, guiding loads, assembly line work and hoisting or hooking up trailers are just a few common tasks where pinch points are a common hazard.
The physical forces applied to the hand caught in a pinch point can vary and cause injuries ranging from bruises, cuts, fractures and scalping to mangled and amputated body parts, and even death.
