If you're a craft worker in the masonry industry looking for information on hand tools and gloves, check out a new resource from the CPWR (The Center for Construction Research and Training). Choose Hand Safety.org is an easy-to-navigate website that includes tips for selecting appropriate hand tools and gloves, and information on injury prevention. There's also database of chemical products commonly used in the masonry industry - searchable by craft and task - that includes the product's chemical composition and the type of glove to use with it.
Training and other outreach materials available from the site include guidebooks, toolbox talks, and handouts.
