Workshop Materials

The centerpiece of the program is an innovative workshop exercise in which participants immobilise their dominant hand. They then work in a small team to build a prosthetic hand.  Helping Hands take the prosthetic hands that are built during the exercise and distribute them to amputee landmine victims throughout the developing world.

Challenge

Hand and finger injuries are currently the most frequent injury type occurring on a wellsite. 72 serious injury claims relating to hand and finger injuries were made in the period 2012-2015 for the CSG Drilling and Completions industry.  This was 27% of all serious injury claims in this period.

The high incidence of hand injuries is not just confined to Drilling and Completions.  In 2017, more than 40% of injuries across our entire Industry involved hands, fingers and thumbs.

Solution

Develop and roll-out a hand and finger safety program designed to reduce the incidence of hand and finger injuries at our well sites.
