An Overview on FingerSaver Tool
In 2019, the occupational injury statistics showed over 21% of finger injuries among the total body parts, a major part of these impeded hand and finger safety was produced by pinch and crush points. It comes in 3 sizes, 295 mm, 375 mm, 850 mm.
FingerSaver Tool, designed to protect fingers when flogging or hammering. Prevents hand and finger injury by keeping hands away from the hammer impact, cuts, pinch and crush points.
To get the matters under control, the safety engineers have combined innovative technologies with exceptional design functionality to introduce the FingerSaver– the ultimate FingerSaver safety tool.
While safety of sensitive body parts such as the head and eyes are rather highlighted subjects, hands free safety tools and procedures are often undermined across the industries. By incorporating the correct tool, the rate of finger and hand tool injuries are minimized, whereas the overall productivity of a production/service line could escalate significantly.
Without a FingerSaver, fingers are placed on the front line of danger while working with potentially harmful tasks. Several industries that can benefit from the hands free safety tools, including;
• Oil drilling and refinery both onshore and offshore sectors; with a statistic of 45% of hand and finger injuries, oil industry workers stand on the first line of benefiting from FingerSaver tool holder.
• Construction workers; working with hammering operations, particularly in heights, possess substantial risks towards hand and finger injuries that can turn to further complications.
• Maintenance technicians and operators in various industries; any work that encompasses testing and fitting pipes, flogging tool, possibility of hitting hand with hammer and bolts, spanners, confined space hammering, etc.
How It functions
To benefit the entire safety attributes of the FingerSaver safety tool, prior education on usage, features and the embargo of the FingerSaver device is rather crucial.
With a simple yet effective mechanism, the tool incorporates an attached string that tightens around the Nut and/or Bolt during any lifting or locating of the spanner/tool. It is further extended to increase the buffer zone, without compromising the grip.
The FingerSaver tool is intended to offer support of the tool equivalent to that of hands and fingers; its design carefully considered and tested on typical applications and uses where large spanners and flogging spanners are used on nuts and bolts.
Additionally the FingerSaver tool will absorb the direct shock and vibration from hammer impact and offers a more comfortable distance from hot equipment.
As all applications may vary, a risk assessment of its appropriate safe use should always be assessed by the user, prior every operation. The FingerSaver tool is NOT a lifting device and no safe working loads or breaking strains are implied or advised.
