Stork Group “Safety Soundbite” - April

In April, one of our employees in Australia suffered a serious hand injury which resulted in a partial thumb amputation. This is the second serious hand injury incident this year - another employee whose life has been significantly impacted.

It’s easy for all of us to become complacent in everyday activities, underestimate the inherent hazards and the real impact on our lives. Especially with finger injuries, the risk perception is often low as most injuries can be treated with a band aid or perhaps a small stitch. However, a finger amputation can result in a life alterig event if you cannot use that hand in the same way anymore.

Let’s reset our risk perception and tomorrow take a completely fresh look at that routine task!
