I have to report a first aid incident that I experienced at home. I burned my finger while removing a thermocouple from meat in my smoker. I was wearing gloves but there was a hole in the tip of the index finger, right where I grabbed a hot thermocouple.
As the sting wore off, I realized that the small hole in my glove was in a spot where I needed the most protection. It makes sense, right?
Be sure to check the condition of you gloves regularly. Through them out if they are damaged. Even if they just have a small hole.
Did you know that hand injuries make up one out five debilitating injuries?
