Causes and Types of Hand and Wrist Injuries

Hand and wrist injuries stem from various causes, such as slip and falls, dog bites, auto accidents, malfunctioning machinery, hazardous job sites, and other workplace incidents. Regardless of the cause, these injuries can significantly impact an individual’s daily life and financial stability.

When a hand or wrist injury occurs, individuals may experience loss of motion, dexterity, grip strength, and difficulty completing even simple tasks. In many professions, hands are integral to one’s skill set and value as a worker. Hand and wrist injuries typically fall into six main categories:

  1. Lacerations (cuts)
  2. Fractures and dislocations
  3. Soft tissue injuries and amputations
  4. Infections
  5. Burns
  6. High-pressure injuries (e.g., from grease and paint guns)

According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation 29 CFR 1910.138, employers must mandate appropriate hand protection when employees’ hands are exposed to hazards like:

  • Absorption of harmful substances through the skin
  • Severe cuts/lacerations
  • Severe abrasions
  • Punctures
  • Chemical burns
  • Thermal burns
  • Harmful temperature extremes
