    Silver Spring, MD – A new website from the Center for Construction Research and Training aims to help construction workers and contractors prevent hand injuries and disorders.

    The Choose Hand Safety website features information on hand tools and gloves, types of injuries, preventive measures, and training. Resources include toolbox talks, handouts and ergonomics videos.

    The center, which is known as CPWR and is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, developed the website with the Masonry Research to Practice Partnership.
