Safety Tip Tuesday

This Tuesday lets talk about those teeth! When operating a wheel handbrake ensure your fingers and thumbs are not within the inside spoke areas. Unexpected movement from the brake wheel could cause injury. Hold the outside rim of the brake wheel firmly and make rotations in a controlled manner, without locking your fingers within the spoke areas. Quick yanks or rotations to the brake wheel may not allow for a firm hold and may also cause injury if other obstructions occur during the movement. Slow, controlled movements and rotations on the brake wheel are most desirable and may prevent injury.
