Sadly many workplaces do not provide the correct amount of training for their employees. There are rules which state in the 1974 health and safety act that adequate information training and instruction is required of all workers. This training is not a set amount; it will be dependent on the age and competency of the employee. Supervision and training will be much greater for new processes and for young and inexperienced employees. Training must also be well thought out because training to use a computer may allow mistakes to happen however mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger or inexperienced workers are in charge of large electrical equipment.
Any fractured bone requires the sufferer to undergo a period of rehabilitation whilst the bone is resetting. Scaphoid fractures are the most common type of carpal bone fractures; these fractures usually cause pain and sensitivity to the sufferers. Fractures can take between 6 to 12 weeks of being put in a cast to heal. If blood flow is disrupted by the fracture the bone will not heal. Surgery may be necessary to allow the fracture to heal.
