Ring on Your Finger? Take It Off! Ring Avulsion Is Real (Losing a Finger Because of a Ring)

If you search for the term “ring avulsion” you’ll find lots of gory images of lost fingers and mangled hands, all due to the dangers of wearing a ring while on the job, working on the car or around the house, etc. There are also lots of medio-technical papers which aren’t inviting to the average reader since they’re filled with lots of medical jargon (and sometimes require a paid subscription).

New Article Explains Danger of Wearing a Ring

However, it was only this week that an excellent overview of the dangers of wearing rings while doing certain tasks was published online. If you want to know more about ring avulsion, check out CED Investigative Technologies’ latest article, “Ring Avulsion: the Danger of Wearing a Ring!Engineering Experts in Railroad Claims and Litigation Meet the Expert: Grant Bevill, Ph.D.”

This article is worth your time to read, whether you are a worker or a boss, and whether or not you work in the railroad industry, work construction, do mill work or mining, or any other type of thing that brings your hands into contact with heavy tools, electrical appliances, and the like.

Leave the Wedding Band at Home or in Your Pocket

Simply put, that wedding band or class ring may have sentimental value but you need to weigh that against permanent injury to your hand – including losing that ring finger.

And, if your wife or husband is disturbed about you leaving that ring off your finger (since the wedding band does mark you as mated in our society), then pull up those images that pop up when the phrase “ring avulsion” is searched. Only, don’t do this right before dinner.
