"Practice using forceps between the 1st and 2nd digits instead of using the thumb and the first digit."
What the hell? Maybe they're talking about other kinds of forceps (other than the tweezer kind, that is.) But I saw this and immediately went into the lab to try to use a pair of tweezers with my index and middle finger. No dice.
Interestingly, this language was seen on my EHS training software as well as the EHS websites of both governmental and academic institutions. It's clearly something that some commitee came up with. I want to see a YouTube of a EHS employee using their first two fingers (and no thumb!) to usefully employ a pair of tweezers.
