I recently started a new job in a manufacturing plant that makes brass plumbing and heating parts. Many of the parts that I handle have fine metal shavings on them which tend to stick in your fingers and thumbs. Some of them end up getting buried just below the surface of the skin.
The shavings are very small and very hard to see. Once buried into the skin they cause soreness and pain when any area of the fingers, hands, and thumbs that have them come in contact with just about anything. At this point my fingers and thumbs are so sore that it's hard to use them.
Does anyone have any suggestions on anything that can be used to draw the shavings back up above the surface of the skin where they can be removed? Any and all ideas appreciated.
