Right.. you need to go by the non-underlined part.. it uses THEIR hands.. and so has to be plural.

Nothing personal, but this is probably the third weirdest explanation I have ever seen in this forum. "their" has nothing to do with previous nouns - carpenters, dentists etc.

Carpenters, dentists, sewing machine operators, needlepointers, piano players, and indeed any people who (this describes "people" which is plural) work with their hands ("their hands" refers to "people's hands") for long hours can get carpal tunnel syndrome.
