    Default In hand or on hand

    Hi,

    I would be very grateful if you could explain the usage of "in hand", "on hand" and "at hand".


    Thanks

    There will always be an officer at hand/on hand should problems arise. Close by. At hand is more common.
    I have the situation in hand. I am in control of it.
