If there is one thing more important than ensuring workers are wearing safety gloves, it is ensuring workers are wearing the correct safety gloves for the specific industry and tasks they perform on the job. Wearing the wrong safety gloves won’t protect the wearer from all the potential hazards in their environment. There are some considerations that need to be made when choosing safety gloves. For example, does the wearer need protection from thin sharps like needles or other sharps like nails and screws? By deciphering this information you can assess which glove you’ll need. In this case, the decision to be made is whether you require puncture resistant gloves or needle stick resistant?
Other considerations are stated below:
l Handling applications (what will the gloves be used for)
l How employees use their hands when they perform specific tasks
l How much manual dexterity is required for each task
l How great the risk of exposure is for each hand hazard
l How often they are wearing the gloves
l How long they are wearing the gloves
l How to get a good fit
