Why is it important to choose the right industrial protective gloves?
If there's anything more important than making sure workers wear cut-resistant gloves, it's making sure workers wear the correct cut-resistant gloves for their specific industry and job duties. Wearing the wrong cut-resistant gloves will not protect the wearer from all potential hazards of the surrounding environment. There are a few factors to consider when choosing cut-resistant gloves. For example, does the wearer need protection from fine sharps like needles or other sharps like nails and screws? With this information, you can evaluate the gloves you need. In this case, deciding whether you need stab-resistant gloves or needle-resistant needles? Other considerations include:
Handling purpose (what the gloves will be used for) when employees perform specific tasks
How much manual skill is required for each task?
What is the risk of exposure to each hand hazard? How often do they wear gloves? How long do they wear gloves? How to stay healthy?
