Choosing the correct gloves for the task at hand is one of the most important safety steps you can take, but the sheer number of glove types, styles, and materials can be overwhelming. We're here to help.
First, you need to determine the type of safety hazard your worker faces. Is a durable, all-around work glove required, or is protection against specific chemical hazards, heat, or physical damage a priority? Does the worker require extended protection against the safety hazard, or does he or she only have limited contact with threat?
The materials used to make protective gloves affects their appropriate use. Be sure to keep this in mind when picking the pair of safety gloves for you.There can be a range of appropriate glove materials within any of these styles. This is especially true for chemical resistant gloves, where matching the correct glove material with the chemical being handled is vital for worker safety.
