Hand Protection from DENIOS

When employee’s hands are exposed to a potential hazard, it is required that the employer provide them with the correct protection.  Depending on the task and the hazard will depend on what type of protection a worker will need.  It is up to the employer to evaluate the working conditions and identify the risks and seek out a solution for the safety of the worker.

Gloves come in many different styles to address the man potential risks our hands may face.  There are gloves that will keep a worker protected against heat and cold.  There are gloves that can be used when abrasions and cuts are potential risks.  There are different gloves to protect workers from exposure to chemicals or electricity.


Tips for choosing the correct glove

Don’t always buy the cheapest glove to save money.  Sometimes the least expensive glove will end up costing you more in the long run.  Depending on the activity the work is doing, they may go through a few pair of gloves a week with a lesser quality glove.  If you evaluate and select a glove that has a better quality or rating, your workers may not need as many gloves during the week.

On the flip side, you may not always need the highest level of glove for your application.  It is best to evaluate a few types of gloves to decide what will best meet your needs.

Make sure you are evaluating the correct type of glove for the correct application.  Sometimes many types of gloves can be used in different situations.  Know what your most important need is for protecting the hands of the worker, and do your research on what will be best fit for your needs. 

When working with chemicals and potentially hazardous substances that pose a high risk, it is crucial to evaluate the type of glove that will work best with the substance.  Glove manufacturers will have a a chart that will show you the permeation of their gloves and the different types of chemicals.  DENIOS can help to make sure you are selecting the correct glove when dealing with chemicals.
