Glove range encourages worker compliance
Melbourne, May 5, 2013 - Hansen Yuncken, one of Australia's largest construction firms, is carrying out major extensions to the Burwood campus of Victoria's Deakin University.
Site foreman at the University construction site, Jason Malouhos, said the company was anxious to increase the level of safety for its workers and reduce the number of injuries and lost time throughout its construction projects.
"We have recently introduced a 'glove and clip policy' to encourage broad acceptance of the need for hand protection. This way, whether or not the worker wishes to wear gloves, they always have the right hand protection ready for any task.
"Ansell introduced us to a number of alternative protection solutions. We found that while the Ansell medium duty gloves are quite suitable for on-site management staff, their ActivArmr® Heavy Laborer Glove and the ActivArmr®Carpenter Glove are ideal for many of the tough manual tasks found on our sites.
"Our people have found these gloves enable them to carry out their tasks easily and just as important, are easy on their hands. They're a real upgrade from the bulky riggers' gloves which we have been accustomed to for the last twenty years, and which haven't given us any flexibility of style for the task being undertaken."
"With the task specific ActivArmr gloves we now have a glove that's comfortable for the work, and avoids the frustration caused by the old gloves which often had restricted movement and a lack of feel for those activities that require finer hand movements."
"Thanks to the range of Ansell's task-specific gloves, we are experiencing a higher level of compliance with our glove policy, and it's been a really good safety outcome for Hansen Yuncken and its people," Jason said.
