Chemical Resistance Safety Gloves: Myths and Facts
When it comes to chemical resistance gloves, one cannot deny that there are some misconceptions among the end users. One of the causes for this misconception is the absence of helpful information for the end users to make an informed choice. Added to this confusion, most of the chemical suppliers fail to provide accurate knowledge about the right glove materials to be considered when exposed to their chemicals. More than often, we come across a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) which simply states “wear protective gloves” or “use impervious gloves”.
Chemical cocktails: helping you get the work safety balance right
THE workplace reality is that many industrial and tradesmen safety gloves have to protect against a range of chemicals. The factory floor and building and mine sites are among many areas where chemical cocktails are used for various tasks. So detailed information on chemical composition at your workplace is vital in selecting the right chemical protective glove.
Close for comfort: work safety gloves size does matter
AT the risk of stating the obvious, to know what size safety glove you need you must first know the hand size. The best method is to first measure around your hand, above the thumb and below the fingers. A dressmaker's tape measure is ideal for this.
