Factors to Consider When Choosing Safety Gloves
We appreciate that you have a busy work schedule and need safety products that get the job done right away. That’s why the specialists here at SafetyCare are dedicated to helping customers to find the perfect solutions to suit their exact needs. With this in mind, we’re taking a look at safety gloves and how to choose the right ones for your staff.
What exactly do you need gloves for?
Suitability is the first factor to consider when choosing safety gloves. Depending on what your employees
do, they could require anything from latex gloves to cut resistant gloves. Whilst all of our safety
gloves are designed to offer reliable hand protection, the nature of the user’s
daily tasks really does make all the difference.
For instance, if staff work with oils, acids or dangerous
substances, they’ll need chemical gloves. Meanwhile, those who access
very cold environments will need a good pair of freezer gloves that can handle extremely
low temperatures. Then there are chain mail gloves, which offer exceptional hand
protection to people who regularly use sharp knives, such as butchers and other
food industry workers.
Check the glove’s features
Safety gloves come with all kinds of features that you need to
factor in. By making sure that the gloves you buy tick all the right boxes,
they’ll be ideally suited to the user’s needs. Examples of safety glove
features are very wide-ranging and can include any of the following:
and puncture resistance
or a long-term solution
Choosing the right fit
Whilst effectiveness is crucial, it’s also important that your
staff feel comfortable whilst wearing their safety gloves. This means that the
glove shouldn’t be too tight or loose and allow total manoeuvrability, enabling
the worker to carry out their tasks with ease and precision.
A poor-fitting glove doesn’t just inhibit the wearer’s ability to
do their job, it can also cause aches, pains, swelling and reduced mobility.
Ensuring that you have multiple sizes of glove available means that each worker
can choose a pair that fits them perfectly.
Safety glove training
We have well over 100 safety glove options in stock, ranging
from boxes of 100 deli fit gloves for maintaining ultimate
levels of food hygiene, to hot grip gloves that offer heat protection
up to 250C and anti-vibration gloves for people who work
with high-frequency vibrations.
Whichever you choose, make sure to train your staff in the
importance of safety gloves. This includes which ones to use according to their
working environment and how to properly store them when not in use. This will
ensure that employees get the most out of their gloves and also play a leading
role in making them last a very long time.
