It’s important to ensure that you have adequate protection when handling chemicals that are potentially hazardous to your health. Here’s what you need to know about choosing the right gloves to handle the different chemical applications and hazards.
Some of the most common workplace injuries involve the hands. This is unsurprising as they are the part of the body responsible for carrying out the work. However, as anyone who has ever had a hand injury can tell you, hand injuries can be the most painful and take the longest to heal, which means down time from work and a drop in productivity.
Injured hands account for up to 45% off all workplace accidents and it is estimated that at least 60% of those injuries could have been avoided with the correct protection. So what can you do to avoid such injuries? It starts with simply wearing the correct gloves.
