Finding the right work gloves
Finding gloves, safety gloves or water resistant gloves that are comfortable, provide the required protection and allow freedom of movement for your fingers can be hard to find. Gloves that also ensure a firm grip, are irrespective of weather conditions and stays on your hands throughout the work process can be quite a task, and require a thorough approach.
In order to ensure the protection that your work requires, it is important to choose gloves that protect against the risk factors users could be exposed to. The employer is responsible for providing the required protective equipment and training workers may need. This includes all types of safety gloves. Selecting the right glove, therefore, begins with a risk assessment of each individual working environment.
