April 28, 2006, Newsletter Issue #13: Choosing The Right Work Glove

Tip of the Week

When choosing work gloves, reflect on the characteristics the work gloves should possess, rather than choosing one based on its price tag. However, this does not mean the price should not be considered at all, but rather know buying quality gloves might costs a little more.

The material the work glove is manufactured from will also be a factor in determining how strong a work glove is, and how much protection it can offer you. This is reflected in the hazards a work glove will deal with, and is something to think about. For example, a latex disposable glove will be useless at offering hand protection when using chemicals with the potential to spill or splash. A stronger glove made of rubber material, or a leather work glove would be better.

Another factor to consider when choosing industrial work gloves is the type of work the glove is reserved for. A glove made of a material easily broken down, or not able to withstand “wear and tear,” would be of little value in the construction industry. Whereas a pair of gloves made of a durable material would be better. Therefore, do not only consider the price, but the field of work and the hazards available.
