Are your gloves due for change?

Just as today’s workplaces look nothing like those of twenty years ago, personal protective equipment (PPE) is increasingly being developed to specifically address the new challenges and safety risks that contemporary work environments present. Thanks to improvements in design, material fabrication and production techniques, PPE products can now provide suitable defence against a range of hazards – particularly in the area of hand protection – providing a reliable and comfortable option that permits workers to safely carry out required duties.

The importance of hand ergonomics

In most industrial environments, repetitive manual tasks are an unavoidable daily requirement, with workers performing labour-intensive activities such as lifting or lowering, pushing or pulling and holding or restraining tools and other items.

How to prevent cross contamination

Cross-contamination risk is a major concern in the food supply chain, minimizing the likelihood through adherence to solid food safety practices is essential.

Understanding touchscreen gloves

The rise of digital technology across many sectors has made it necessary for workers to interact with touch screen devices such as smartphones and tablets. An overwhelming number of workplace hand injuries occur because staff remove – or entirely fail to don – adequate protection solutions.

The importance of impact protection

Impact injuries leading to crush, pinching or cut penetration subsequently result in a range of conditions from bruising to bone fracture, nerve damage and in extreme cases, amputation. 


How to select the right chemical body protection

Every workplace is different and presents its own specific set of risks where worker contact with some chemical types may be unavoidable. To determine the most appropriate chemical protective clothing choice, a thorough hazard assessment must be undertaken.

How to manage heat exposure

Heat exposure is not limited to outdoor environments, with indoor locations also posing significant risk when workers are confined to poorly ventilated areas, or heat producting settings such as kitchens, foundries, laundries or chemical plants.

Hand protection for ESD

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects. It is an issue in workplaces that incorporate sensitive electronic equipment and parts. 


Electric vehicle hazards

In using energy storage systems such as lithiumion batteries, these vehicles present a set of safety risks that necessitate the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) designed to perform against chemical, electrical, and thermal hazards.

Touchscreen compatible hand protection

The rise of digital technology in the industrial sector has created a new challenge for safety managers, as machine operation and other activities like data input, schedule maintenance and ordering increasingly requires workers to interact with touch screens including smart phones and tablets.
