Disposable Work Gloves

Hand protection is a must in the workplace. They’re a vulnerable part of the human body – the skin itself is sensitive to different materials, chemicals, and temperatures.

 

Disposable work gloves are designed to be thrown away after a single use, but they can help stop -

 

  • Lacerations and cuts

  • Punctures

  • Burns

  • Skin irritation

 

With many different materials and styles available, you can pick the most suitable option for the task you need them for. For extra protection, you can also pair them with other guards and arm coverings.

PPE disposable Gloves

In sectors like HealthcarePPE there’s little time when disposable gloves aren’t used. Nurses, doctors, surgeons, hospital porters and cleaning staff – they all wear them.

 

Think about the type of tasks that the gloves will be used for. In hospitality, vinyl gloves are used for food handling, whereas latex are more appropriate for cleaning.

 

Furthermore, disposable gloves are usually thinner than other types. This flexibility makes them useful when ease of movement and dexterity’s needed.
