Guide to glove selection published

Honeywell has published the second in its two-part series of eGuides designed to help health and safety professionals select the right chemical protective gloves. ‘A Guide to Selecting Chemical Protective Gloves – Part 2’ looks specifically at three key considerations for glove selection - task, environment and fit - and outlines steps that can be taken to help simplify the selection process.

“Selecting protective gloves for applications where chemicals are involved can be a challenge,” said Stéphanie Quilliet, strategic product leader-EMEA for head and body products at Honeywell Industrial Safety. “Not providing adequate protection puts workers at risk, but if the protection is over-specified for the application, workers might be tempted to remove their gloves so that they can perform their tasks efficiently, leaving them exposed to injury. Our two eGuides on this topic provide safety professionals with clear, expert, practical advice to help them navigate all of these considerations with confidence.”
