Marigold challenges industry to 'Glove Up'

Hand and arm protection specialist Marigold Industrial is challenging those with responsibility for health and safety in the workplace to beat the clock and equip ‘virtual’ staff with the right gloves for the job with a brand new online game.

‘Glove Up’ - - sees players pit their skills on three levels of difficulty trying to equip virtual members of staff with a pair of gloves from the company’s new cut resistant Puretough P series, which features the new Indicator System.

When a level has been completed players are asked a question which, if answered correctly, will see the player move on to the challenge of the next level.

Running from October to the end of 2011, players will be ranked by their scores, and the person with the highest score at the end of the year will take the first prize of a trip to Portugal for two people.

Other prizes available for high scorers will include an iPod Nano, a set of mobile speakers and, for the highest weekly, a USB stick.

“We are delighted with the way Glove Up has been developed and hope as many people as possible take the time to play and see how they score,” said Melinda Ferrari of Marigold Industrial Ltd. “It is meant to be enjoyable, but there is still a message underlying the game - one of the importance of ensuring that workers are equipped with the right gloves for the job - especially when dealing with cut hazards. Glove Up has been produced in a range of European languages and the scores will be listed on a leaders board so players will be able to see who is at the top and how many points are needed to be scored to be in with a chance of the taking one of the prizes.”
