Communicating your safety plan effectively is arguably just as important as having a plan to begin with. Without efficient communication, knowledge of risks will do nothing to mitigate them.

We host our annual #NotWithoutGloves social media contest for several reasons: to have a bit of fun with our followers and to highlight the need for disposable glove use.

Workers in the dry cleaning industry need to be particularly careful as they come into frequent contact with a harsh chemical called perchloroethylene.
