In 1988, an entrepreneurial 24-year-old law student recognized the rising need for barrier protection in the United States. Fred Crosetto started AMMEX with a vision of becoming an international leader in health, hygiene, and safety.
Exam-grade gloves, often referred to as medical gloves, were originally designed for non-surgical medical procedures. They differ from industrial-grade gloves due to one factor: rigorous factory-level testing. This testing is based on acceptable quality limits (AQL) set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. An AQL limit sets a standard for how many gloves within a batch can fail testing. A low AQL (meaning a small number of defective gloves) for exam-grade gloves is necessary to ensure the glove is of a high enough quality that it can provide the proper barrier protection against extreme risks.
Did you know workers in the medical and dental industries use an average of 15 pairs of disposable gloves each day? That’s 3,960 pairs a year!
Whether they are on the front lines of a hospital emergency room, conducting health screenings for children at a local elementary school, or visiting the homebound as part of hospice care, nurses work hard to improve people’s lives every single day. AMMEX celebrates all nurses during National Nurses Week which begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, nurse pioneer, and public health advocate.
While crafting the perfect manicure or giving a relaxing foot massage, nail technicians need barrier protection to guard themselves against harsh chemicals and blood borne pathogens. When making purchasing decisions, salon owners are not only looking out for the safety of their employees, but they are also liable to regulations from the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).
Workplace safety affects all industries from the food service industry to protection against biological agents in the medical industry. Accidents and injuries in the workplace can be reduced greatly by having the proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

The Best Black Nitrile Glove for Workplace Safety
Selecting a disposable glove for workplace safety can be a complicated and intimidating process. The best disposable glove for job safety protects the user’s hands from harsh chemicals and solvents, and is selected based on how long and in what tasks the glove will be used. Furthermore, worker compliance in using personal protection equipment is often just as dependent on comfort and glove performance as it is on the protection provided by the glove. If a glove does not provide the right fit, feel, or grip, workers will often remove a glove in its entirety, exposing them to hazards. Workplace safety starts by making the correct glove selection and balancing performance, protection, comfort, and user satisfaction.
