If there was ever an industry that demanded making hand protection a priority, it is manufacturing.
From working with machinery to encountering chemicals and hazardous materials to protecting products from contamination, gloves factor into just about any scenario that involves making things. Many jobs require specialty protection like extra-thick neoprene, cut-proof, or “armored” and padded work gloves, but just about everyone needs some degree of hand safety.
AMMEX’s Gloveworks Nitrile with Raised Diamond Texture suite, in orange, green, black, or royal blue, are tremendous all-around gloves for manufacturing environments. At 8 or 6 mils thick, with aggressive texture that channels away liquids to facilitate the best grip in the business, these gloves are perfect for everybody on the facility floor.
The nitrile hit parade marches on
Another all-around glove that fits the bill for most general duties is Gloveworks Industrial Black Nitrile (GPNB). At 5 mils, it delivers protection from a wide variety of solvents, oils, petroleum products, and some corrosives. It is also noted for excellent resistance to cuts, snags, punctures, and abrasions.
Working in manufacturing requires employees to carefully monitor everything they do in order to ensure the quality of their products. They also must ensure they are taking precautions to prevent injuries in the workplace. Among the most common injuries are cuts, lacerations, and burns, both from handling products and working with large machinery.
It doesn’t matter what type of manufacturing your clients do—having the right protection is vital to the all-important balance between productivity and safety. Whether workers are on the production line, are repair techs who service the machinery, work as assemblers and fabricators, or enforce quality control standards, employee hand protection is a central consideration for any company.
Disregard of safety can get expensive
Considering that they need the best protection their company can give them, how do you help the buyer balance cost with safety? And how do they ensure that employees will wear what you sell them?
The cost argument is fairly simple. Does the customer want to spend a couple hundred bucks on a case of gloves, or the average hand injury claim of $6,000? And let’s not forget time missed while recovering from said expensive injury. Even the best disposable gloves won’t prevent all injuries, but they do substantially reduce risk.
As for employee compliance: Not everybody wants to wear single-use gloves on the job. Nitrile, with its high degree of comfort, gives them a great reason to glove up, and the added grip just feels great when holding on to tools.
