When it comes to hand protection there are 3 important choices to make.
Firstly, your hands are one of your most valuable assets so if there’s a tough job ahead make sure you are using work gloves. Chemicals, abrasion and hazards can all result in damage and injury to bare hands.
Secondly, match your glove to the requirements of your job. There are many different types of both disposable and non-disposable work gloves and it is becoming increasingly important to understand the material composition, resistance to hazards, and overall performance of the glove for a particular job. So make sure you choose a glove that meets the exact needs of your job including its resistance to harmful substances.
And finally one size doesn’t fit all. A reputable supplier of work gloves will offer the product in a range of sizes. Having a glove that fits correctly will not only prolong the lifetime of the glove but also ensure that your hands have maximum dexterity and comfort for the job. If a worker’s glove is a poor fit or discomfort is apparent then both PPE and health and safety guidelines are not being followed. Proper sizing is essential because workers will often risk working bare-handed rather than wear gloves that get in the way of the job.
And that’s where Fortress Distribution Ltd is here to give you a helping hand, quite literally. Our range of products from US leading brand Black Mamba, offers a glove to meet your every need. Because delivering ultimate hand protection for workers in tough jobs is what we do!
