A brief guide to the main types of gloves available on the market.
The hand is one of the main areas of the body affected by injuries. This often happens due to the failure to use work gloves or the choice of the wrong model.
Walking into any store that sells safety equipment, you are faced with a wide selection of gloves with many types and price ranges, which can make it challenging to choose the right gloves for your employees.
To help with this, we’ve put together a quick guide to the existing types of work gloves.
THE MAIN TYPES
The fundamental point is to summarize all gloves into macro-categories, which will be four. This, in addition to making the study easier and more organized, will allow you to understand the work for which they are best suited:
- Cut-resistant gloves
- Chemical-resistant gloves
- Gloves for Light Handling
Each type of glove is specific to certain jobs and falls within a price range. The decision, however, should not be based solely on the price, as choosing a cheaper glove could result in it breaking quickly, forcing you to replace it more frequently. Ultimately, this could cost more than buying a quality product from the beginning.
The decision, however, must be made on a case-by-case basis, and to help you do this, we will explore the various categories.
