Gloves & PPE
Gloves have grown into one of the most important pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) that workers may wear. They are frequently used to protect our hands from cuts and scratches. Specialized gloves protect us from both wounds and poisons or pollution. Gloves, however, are much more than that: because of great new designs and materials, they really help us work faster and better.
In general, most PPE is intended to be used just once and by one person before being discarded. Some varieties of elastomeric respirator masks and protective eyewear, such as goggles, may be reused if the user follows the cleaning techniques specified on the product labeling, according to FDA.
