Why Hand Protection is Important

Our hands are one of the most important tools that we possess. We use our hands in almost every task that we undertake, which makes them important tools. Our hands are also one of the most vulnerable parts of our body. Proper hand protection helps prevent serious injuries such as cuts and burns. Safety gloves protect our hands against all kinds of hazards in the workplace. Including scratches, cuts, and wounds from abrasion. Safety gloves also offer protection when working with hazardous chemicals, protecting your hands from contamination.

Safety gloves are a very important factor in preventing workplace injuries, but they should be worn only when it is appropriate for the task that is being performed. EN 420 [3] is the safety standard for protective gloves. This standard defines the general requirements for protective gloves, including the design, size, comfort, dexterity and more.
