PPE Selection –Chemical Gloves
Chemical resistant gloves, as a last resort, are often used to protect workers from contacting hazardous materials in the workplace. But do you wear right gloves for chemicals you are handling?
How to select proper chemical gloves:
•Step 1: Assess the type of exposure and the nature of the hazards (e.gchemical type. incidental contact vs. extended exposure, toxicity)
•Step 2: Check the exposure controls & Personal Protection section in SDS for recommended chemical gloves (i.e., glove materials), and/or contact Safety Advisor/Industrial Hygiene for recommendations
•Step 3: Prior to use, check the gloves for damage, previous contamination or signs of degradation
•Step 4: Dispose of used or damaged gloves per the site waste management program or ensure reusable gloves are cleaned, inspected and stored appropriately for next use.
