  • Heavy duty tasks

At Protec, our builders’ grip gloves are suitable for all types of construction work, providing versatile protection for a wide range of tasks.

 

Employer responsibilities

The construction industry comes with a wide range of health and safety risks, and employers therefore have a number of responsibilities, including:

  • Providing PPE equipment such as gloves for employees to use free of charge
  • Providing training to ensure that employees understand the importance of PPE equipment, and that they know when items such as gloves should be worn
  • Replacing protective equipment as and when necessary
  • Ensuring that all protective equipment carries the required CE safety mark, to meet with Personal Protective Equipment Regulations

 

Hand Protection Regulations

As with all protective equipment, there are some regulations that you need to be aware of in relation to hand protection, including:

  • Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (2002) – According to these regulations, employers have a responsibility to provide PPE equipment such as gloves to protect workers’ safety, as well as replacing them when needed.
  • EN 420 – This European standard lays out the requirements protective gloves must meet in order to be deemed fit for purpose.

At Protec Direct, all of our builders’ grip gloves conform with relevant legislation, so when you buy with us you can rest assured that you’re meeting the required standards.
