That is according to the US company All Safety Products, which suggests that employers that are required to provide their workers with hand protection have a number of options available to them.
It believes that firms must consider the physical working conditions and safety levels that protective gloves need to conform to.
The types of working environments and temperatures gloves will face are both said to be other important issues.
Meanwhile, the company warns that employers should keep an 'ample' supply of protective gloves in stock in case workers puncture or damage their products.
