Safety gloves a good idea on Bonfire Night

People hoping to stay safe this evening while visiting a bonfire should wear personal protective equipment to ensure the night goes without a hitch.

That is the advice being issued by Derek Cartwright, director of emergency services at North West Ambulance Service, who told the Lancashire Telegraph that this time of the year is quickly becoming as busy as the festive period for accidents, meaning extra caution is needed.

'Ideally, people should attend a professionally organised public display, but if you are having your own fireworks party then make sure safety is a priority, prepare in advance and get a torch, a bucket of water, eye protection and gloves,' he advised.

Mr Cartwright pointed out that, although watching fireworks is fun, they are explosives and burn at high temperatures, so they need careful handling and storage.

Meanwhile, the Health and Safety Executive recently said that workers can help to 'drastically' reduce their chances of developing skin disease by wearing safety gloves and other personal protective equipment.
