Safety gloves an essential for at-risk workersPosted on 29/11/2010
Any worker whose job involves working in a dangerous environment needs to be provided with the necessary personal protective equipment, including safety gloves, one source has stated.
A post on Lon's Article Directory noted that companies which take steps to ensure that employees are provided with the necessary equipment are far less likely to encounter problems if staff go on to suffer an injury which could have been prevented.
'Different hazardous work requires different gloves and apparel. It is practical for the company to buy such gloves and apparel that will offer protection to the employee in various situations,' the source said.
The writer added that the decision will prove to be a 'long-term investment' with maximum benefit to the employer.
Earlier this month, Derek Cartwright, director of emergency services at North West Ambulance Service, told the Lancashire Telegraph that safety gloves were an essential item for anyone attending bonfires or lighting fireworks.
