All Safety Products will distribute a complete range of disposable gloves for improved hand protection & employee safety. When employers are required to provide hand protection to employees in accordance with OSHA Health & Safety USDA, or FDA regulations, there are many choices of disposable gloves.
When buying and selecting the right disposable glove, consider the following hand protection issues:
1. Disposable glove unit price: Buying in bulk reduces glove unit price and shipping costs per glove. Gloves generally have long shelf life. Ambidextrous gloves also have lower unit costs.
2. Physical working conditions & level of protection required of the glove: The environment, ambient temperature, presence of oils, liquids and gases, level of abrasion or possibilities of puncture are important hand protection issues.
3. Rate of glove replacement: Calculate the number of gloves required by worker in a specific time period. Always change gloves if they get ripped, torn or contaminated. Keep an ample supply in stock.
4. Disposable glove material types: Natural Rubber Latex (NRL), Vinyl, Nitrile, Powdered, Powder Free. Note that if you buy disposable latex gloves, some employees may be allergic to the Latex. You should always have an alternative vinyl or nitrile disposable glove available.
Disposable food preparation gloves need to conform to USDA, FDA & State Food Codes. The food codes require that food employees not contact exposed ready-to-eat foods, mandating use of disposable gloves. Food employees are also expected to minimize contact with exposed food that is not considered ready-to-eat through use of disposable gloves.
Disposable examination gloves are used extensively in medical applications where gloves come into contact with bodily fluids. The disposable gloves protect patients and public as well as the employee. Recently, in an effort to help control the spread of the Avian Flu and Swine Flu virus (H1N1), the US Center for Disease Control, in partnership with other federal agencies, issued recommendations for disposable gloves when examining patients, and for airline crews.
