The Importance of Good Quality Gloves for Chemical Protection

Back in old days, industrial workers were less likely to wear quality chemical protection gloves when they were conducting chemical handling in the industry.

Workers who have low safety awareness has caused an increase in the chemical incident to happen.

The Importance of Wearing Quality Chemical Protection Gloves in Industrial and Household Settings:

Based on some study scenarios, there are about 15,700 workers suffer from chemical burns in the workplace annually. In retail industries, about 2,600 workers suffer from chemical burns.

In the household, human tends to expose to corrosive chemicals as well when doing household work.

This has created a huge alert that wearing safety protective gear is a must to protect them from hazardous environments.

Below are some of the categories of acids and bases that are commonly handled in industries and households.
