Safety gloves – additional information

When working, our hands are constantly in direct contact with the objects and materials at our workplace, so it is important to find the right occupational glove for the corresponding hazardous situation. The requirements for suitable occupational gloves change completely depending on whether your employees are doing delicate precision work or are operating heavy machinery, whether they are working in dry areas or wet or oily environments, whether they will come into contact with chemicals or are exposed to mechanical risks.
