Your hands and arms are use in just about everything you do all day long. Wear gloves to protect your hands, the gloves you need depend on the job you do and the hazard you face. Your employer will determine the hazards and provide the necessary gloves. If you work with sharp objects such as knives or with moving blades wear cut resistant gloves. If your work involves extreme hot and cold temperatures you need temperature resistant gloves. Keep in mind that chemicals can cause gloves to breakdown over time so be sure to replace gloves when needed. Inspect gloves before every use look for cuts, tears or thing on materials, replace gloves when damage or deteriorated. Throw away disposable gloves after each use.
