Why disposable gloves are indispensable?

disposable gloves

Disposable gloves are practically everywhere these days. You see them in doctor’s offices, 

restaurants, hair salons, and anywhere else that workers need clean, inexpensive hand 

protection at the ready. They might get soiled quickly, but they’re very easy to replace. 

There’s always a new pair waiting, and they don’t need laundering. For workers who need a 

protective barrier that moves easily but don’t require a high level of cut protection, 

disposable gloves are the best option.

Here are four things that disposables do that makes them indispensable:

1. They prevent cross-contamination.

Cross-contamination happens when you handle one substance and your gloves pick up its 

residue, and then you touch something else. Disposable gloves let you change hand protection 

quickly and easily when moving from one material to the next. This ensures that everything 

from your dinner to blood screenings stays clean.

2. They prevent pathogens from spreading.

Using the proper technique for removing disposable gloves adds another layer to their 

protection. Instead of just peeling them off and tossing them into the trash, leaving 

pathogens on the outside of gloves exposed, make sure you fold your gloves over onto 

themselves. That way, all of the harmful substances will stay contained within them.

3. They protect you from unknown hazards.

For this reason, disposable gloves provide conservationists and wildlife workers with a 

reliable layer of protection against the moulds, toxins, poisons and other dangerous 

substances that they might encounter outdoors. Because they’re lightweight and comfortable, 

these types of gloves stand a better chance of being worn — allowing for a high level of 

PPE compliance.

4. They won’t wear out

Their name says it all. Disposable gloves get tossed after one use — whether it’s after a 

full shift or after coming into contact with just one substance. Because they’re not 

designed for wearing again and again, they don’t have a chance to wear out. If yours is an 

industry where gloves get a workout, thicker materials help them hold up through the shift.
