Why disposable gloves are indispensable?
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
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.
