Hand protection is at the core of Saf-T-Gard’s history and our legacy product line.
The OSHA 29CFR 1910.138(a) general requirements standard states that employers shall select and require employees to use appropriate hand protection when employees' hands are exposed to hazards such as those from skin absorption of harmful substances, severe cuts or lacerations, severe abrasions, punctures, chemical burns, thermal burns and harmful temperature extremes.
Selecting the proper hand protection requires an analysis of the hazard and an understanding of the glove materials and manufacturing technologies available. Gloves for personal protection are designed to protect the worker from the hazards of the job. Gloves for product protection protect the product or process from contamination by the workers, such as food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing and medical applications.
Saf-T-Gard offers thousands of gloves that provide both personal protection and product/process protection. Check out our selection of general purpose gloves, mechanic's gloves, leather gloves, welding and high-heat gloves, cut-resistant gloves, metal mesh gloves, chemical-resistant gloves, electrical gloves, cold/hold insulated gloves, disposable gloves and glove accessories available in a variety of materials, constructions, colors and styles for whatever the task at hand.
Be sure to ask our safety specialists about our hand protection audits, where Saf-T-Gard partners with the world’s leading glove manufacturers. Few companies possess the hand protection experience and expertise of Saf-T-Gard.
