Protect Your Hands – Gloves
- Inspect your gloves prior to use
- Dirty or damaged gloves / PPE can cause injuries
- Know the performance characteristics of the gloves you are wearing.
- Store gloves in a clean area outside of fume hoods and away from equipment that could potentially contaminate them.
- Always remove gloves before touching common use items such as phones, doorknobs and computers. This will prevent contamination of unprotected individuals.
