Work Gloves

Safety Work gloves give protection to your most important tools- your hands. Hand injury at work is still a major issue, with arm and hand injuries accounting for 41% of non-fatal accidents. Cuts, Puncture and Burns are the most common hand and arm injuries, mainly due to a lack of P.P.E. in the form of hand and arm protection, and to a lack of training, or proper assessment of what safety hand protection is needed. Most safety gloves and arm protection undergo rigorous testing to UK, European or American standards.
