Hand Protection (CHEM)

Hand Protection (Chemical Protective Gloves). The level of hand protection is selected based upon the hazard. This can range from barrier creams to full gauntlet rubber gloves. Chemical-resistant gloves are made of materials tested to ensure the chemical does not penetrate or damage the glove material during prolonged exposure. Gloves are selected according to the material being used and the duration of exposure.
