2. Wearing the incorrect eye protection
Safety and protection is enhanced when you have the right glove for the right application. The following is a list of gloves and their appropriate application,
according to the National Safety Council:
These can keep hands clean and protect against abrasions, but may not be strong enough to handle work with rough or sharp materials.
This type of glove provides superior grip and extra protection compared to plain cotton gloves.
These types of glove can be used when cleaning or working with oils, solvents and other chemicals.
These should be used when welding, as the leather can resist sparks and moderate heat. The risk of cuts and abrasions also can be minimized by wearing leather gloves.
These gloves are recommended for welding, furnace and foundry work, as they provide reflective and insulating protection.
These have a wide variety of industrial applications. They are cut- and abrasion-resistant and provide protection against both heat and cold.
This type of glove can provide protection against water solutions or acids, alkalis, salts, and ketones.
