We usually use Disposable gloves in approximately four ways.
Medical gloves are examples of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer and/or the patient from the spread of infection or illness during medical procedures and examinations. Medical gloves are one part of an infection-control strategy.The common medical gloves are Nitrile Gloves and Latex Gloves.
There currently are no requirements for glove use in food service establishments, but, a “no bare hands” policy is recommended for handling ready-to-eat foods (e.g. sandwiches, salads). Gloves and utensils (such as tongs) can be used to minimize bare hand contact of food.The common food-use gloves would be Polytheylene Gloves and Vinyl Gloves.
Apart from the medical industry, disposable gloves are gaining importance in various other applications such as handling harsh chemicals, metal scrap, automotive fluids, greases, and cleaning.We would recommend Nitrile Gloves for industrial use.
We also use disposable gloves in our day-to-day home activities. Disposable gloves are worn when cleaning the house. You can also wear disposable gloves when gardening. Disposable gloves for home use can be of any color. Black nitrile globes are especially nice for gardening and other household chores.In kitchen,you can choose the right kind of disposable gloves depending on the tasks you are doing.
However,you should always inspect your home safety gloves before using them. Check them for any tears, punctures, fractures, cracks etc to avoid exposure to various hazards when wearing the gloves.
The efficacy of gloves in preventing contamination of health-care workers’ hands and helping to reduce transmission of pathogens in health care has been confirmed in several clinical studies. Nevertheless, health-care workers should be informed that gloves do not provide complete protection against hand contamination. Pathogens may gain access to the caregivers’ hands via small defects in gloves or by contamination of the hands during glove removal. Hand hygiene by rubbing or washing remains the basic to guarantee hand decontamination after glove removal.
