Why emphasize that you must wear safety gloves?

The hand is an important part of the human body and the most important "tool" for people to engage in various production activities. In a certain sense, it can be said that human hands created the world. However, due to various reasons, people have not seriously protected their hands in production activities, resulting in the highest proportion of hand injuries in various industrial accidents.

Among all kinds of industrial accidents, the proportion of hands injured is the highest. In order to avoid hand injuries, targeted protective gloves should be selected. In recent years, the protective gloves industry has continued to develop, and the protective functions of cut-resistant gloves, wear-resistant gloves, high-temperature resistant gloves, and anti-static gloves produced with new materials are constantly improving.

Hand injuries are generally divided into four categories: mechanical injuries, physical injuries, chemical injuries and biological infection injuries. Among them, mechanical injuries such as impact, cutting, crushing, acupuncture, and vibration are the most common. Among the physical injuries, the consequences of high-temperature scald, low-temperature frostbite, electric shock and electromagnetic and ionizing radiation injuries are the most serious; chemical injury refers to the hands being exposed to chemical substances such as acid-base solutions or chemical agents that are irritating to the skin Injury caused by biological infection injury refers to the skin and wounds of the hands are eroded and infected by microorganisms such as bacteria specific to the workplace, resulting in damage to human tissues and organs.

There are many types of protective gloves, which are divided according to protective functions. They include general protective gloves, waterproof gloves, cold-proof gloves, electric heating gloves, gas-proof gloves, oil-resistant gloves, acid-resistant (alkali) gloves, live working insulated gloves, cut-resistant gloves, and mechanical damage Gloves, anti-puncture gloves, anti-vibration gloves, welding gloves, anti-static gloves, fire-retardant gloves, etc.
