Protect Your Hands From Chemical Injuries With SHOWA Gloves
Chemical injuries can occur in almost any industry and increase both health risks and costs.
The Risks Of Chemicals In The Workplace
Chemicals and abrasive solvents are used by billions of people worldwide. According to Environmental Science & Technology, there are more than 350.000 chemicals and chemical mixtures in the world, registered for commercial production and use. Workers who are in contact with chemicals, hazardous substances, and gases – even simple cleaning detergents – are putting their hands at risk.
While chemical injuries occur more frequently in occupations where chemicals are manufactured, they also happen in other high-risk industries such as mining, painting, construction, oil & gas healthcare, warehousing, transportation, agriculture, and welding. Some of the injuries happen when workers are unintentionally exposed to seemingly non-harmful solutions or gases over long periods of time.
That’s because chemical risks don’t stop at the surface. Removing them requires the proper attention, up-to-date knowledge, and the right protective measures.
