PROTECT YOUR HANDS FROM CROSS-CONTAMINATION
When there are a variety of hazards in the workplace, choose SHOWA single-use gloves.
The Risks Of Cross-contamination
In just about any job, you interact with substances, bacteria, and viruses throughout the day. In most cases, it’s simply unavoidable. However, there are certain jobs in which the use of heavy-duty gloves is a bit much. Using single-use gloves is a much more appropriate option because you can use them for a single purpose and discard them before moving on to your next task.
When handling food, you should always swap out gloves when working with different foods. For example, if you are cutting chicken, it is smart to wear a set of gloves to protect yourself from potential bacteria found on raw meat. Before you move on from the chicken, it is vital that you switch to a new set of single-use gloves so you do not risk carrying bacteria over to your next station.
The same can be said for auto mechanics who must move between cars. In this case, instead of protecting yourself from the spread of potential bacteria, you’re protecting yourself from potentially hazardous chemical exposure. Using single-use gloves in this scenario prevents you from spreading the chemicals and compounds to your tools and other workstations.
Cross contamination can also occur in the following situations:
- Bacterial/viral contamination for first responders or hospital staff working with sick patients.
- Laboratory staff working with various contaminants that could be irritating to the skin or otherwise harmful.
Whatever you may need protection from, SHOWA glove manufacturer offers single-use gloves perfect for any workplace setting.
