In 2008, I wrote an article about Hand Protection for ISHN (Industrial Safety & Hygiene News
), the foremost industrial safety publication for safety engineers and managers.
Surprisingly, not much has changed since I wrote this article so I thought it would be worthwhile to post it here for others looking for this type of information. This way it will be permanently archived as well.
It should be noted that this article is focused on one type of industrial work glove – Coated Gloves
– which are the most popular gloves used today in industrial and manufacturing industries.
You can link to the article at this link which is a printable PDF file: Hand Protection
By the way, if you don’t already receive ISHN, I suggest you go to their link at the top of this post and see about subscribing. It’s a good monthly periodical focused on safety products.
If anyone has any questions or need any assistance on glove advice, please feel free to contact me.
Today, I’m delighted to announce that Gloves-Online is now an authorized dealer of the DeWalt Glove Line.
Most of you are already aware of the world-renown DeWalt brand of professional high-end power tools for the construction, manufacturing and woodworking industries. The good news for you and for us is that DeWalt is making a major effort to rework their current line of mechanics and work gloves.
The other good news is that this effort is being championed by an old glove-guru friend of mine, Dan Branson. Dan was hired this past year by DeWalt to manage and develop the new glove lines and, frankly, I couldn’t be happier. I can guarantee you that you will soon see some of the best glove innovations in work gloves and I anticipate announcing them as they hit the market.
Out of curiosity, I reviewed our files and discovered that we have produced over 10 ½ tons of our bamboo gloves. That’s 21,375 US lbs. to save you time calculating. It’s not surprising if you look at our warehouse and the ocean freight shipping containers behind our loading dock.
However, the weight numbers are surprising when you pick up a pair of these lightweight but heavy duty multi-purpose utility gloves made from bamboo.
As a GO Green Glove user, you’ve made our planet greener, our air fresher, reduced landfill burden, and saved yourself some money at the same time.
Since our GO Green Glove business continues to grow, it will be interesting to see how the next three years will weigh out.
We just received our latest shipment of our popular GO Greens® Bamboo Gloves and things have certainly changed.
As many of you already know, the GO Greens Bamboo Gloves
were designed to be the best light weight general utility coated work glove on the market. And, be the only environmental friendly work glove, too boot. Mission accomplished.
What we didn’t anticipate is that our warehouse manager had to recruit our office staff to help unload 4 tons of the GO Greens last week.
So much for light weight work gloves.
