Gloves protection at work

There are three main reasons why companies ask employees and customers to wear gloves. 

  • To reduce the risk of contamination for employees from customers and fellow employees
  • To reduce the risk of transmission from the employees to customers
  • To provide the perception that the company is doing all it can to help keep employees and customers safe.  

However, gloves do not provide complete protection against hand contamination. COVID-19 may gain access to the hands via small defects in gloves or by contamination of the hands during glove removal. Hand hygiene by washing remains the basic to guarantee hand decontamination after glove removal.
