While working in a chemical plant, dealing with hazardous substances is a daily routine. Employees are exposed to hazards from explosion risks or carcinogenic substances in harmful concentrations. Another major concern is the threat of oxygen deficiency in these areas. Use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is always the last line of defence and not regarded as an alternative to other suitable control measures necessary at chemical plants. However, PPE should provide adequate protection against risk from hazardous chemicals to which the wearer is exposed, for the duration of the exposure, taking into account the type of work being carried out. Hand protection is of prime importance, as a result of which, safety gloves are a necessity. This a major factor driving the expansion of the global safety gloves market size.
