• Protect Yourself Against Hazardous Chemicals
Over a billion workers risk lives and livelihoods due to occupational chemical exposure. Workers around the world are facing another major global health crisis after a recent report published by the International Labour Organization (ILO) sent shockwaves across the chemical industry.*

The report concluded that in the past year, over a billion workers were exposed to hazardous substances including pollutants, dusts, chemicals, vapours and fumes in their working environment, which has put them at serious risk of injury or even death.

With more than 60 million registered chemicals available today, selecting the right hand and body protection is a complex task. An understanding of the different types of materials or polymers that make up these gloves will simplify the selection process. For example, latex offers a high degree of dexterity and elasticity but performs poorly against oils and greases. Nitrile, on the other hand, provides excellent resistance to puncture and abrasion, but it is not recommended for use with ketones or organic solvents.
With a database of more than 25,000 chemicals, Ansell can generate a personalized chemical permeation report to help you identify the most appropriate solution that best fits your needs. The report will include glove recommendations, permeation times (in minutes) and breakthrough times based on the chemicals that you work with to ensure the glove wearer is protected.

For the month of July, Ansell will be running a prize draw exclusively with Bunzl. Win one of three Nespresso coffee machines when you submit your chemical details. All you need to do is fill in your details and let us know what chemicals your work with or upload your Safety Data Sheets HERE.
