Handy Glove Guide

Hands are an important tool in science.  Protecting them so you can safely work in the lab is important.

Science often involves being around chemicals, sharps, scalpels, boxes, metal, liquid nitrogen tanks, and more that can be damaging to exposed hands.

Enviro Tech put together this guide matching glove material and their advantageous and disadvantageous shielding properties.

Gloves are only one part of being safe and responsible in the lab, of course (wear all of your PPE!).

The primary tool of staying safe is scientists’ own brains working to develop protocols to address and solve problems that might arise to keep the entire team as safe as possible as progress is made.
