No thanks, I don't want to prevent hand injuries.
In the spirit of Halloween, I’ve been binge-watching horror movies all week and there’s something that’s bugging me.
No, it’s not the over-acting or the flawed logic of the characters (WHY WOULD YOU RUN UPSTAIRS?!) It’s the fact that there isn’t a single horror movie monster that practices proper hand safety.
70% of workplace hand injuries occurred because workers weren’t wearing work gloves and a movie monster isn’t any different. Safety first, guys. Today we’re going to look at gloves to keep our favorite villains safe.
A father learns the hard way that his son can’t follow three simple rules for pet care.
The mogwai — pictured above — are adorably harmless creatures assuming all rules are followed. However, feed one after midnight and that ball of fur turns into a terrifying hellbeast that multiplies when exposed to water. The only defense against one at that point is bright lights (hint, hint).

Yard worker mistakes teenagers for trees due to poor lighting in work area, (Texas) chainsaw massacre ensues.
Leatherface is an enigma: he’s a bit of a loner who doesn’t talk much, yet he’s a total people person (that’s the PR term for cannibal).
For a lumbering oaf, he’s a crafty fella (that’s the PR term for makes masks out of skin) and lumberjack hobbyist (that’s the PR term for a chainsaw massacre-er ).

It doesn’t matter who’s wielding it, chainsaws are dangerous. Practicing safe operation of one is best, but a protective glove isn’t a bad second line of defense.
Camp cook turned murderer reminds teens why Friday the 13th is unlucky.
Mrs. Voorhees is the head chef at Crystal Lake but after the tragic death of her son, she’s driven mad and decides to exact vengeance on the counselors who didn’t save him. Maybe Mrs. Voorhees should pop on some safety glasses while carrying out her eye-for-an-eye brand of justice.

Mrs. Voorhees hands would have been well protected when working in any high stress environment… like a kitchen.

Whether you’re turning wrenches or bashing buildings, back of hand protection is a necessity. It’s also important to make sure your glove fits properly. If you aren’t sure what sized glove you should be wearing, check out our sizing chart.
Horror movie monsters like Mrs. Voorhees and Leatherface aren’t going to wear safety gear, no matter how many blogs I write about it, because they are crazy and aren’t easily harmed. Unlike you and me, who can easily be harmed and would be crazy not to wear gloves!
Happy Halloween from everyone at Superior Glove!
