Ask These 4 Questions When Choosing Farming Gloves

by Joe Geng on June 22, 2016

Comments (0)


Workers in the agriculture industry face all sorts of hazards, from mechanical and chemical dangers to enduring the harsh outdoor elements. According to OSHA, 243 farmers suffer a lost-time work injury every day. As many as 5% of these injuries result in a permanent disability or impairment. Accident prevention is better than accident rehabilitation. By asking these questions, you’ll be able to select the farming gloves to protect you best.

Farm agriculture safety gloves

 

1. Is Cut, Puncture, or Abrasion Resistance Needed?

Some agricultural jobs pose a significant risk of tissue and skin damage from cuts, abrasions, and puncture hazards. These dangers are found in handling plant material, while others come from using equipment and tools.

General purpose gloves for agriculture offer a nice balance of protection and dexterity. Many our gloves provide medium to high cut, puncture, and abrasion resistance. The amount of protection you need will depend on the risks of the job, and the severity of the hazards.

If you’re looking for something in the mid-range of protection, the S13HVLX  is the glove for you. It combines excellent grip with optimal dexterity, making this a well-rounded glove. Their green color will match your lush surroundings, and their ergonomic shape makes them comfortable to wear for hours on end. These gloves are excellent for when you’re out in the field.

2. Do I Need Protection Against Chemicals?

Pesticides, poisonous plants, and many other chemicals like fuels, put workers at risk of allergic reactions, chemical burns, and even illness.There’s a significant risk of exposure to these hazards in the agricultural industry. It is imperative to make sure that you’re wearing the right chemical-resistant gloves.

Superior Glove offers a large selection of nitrile gloves that form a protective barrier between hands and hazards. The NIF3018 are an excellent choice, since nitrile is three times stronger than latex, these gloves provide high resistance to fuels and oils.

3. Do I Need Dexterity to Help Me Get the Job Done?

Accident prevention also involves maintaining a range of hand motion while you’re on the job. Some tasks require more dexterity than others. For other jobs, the opposite is true, protection against cuts and other hazards need to take priority over dexterity. It all depends on the dangers that are associated with your role and your workplace.

If you’re looking for a pair of lightweight gloves that offer great dexterity, our Clutch Gear® mechanics gloves are form-fitting, breathable, and flexible. They’ll keep your hands safe while you’re on the job. All the gloves in our Dexterity® line offer excellent grip and breathable fabric for all-day comfort and protection.

 

4. Will These Gloves Protect My Hands from the Elements?

Winter and summer hazards differ, they can both put workers in extreme situations. In cold weather, your range of motion can be impaired if your hands get too cold, and moisture can amplify that effect. Frostbite is also a high risk in extreme temperatures. No need to worry, we have many options for when the weather turns bitter cold, too. Our 378GKTA are great for the outdoor conditions, they’re durable and provide outstanding puncture resistance.
