Do Your Glove Manufacturer and Supplier Have This Kind of Relationship? Because They Should

by Frank MacDonald on May 10, 2017

Of any threat that workers encounter on a daily basis, hypodermic needles rank near the top. The risk of damaging your skin from a needle puncture is bad enough, but add contracting a blood-borne pathogen like HIV on top of that, it becomes an awful situation. In these situations, double-gloving is not good enough.

Kirk Peakman, account manager for Acklands-Grainger, with the help of Superior Glove’s territory manager, Darren Phillips, recently had to solve that exact problem.

(Read Kirk’s full case study by clicking the image below!)

The Challenge:

Workers at a local hospital in Saskatchewan were finding used, uncapped hypodermic needles around the hospital — in garbage cans, bedding and washrooms. Blood-borne pathogens is always a risk with used needles, but the hospital is located a high-risk region for HIV. The hospital’s Environmental Health and Safety committee needed to find a solution that would keep a variety of workers safe from needle sticks without limiting their dexterity. The ability for workers to easily move their hands in the glove was critical because people won’t wear something that slows down their workday.

 

The Process:

After discussing the issues with the hospital’s purchasing clerk and manager of operations, Kirk collected glove options from several manufacturers, including Superior Glove. In total, Kirk sent 14 gloves for the hospital to review. The committee narrowed their search down to five gloves based on characteristics like:

  • Flexibility
  • Comfort
  • Puncture protection
  • Ability to complete jobs

Our territory manager, Darren, worked closely with Kirk to make sure that we found the best option that would meet their criteria and their budget.


The Solution:

The glove needed to be worn by a variety of workers, from the janitorial staff emptying garages to the nurses cleaning rooms.

The committee decided that our Clutch Gear® Hi-Viz Mechanics Glove Fully Lined with Punkban™ was the best choice because it gave workers a balance of protection and dexterity.

What assisted in the success was the strong relationship between Superior Glove and Acklands-Grainger. The two companies kept communication lines open to make sure that the hospital was provided with a product that would effectively protect employees without limiting hand movement. When everyone is working together with the best interest of the customer in mind, it’s a recipe for success.
