Employees at this Oilfield Facility Use Superior Glove® to Remain Injury-Free

At Superior Glove®, our focus is on our customers — the ones who actually wear the gloves everyday, and whose safety and livelihood are essentially resting in our hands. Our customers trust us. We’ve earned that trust by putting our research dollars and time into developing products that solve issues in the various industries we serve. We don’t want to make gloves that suit your needs. We want to make gloves that feel good on your hands, allow you to work easily and more efficiently, and most of all – we want to make gloves that allow you to go home uninjured at the end of each work day.

This customer success story is a testament to our commitment. It’s stories like these that motivate us to work harder, design better, and continue adapting to our customers’ needs.

Success Snapshot
• Reduced monthly hand injuries from four to ZERO
• Saved 45% on bottom line
• Increased productivity and worker morale

 

The Challenge

Working in the Oil and Gas industry, the employees at the company featured in this testimonial were already accustomed to hard labor and arduous tasks; because of this, their hand protection selections play a crucial role within their workplace. Before using Superior Glove® products, the company was spending $3/pair for leather work gloves, and replacing them almost daily — amounting to costs between $2,000 – $3,000 per month! In spite of the large amount of money the company was spending on gloves, workers were getting a lot of pinch points, puncture wounds, cuts, and abrasions. As hand injuries became more frequent and costly, it was time to research other glove options: as a result, the Health and Safety Engineering Specialist, Christopher, began his quest to find gloves suitable to protect his workers from the grave risks they encountered daily.

The Solution

Christopher T. said it didn’t take long before his research led him to find Superior Glove’s MXVSB anti-impact gloves. He says they were the “best out of any other gloves. The others didn’t perform as well and they cost twice the amount.” The close relationship that started immediately with the Superior Glove® Sales Representative was another thing that Christopher said made his job easier: “The thing I like about working with Superior is they really care about finding ways to fix the problem. That stood out to me.”

Oil & Gas Industry Work Gloves

Christopher also shared how much these gloves changed the working life at his place of employment. Only a month after making the switch, he received over 20 suggestion cards from his team, who shared stories of instances where our gloves saved their hands. Recounting a particularly frightening incident, he told us how these gloves saved a man’s hand from bring crushed. As workers were rolling a piece of pipe on the table, it caught one person’s hand between the rack. The pipe weighs 2,800 lbs. “He had Superior gloves on. We took the gloves off; he had no bruising, no broken bones, no torn ligaments. He walked away. Had he not had your gloves on, it would have changed everything. His injury, plus the $15,000 to $20,000 to fix his hand, as well as the lost time of up to 20 weeks off work… Worker morale… The gloves work. They work.”

The best part, Christopher said, was the dramatic drop in their injury rating. They previously suffered 3-4 hand injuries per month. Since switching to Superior gloves, they have had none. “Workers feel more confident doing their jobs. I’m glad I found a product that really works.” Both Superior Glove and the hand protection products we offer were the perfect fit for their company’s demanding applications.

“When people ask me, I don’t hesitate. I tell them I use Superior Glove®.
I tell them they’re a good company, and they have a product that really works.” – Christopher T., HSE Specialist
