Top 4 Complaints About Wearing Gloves (and How to Overcome Them)

by Julie on February 4, 2015

Comments (0)

Gloves are the front-line protection for the hands. Proper glove usage can reduce or eliminate injuries due to heat, cold, pinching, slicing and punctures.

If gloves are not being worn, they cannot do their job. Yet we’ve all seen it – pairs of gloves lay discarded on top of a machine as workers get their hands banged, bruised and sliced. Why is this?

Here are some of the main complaints about wearing safety gloves and ways to address them:


1. Gloves Are for Girls

Well, this is actually true. Gloves are also for boys. And women. And men. So let’s not be ridiculous. ‘Nuff said.


2. These Gloves are Too Hot and Make My Hands Sweat

When working in a high temperature (or low temperature) environment, this can be a common complaint. Gloves that keep workers hands too warm will cause them to sweat. If the gloves are made of a material on the inside that holds the sweat against the skin, this can lead to an uncomfortable work day.

Many types of work gloves are made of materials, such as HPPE or nylon, that either breathe well or wick moisture away from the hands. The TenActiv™ Cut-Resistant Anti-Impact Glove made with Micropore Nitrile Grip is a great solution to this problem. It also boasts an ANSI A7 cut resistance too!


3. These Gloves are Too Bulky and I Can’t Do My Work


When working with hand tools or in situations where fine work might be required, this can be a common complaint. Pointing out what NASA astronauts can do with gloves that are usable in space will probably not endear yourself to your workers.

Instead, investigate lightweight but strong materials. Innovations in yarn technology have completely changed what is available on the market. Composite knit gloves with Kevlar® are a perfect example of a glove that can provide maximum protection while keeping the bulk of the glove down. A good rule of thumb for a general purpose glove/high dexterity glove, is you should be able to pick up a quarter without too much trouble.


4. These Gloves are Just Uncomfortable

The feel of material on skin is a very personal experience. At times, no matter what glove choice you make for your workers, some of them may not want have a particular material rubbing their skin. It just makes them uncomfortable.


A good way to mitigate this problem is to trial several different styles and sizes of gloves, and get workers’ feedback.  This way, workers can choose what feels best to them and feel ownership of their PPE. Take advantage of our Sample Program and trail different gloves to find the right fit for your workers.

What are some common complaints you’ve experienced – and how do you overcome them?
