Project Sales Corp – Gloves Selection Chart1When Project Sales Corp brought in the KONG Glove to India in 2009, it was the firstcompany to market a glove that would be a mandated requirement in the oilfield industry.Most glove guidelines are being re-written. One thing is clear from the new guidelines followedby global oil and gas companies - Improved-technology impact resistant gloves (examples:KONG, GGT5, Oil Rigger HD, etc.) must be used for daily routine tasks.The use of gloves will not prevent all hand injuries; the primary focus should always be toeliminate hand exposure to pinch points, crush points, impact zones, etc.Does your company have a task specific Glove Policy?Jobs MUST be evaluated to determine what specific hand protection is required. Appropriategloves (i.e., impact resistant, cut resistant, electrical resistant, etc.) for the specific job taskshould be worn until that task is completed.Project Sales Corp has spent several years researching the best options for the new improvedtechnology impact gloves and brings in the finest choices those are approved by major oil andgas companies.Attached is a copy of our gloves selection chart for your reference.By the way, did you know about our new Glove Clips?When changing from gloves used for daily routine tasks, consideration shouldbe given to using break-away glove clips to ensure that other appropriate gloves(e.g. specialty or gloves used for greater dexterity) are available at all times.To know more:Sarika RathiProduct Manager – HSEProject Sales CorpKakinada | Vizag | MumbaiMobile: +91-9821181084Email: Sarika@projectsalescorp.com
