In the chemical industry, workers are in daily contact with various hazardous substances. Hand protection is essential as exposure to chemicals can lead to risks of irritation, noxiousness or allergenicity or, worse still, to carcinogenic, mutagenic and/or toxic risks. Fluids can penetrate into the blood through the skin and then be conveyed to the nervous system, the brain, the liver, the kidneys or other vital organs, causing considerable damage. In addition, the operator’s hands face mechanical risks related to all kinds of handling and carrying tasks.
Extended range of solutions
As the world leader in hand protection, Ansell offers the chemical industry a comprehensive range of gloves and sleeves to protect workers against these risks. As no single material can resist all dangerous substances and the exposure can happen through different ways - immersion or splashes -, we offer disposable or reusable products with a variety of durable materials, thicknesses, manufacturing processes and cuff lengths.
In our manufacturing process we have a special focus on occupational ergonomics; this allows the worker to do his/her job with maximal dexterity and minimal hand fatigue.
Ansell offers the chemical industry a high-value service. At your request, our sales specialists work alongside your plant personnel to determine each workstation’s requirements and then make expert recommendations to ensure:
