Key Hazards as per OSHA
Udyogi has a range of solutions to provide hand protection to workers working near or with machines, working with metal sheets and fine edges or glass. Though cut can happen in any body part, effective safeguarding practices could prevent the occurrence of such risks.
It is highly crucial to safeguard the point of operation by:
- Reducing the potential contact with sharp objects
- Reducing the possibility of an object falling into the moving parts of the machine
- Reducing the possibility of a worker coming in contact with shear points, unfinished or jagged edges
- Allowing lubrication of the machine without the removal of the safeguards
The hand gloves offered by Udyogi ensures safety against cuts and abrasion, thereby extending comfort to the workers without hindering their daily operations. Organisations have a range of choice between gloves designed to assist those where lower cut risks are present whilst others are more suited for those exposed to medium and high cut risks.
These gloves are tested extensively for:
- Abrasion resistance
