Thermal Work Gloves with Foam Nitrile Palm Coat
Get better grip and warmer hands with ATA® PioNIR™ gloves. Using breakthrough fiber technology, new PIONIR-ATA ND-13 gloves actually warm your hands using near infrared (NIR) technology. Glove temperature increases as much as 18o F when you wear them in the presence of NIR rays from the sun or certain indoor lighting. The foam Nitrile palm coating improves abrasion resistance, cushioning and grip, especially useful for handling something wet or slightly oily.

  • Insulating (rubber) sleeves must also be worn if the upper arms or shoulders are within the Minimum Approach Distance to other exposed energized parts

ISEA Hand Protection Experts to Present at 2018 NSC Congress and Expo – October 23
One way the employer can protect workers against exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, is by providing and ensuring they use personal protective equipment, or PPE. Wearing appropriate PPE can significantly reduce risk, since it acts as a barrier against exposure. Employers are required to provide, clean, repair, and replace this equipment as needed, and at no cost to workers.
