Contamination remains the main source of potential risk to rescuers in the workplace. It is essential to have gloves on hand, and especially to have the gloves appropriate to the situation. Gloves should be worn when performing any sterile wound dressing, putting on a band aid, contact with blood or fluid, mucous membrane or soiled skin. Santinel offers Nitrile gloves in a variety of sizes and models.
Nitrile was developed as an alternative product to natural rubber latex and is the preferred material by ambulance attendees. It has flexibility, strength and durability similar to latex, while avoiding the potential allergen problems. They are an essential element that must be included in any first aid kit your business may have.
