Hand Protection and Safety for Outdoor Winter Work

Posted by Obbco Safety & Supply on 1/29/2016 to General
Much like the way employers worry about the risks of heat exhaustion, sunburn and dehydration for their crews in the summer, there are equally important safety risks and hazards to consider while working outside in cold temperatures. Freezing temperatures, wind and snow not only draw heat away from the body and can lead to injury or hypothermia if stuck with the improper gear.

Fabric and texture need to be suited to the job, so be sure to choose the appropriate gloves. Safety gloves are available with 3M’s Thinsulate™ lining, while others feature fleece or a rubberized, water-resistant palm.

When gloves get wet in the cold, they lose their ability to insulate heat and essentially become useless. Finding the right weatherproof gloves for your line of work is critical to the safety of your team. At OBBCO, we offer many varieties of cold weather gloves, including:

  • Our ProFlex 817 Thermal waterproof utility gloves from Ergodyne are one of our popular gloves that offer waterproof, windproof protection that is still breathable. There is no insert layer stitched into the glove – any moisture is stopped by the OutDry technology at the first layer. They also offer a sure-gripping PVC palm for a wide range of uses.

  • Our pigskin fleece-lined gloves are made from premium, top-grain materials. They are naturally resistant to wet or oily conditions, but are not fully waterproof. They are fleece-lined for ultimate warmth and comfort, and the double stitching on the fore finger provides extra reinforcement and durability.

  • Honeywell’s “North Polar” gloves come with the 3M Thinsulate liner for cold protection and a waterproof vinyl liner for additional protection from the elements. The extended knitwrist provides added wrist and forearm warmth with any outerwear. These superior quality gloves are recommended for temperatures down to -36 F. They are ideal for construction, forestry, de-icing, snow clearing, highway work and maintenance. 

We also offer special contract pricing when you establish an account with us. Not sure what kind of gloves you’ll need for the cold season? Give us a call at 757-420-4000 or come by our Chesapeake, VA supply store and speak with a member of our knowledgeable staff.
