Chemical Protection from Gloves
Many chemicals can pose a hazard by contact with the skin. Skin contact occurs primarily on the hands. A hazard may be present either by direct action at the point of contact (e.g., corrosion) or by absorption into the skin thus contributing to the total exposure of the worker. Industrial dermatitis is the most common industrial disease. Almost 25% of chemicals with a TLV have a Skin Notation that means that they can contribute significantly to worker exposure if the product comes in contact with the skin.
