Use assessment and wear tests to validate glove choices: With so many glove choices available, it can be challenging to find the right glove for the application. Assessment and wear tests can help validate glove choices.
Focus on objective business improvements: The goal is to eliminate hand injuries, reduce the cost of ownership of hand protection, and standardize protection needs. This focus allows for objective business improvements.
Consider subjective attributes that improve productivity: Productivity can be improved by considering subjective attributes such as comfort, dexterity, and grip when selecting hand protection.
