The Hand Protection Assessment Survey from Polyco – helping you help your customers

The range of hand and arm protection products available on the market today is extremely broad. As a result, it can be difficult to determine the right solution for the job to be done. To help PPE distributors guide their customers towards the right choice, Polyco offers a free comprehensive survey. Undertaken by glove-industry experts, the survey will:

  • Cover current EN standards and relevant legislation, particularly the PPE Directive 89/656/EEC;
  • Provide a detailed report, highlighting the most appropriate products for various work tasks and environments;
  • Document a process to support risk assessment procedures;
  • Identify common areas where improvements can be made, in terms of both cost and best practice; and
  • Advise on how to avoid injury claims and lost time due to employee ill health.
