Gloves and PPE

View PDF: HSE PPE Guidelines

Every employer has a duty to safeguard its employees, and this may mean providing staff with equipment, clothing, gloves and similar gear to prevent injury and reduce the risk of harm.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 provides that "It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees"

With this in mind, Avanti has expanded its range of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) so that we now offer an even wider range of products, including an extensive selection of disposable gloves, as well as face masks, eye protection and protective workwear.

We are proud to be a distributor for HPC Healthline, a company which has become synonymous with supplying the NHS's growing demand for examination and surgical gloves. HPC?éÔÇÖs medical gloves are produced under the well known brands Handsafe?é?« and Fine Touch?é?«, and Shield?é?« for non-medical gloves. In addition to a full range of medical and non-medical gloves we stock a complete range of polythene aprons, coats and coveralls, mob caps, overshoes and oversleeves, face masks and protective goggles. All products meet the high levels of quality demanded and conform to all relevant British and European Standards.

PPE Directive: 89/686/EEC

This is the European Directive presenting the safety Standards for industrial devices. The Directive applies to any device or appliance designed to be worn or held by an individual for protection against one or more health and safety hazards (as defined in the Directive).

Compliance with this Directive is indicated by affixing a CE pictogram. The PPE Directive covers a wide range of head to foot protective workwear (disposable and non-disposable).

This Directive classifies protective workwear into three categories:

Simple Design:
Products offering protection against hazards of minimal risk

Complex Design:
Products offering protection against hazards of serious or mortal risk

Intermediate Design:
Products offering protection against hazards that are not in the other two categories

The following Standards, which are among those that regulate gloves under the PPE Directive, are listed below as applicable to several of the gloves stocked by Avanti:

EN 420:2003 - General Requirements for Gloves
This Standard defines general requirements for ergonomy, product design, construction, comfort, efficiency and marking.

EN 388:2003 - Protective Gloves against Mechanical Risks
Specifies the requirements against abrasion, blade cut, puncture and tear

EN 374:2003 - Protective Gloves against Chemicals and Micro-organisms
Specifies the requirements against penetration and permeation of chemicals and/or biological hazards

The other protective workwear items that we stock are also regulated by the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC. Most of our disposable workwear will fall under the minimal risk category.

HACCP and Food Processing

HACCP stands for 'Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point'. It is an internationally recognised and recommended system of food safety management. It focuses on identifying the 'critical points' in a process where food safety problems (or 'hazards') could arise and putting steps in place to prevent things going wrong. This is sometimes referred to as 'controlling hazards'. Food handlers and other personnel with access to food processing areas could contaminate the product by introducing microbiological, chemical or physical (foreign body) hazards. Whilst plant layout and movement controls can reduce the risk, it is essential to provide the workforce with appropriate protective clothing. The purpose of the workwear is primarily to protect the foodstuffs, although of course it will serve to protect the wearer also.

In order to avoid any cross-contamination between food preparation and handlers, all staff working in a food environment must respect a high level of hygiene and must wear clean and appropriate workwear. This could include shoes or shoecovers specifically for the work area, headwear, face masks and disposable gloves.
