1. » TECHNICAL RELEASE HAZARDS IN RESEARCH LABORATORIES: CHEMICAL EXPOSURE Working in a laboratory often requires handling a wide range of chemicals, from acids, bases, inorganic and organic chemicals to solvents with different functional groups, each presenting a different health hazard upon exposure. These health hazards range from skin burns and irritation to respiratory injury and carcinogenic health effects. Chemical splash is the most commonly occurring hazard or incident in a laboratory. Therefore, it is necessary to protect the researchers across the breadth of chemicals handled, and new chemical entities, for which complete toxicological testing has not been yet performed. To protect researchers against chemical exposure, it is paramount to understand how gloves protect from chemicals: • Recognize that every glove style delivers a different level of protection from specific chemicals and hazards based on the material of construction • Conduct a hazard assessment, read chemical safety data sheets and consider all substances gloves may come in contact with. • Ask yourself whether the wearer requires: » Chemical Splash or Chemical Immersion Protection • If so, what chemicals is the wearer working with, and for how long might they be exposed? Ansell’s broad range of disposable gloves will protect laboratory researchers against chemical splashes across a spectrum of chemical compounds. Developed by scientists, this broad offering protects you against most of the solvents that you would encounter in your research environment.
