Lab Safety

Chemical resistant gloves are an important aspect of protection against hazardous materials. It is critical that users select the correct glove material based on the chemicals used and the glove’s permeation data. Inappropriate use of glove material may actually injure a worker as chemicals can quickly permeate the barrier. Please review the manufacturer, test data, and our glove usage recommendations. Together the information will allow you to select the best glove material for your application. Then proceed to the availability table for gloves at Brown University If your glove material is not available on campus, look for it through the listed vendor. Finally, if you have any questions on glove selection, contact the the Office of Environmental Health & Safety.
