Protective Gloves (PPE) For Pharmaceutical Environments
SHOWA offers an extensive range of quality and reliable pharmaceutical gloves for laboratories, medical research centers, and other pharmaceutical applications that require strict control of particulate matter.
Types of Risks in the Pharmaceutical Industry
Similar to any other industry, a job in the pharma sector comes with unique risks. These include but are not limited to:
Exposure to UV Radiation
Although it’s non-ionic, UV radiation from ultraviolet lamps in transilluminator boxes, biological safety cabinets, UV crosslinkers and other equipment used to maintain product sterility in pharmaceutical labs can cause painful localized skin sores and skin cancer.
Thick nitrile pharmaceutical gloves and double latex gloves from SHOWA offer superb UV radiation protection, enabling your pharma workers to get their job done without exposure.
Exposure to antibiotic dust during the production process causes fungal infections of the skin and nails.
SHOWA’s range of pharmaceutical gloves includes options like nitrile, biodegradable (EBT), and polyurethane gloves, all of which serve as an impenetrable barrier against antibiotic dust, consequently eliminating the chances of fungal infections.
The constant, repetitive movements from packaging and filling machines in the pharmaceutical industry put staff at the risk of cuts, abrasion, crushing, entanglement, impact, punctures, vibration, and shearing.
SHOWA’s cut-, abrasion-, and impact-resistant gloves offer superior protection against these potential hand traps, allowing your employees to complete their jobs without the constant worry of hand injuries.
