The Best Nitrile Glove For Safety

Workplace safety affects all industries from the food service industry to protection against biological agents in the medical industry. Accidents and injuries in the workplace can be reduced greatly by having the proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

The texture of the AMMEX Gloveworks Green Nitrile glove is one benefit, but the glove color and glove thickness just add to this glove’s uniqueness. The high-visibility green color really demands to be seen, so you won’t lose sight of your co-workers’ hands, and they won’t lose sight of yours. This is a major safety feature when you are working with heavy machinery or in dimly lit areas.

AMMEX Gloveworks Green Nitrile gloves boast an 8-mil thickness, which means they’re durable and resistant to punctures, tears, and rips – in fact, three times more resistant than latex or vinyl. Just like our orange and black nitrile disposable gloves, the Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile gloves will protect you against solvents, grease, pesticides, cleaning solutions, and many specialty chemicals.

Top Rated Nitrile Gloves

Once you’ve tried the AMMEX lineup of Gloveworks HD Nitrile Powder Free Industrial gloves in orange, black, or green, you won’t want to wear anything else. No other disposable glove measures up to their level of safety and comfort, and the diamond texture is in a class by itself.

The best disposable glove for job safety protects the user’s hands from harsh chemicals and solvents, and is selected based on how long and in what tasks the glove will be used.

Why Safety Matters for All Industries


June is National Safety Month and workplace safety is no accident.  In fact, occupational accidents and injuries affect every industry and can majorly impact an employer’s bottom line.  Businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with occupational injuries and Illness. However, workplace accidents can be substantially reduced with a solid safety program incorporating personal protective equipment (PPE). This June, we encourage you to learn more about why safety matters for all industries.  Each week during National Safety Month, AMMEX will share valuable industry-specific topics, tips, and trends that you can reshare or send directly so you are a Safety Expert for your clients #‎SafetyMatters.

Safety Matters for All Industries

    • Week 1:  Safety Month Launch
    • Week 2:  JanSan Industry
    • Week 3:  Automotive Industry
    • Week 4:  Food Service Industry
    • Week 5:  Medical and Dental Industry

Why Safety Matters for All Industries

Workplace safety affects all industries – whether it’s food safety in the food service industry, chemical safety in janitorial and sanitation, or protection against biological agents in the medical and dental industry – whatever the case workplace safety matters to every industry.  In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that workplace injuries reached 3.0 million in 2014 and occurred across all occupations.  Workplace injuries can significantly impact an employer’s bottom line.

“Creating a safe workplace is becoming increasingly important to business success.”

Employers that invest in workplace safety can expect to reduce fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. This will result in cost savings in a variety of areas, such as lowering workers’ compensation costs and medical expenses, avoiding OSHA penalties, and reducing costs to train replacement employees and conduct accident investigations. In addition, employers often find that changes made to improve workplace safety and health can result in significant improvements to their organization’s productivity and financial performance.

“Because much work is done with the hands, gloves are essential for workplace safety programs.”

Fatalities and injuries can be substantially reduced with the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).  Any form of PPE that acts as a barrier between the skin and the agent of exposure can be considered skin protection. Gloves are an essential tool in protecting workers. Some examples of gloves commonly used as PPE include leather work gloves and disposable gloves such as nitrile, latex, vinyl or poly.  Many different gloves are used for protection, generally against biological agents, chemical agents, and mechanical trauma.  Other than gloves, protection worn for the purpose of protecting the skin is considered personal protection equipment such as face masks, poly sleeves, aprons, and hair nets.

National Safety Month is a great time for employers to evaluate workplace safety programs and safety equipment. The benefits of a workplace safety program can directly affect the company’s bottom line, reducing costs and improving productivity.  AMMEX disposable gloves are sold by AMMEX distributors and trusted by the most prominent end users across a variety of industries.  Contact us today to become a distributor and supply your customers with superior quality disposable gloves and barrier protection products.

6 Safety Tips for Every Industry


Safety is no accident. Safety affects everyone in every industry.  In fact, workplace injuries and illnesses significantly impact everyone whether it’s – employers profits, workers health or rising insurance costs for consumers.  However, accidents are preventable with safety protocols, proper training and safety products. Join AMMEX this June for National Safety Month, and learn about industry-specific safety topics, tips, and trends.

6 Safety Tips for Every Industry

The benefits of a workplace safety program can directly affect the company’s bottom line, reducing costs and improving productivity. Every workplace has hazards that endanger workers, but many of these issues are avoidable with the proper safety protocals, safety gear, and training.

1. De-clutter to prevent falls
Falls are one of the most common workplace injuries and resulted in 699 fatal injuries in 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Even in cases with no fatalities, falling to a lower level may cause serious injuries. Unsafe practices and a low safety culture across many industries define steady fall injury rates year after year.   According to a CDC study, “Fall injuries constitute a considerable financial burden: workers’ compensation and medical costs associated with occupational fall incidents have been estimated at approximately $70 billion annually in the United Sates.”

Falls often occur in the workplace because of cluttered areas, slippery or uneven floor surfaces, floor holes, wall openings, unprotected edges and improperly positioned ladders. Although the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Association has regulations requiring specific fall protection measures for different industries, falls may still be common due to a lack of safety culture in an organization. To avoid falls, companies should ensure all working areas are free from clutter. In addition, shoe covers with rubberized grips give workers better traction.

2. A culture of safety starts with you
Understanding the unique risks at your company or in your industry helps managers create effective training. Emphasize the importance of safety so employees take it to heart. Workplace safety should be an early area of focus when new workers start at the company. Conduct regular inspections to identify anything that could become a hazard.

3.  Train workers on all tools and equipment
Tools and equipment help millions of workers get their jobs done in every industry every day.  Whether it’s heavy machinery in the industrial sector or surgeons tools in the medical and dental industry.  Tools and equipment are needed and so is the proper training.Anyone who works with specific machinery should receive training. In addition, equipment should be regularly checked to ensure it stays in working order. Improper use of tools and equipment  introduces risks into the workplace.  According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) –

“It has been estimated that employers pay almost $1 billion per week for direct workers’ compensation costs alone.”

4. Reduce workplace stress
Stressed out employees are more likely to be injured on the job. Long hours tire workers, making them less aware of their surroundings. Encourage workers to talk to their supervisors if they feel high levels of stress. Allow time for regular breaks so employees have a chance to recharge.

5. Lift correctly
Picking up heavy items improperly causes back injuries and chronic pain. Workers who need to lift heavy items should use proper form to avoid injury. Lift slowly and smoothly from the thighs, not the back. After picking up a heavy item, hold it close to the body. Use mechanical aids whenever possible to reduce the likelihood of back injuries.

6. Use the right PPE for the job
With risks in nearly every industry, some sectors must provide personal protective equipment for employees.  Whether it’s protection from harsh chemicals, avoiding cross-contamination, or preventing the spread of infection – PPE such as gloves are an essential tool for safety in every industry.  All employees need to be educated on how to use PPE, and all gear should fit well and be comfortable, which encourages employees to make use of it. Depending on the job, personal protective equipment like work gloves, disposable gloves or face masks greatly reduces the risk of workplace injury.  When it comes to disposable gloves for barrier protection, employers need to be mindful of

Depending on the job, personal protective equipment like work gloves, disposable gloves or face masks greatly reduces the risk of workplace injury.  When it comes to disposable gloves for barrier protection, employers need to be mindful of chemical and puncture resistance, fit and latex sensitivities. All PPE should be tested before implemented across an organization. In addition to gloves, companies may need face masks, sleeves, and other protective coverings.

Safety Matters to all industries – it affects employees health, employers profits, the public’s health costs and the global economy. Employers who invest in the safety of their employees see improved morale, increased productivity, lower costs and, most importantly, fewer injuries. Smart distributors understand their customer’s unique, industry-specific needs then customize solutions such as product assortment and product education to meet the ever-changing demands.

Tap into Disposable Glove Opportunities in Baseball


It’s Spring and America’s favorite pastime, baseball is in full swing!  For baseball fans everywhere the Major League Baseball season brings back the thrills of home runs on perfectly maintained turfs, tasty concession-stand foods and the fan camaraderie in the bleachers. But when the game ends and the last fans leave, another game starts – hundreds of workers labor overnight to clean up the stadium, restock the concession stands and meticulously groom the field – all before the next baseball game.  The baseball season means revenue opportunities for smart distributors of disposable gloves and barrier protection products. The Opening Day lineup is crucial for a fast start in baseball and in business. Are you ready for an early winning streak this quarter? Tap into disposable glove opportunities in baseball – Three ways you can grow your glove sales with AMMEX.

Concession Stand Food Service 

What is baseball without hot dogs, peanuts, and popcorn? Did you know that the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council (NHDSC),estimates that baseball fans will consume more than 19.4 million hot dogs this year at stadiums across the country?  To avoid contamination, concession stand food service workers need disposable gloves to handle hot dogs and other foods at the concession stand.  Food service gloves such as loose-fitting poly gloves or polyethylene gloves are ideal since they easy to don and doff when switching between tasks or even between customers. Another popular choice for food service employees are vinyl gloves which are ideal in cases where greater dexterity is needed, closer-fitting vinyl gloves come in handy.  In the food service industry, workers on average use up to 20 pairs of disposable gloves per day.  But consider the food service velocity in a baseball stadium and imagine the possibilities for increased sales with poly and vinyl food service gloves.

An average baseball hot dog vendor sells about 150 hot dogs per game and 10,000 to 12,000 hot dogs per season. How many disposable gloves will an average baseball food vendor need?”

Groundskeepers

Most of the time, fans only see groundskeepers resetting the field during the seventh inning stretch, or scrambling to cover the field during a sudden rain storm. However, a great deal of work goes into maintaining that field when players and spectators are absent.  Most fields are still made of grass rather than AstroTurf, which means groundskeepers must maintain it on a day-to-day basis.   Did you know that you can earn a college degree in Turfgrass Management, a Master’s degree, and a Ph.D.?  There’s a lot of work involved in maintaining a sports field than most people would imagine. To keep a fresh green appearance, groundskeepers apply pesticides and other chemicals that could irritate or damage hands of workers.

Disposable nitrile gloves such as AMMEX Heavy Duty Orange Nitrile provide a protective barrier against chemicals and are still strong enough to protect from other irritants. In other situations, like removing thorny plants from the field, groundskeepers may need a more heavy-duty work glove like nitrile dipped or latex dipped work gloves. Tap into disposable glove opportunities in baseball – Opportunities are everywhere, from nitrile and latex disposable gloves for tasks on the turf to nitrile and latex dipped work gloves for tougher groundskeeping jobs.

JanSan Cleanup Crew

Once the crowds leave, another crowd descends on the stadium – janitorial and sanitation crews work overnight to clean up after thousands of fans. According to data from Business Insider, the average MLB ballpark is 2.49 acres, or more than 100,000 square feet, which provide endless opportunities for disposable nitrile, vinyl, and latex gloves.  All in all, cleaning up a stadium is hard work, and it is not only the seats that need attention. Janitorial staff also need to attend to bathrooms and hallways, while concession staff scrub and sanitize their areas for the night. All of these activities require disposable gloves of varying thicknesses. In the janitorial and sanitation industry employees use gloves for various reasons, including protection from harsh chemicals and pathogens. Additionally, they use an average of 15 pairs per day but consider the magnitude of the crowds and surface space in baseball stadiums.

“The average capacity of the top 20 baseball stadiums is 40,000 fans.”  How many disposable gloves are needed to clean up after that crowd?”

Janitorial staff commonly use strong cleaning chemicals in the line of duty. Glass and metal cleaners that include hydrofluoric acid, nitrilotriacetate, and phosphoric acid could cause burns or irritation if proper protective barrier such as heavy duty nitrile gloves is not worn. Bleach is one of the most common cleaning chemicals but it is also highly corrosive to the skin.  In the janitorial and sanitation industry vinyl disposable gloves, are another good option because they are economically priced but still generally provide enough chemical resistance. Vinyl gloves protect hands against hydrofluoric, phosphoric and 10 percent concentrated nitric acids. Nitrile gloves provide even greater chemical resistance and are less likely to tear.  With the potential for vinyl, nitrile and latex glove sales, distributors do not want to miss out on the many sales opportunities in the Jan-san industry.

Disposable glove sales opportunity is everywhere including baseball stadiums – from food service workers, janitorial and sanitation crews’ and groundskeepers – Tap into disposable glove opportunities in baseball and grow your glove sales with AMMEX.  Become an AMMEX Distributor today!  If you are already a distributor, speak with your dedicated sales representative to discover the advantages of our Sales Acceleration Solution®.  Stay informed on industry trends by following us on Facebook.

Premium Gloves for Heavy-Duty Auto Technicians


All automotive vehicles require maintenance, but due to their sheer size, heavy-duty automotive vehicles, such as back hoes, steamrollers, tractors and more, require a significant amount of upkeep.

Servicing heavy-duty automotive equipment contains all the challenges of regular automotive service with the additional issues of dealing with equipment that is very large and has unique specifications and parts associated with it. As a result, it can take years to acquire all the knowledge and skills required for heavy-duty auto repair. According to Construction Equipment, it can take up to seven years to train technicians in this field, which is why most contractors outsource repairs rather than having an in-house team.

“It takes years for technicians to acquire skills to service heavy-duty vehicles.”

Challenges for heavy-duty auto technicians
Why does this profession take so long to learn? Heavy-duty auto technicians face a job that is tougher than the average auto technician. Like any technician, these professionals work with chemicals like hydraulic fluids, gasoline and antifreeze that are harmful to hands. Moreover, they frequently deal with sharp objects. For heavy-duty auto workers, all these tasks take place on an even larger scale. Construction equipment typically weighs several tons or more. This means the frames are much larger than typical automobiles, often requiring a stronger grip.

Companies tend to run their heavy-duty equipment for longer periods of time, sometimes 24 hours a day, seven days per week. As a result, this equipment acquires significant wear and tear, leading to a greater need for repairs. Moreover, companies have begun to realize that implementing a preventative maintenance plan is the most cost-effective means to protect vehicle fleets, resulting in more consistent trips to the technician.

Premium gloves for tough environments
In a heavy-duty environment, only the toughest gloves will do. These tough jobs require technicians to wear premium gloves for protection. Technicians would be wise to go for gloves that have a longer duration of use, raised textures for an enhanced grip and extended cuffs to protect the forearm. Nitrile or latex gloves are the best choice because of their chemical protection, puncture resistance and comfort.

Gloveworks Heavy Duty Orange Nitrile Gloves and GlovePlus Black Nitrile Gloves are good options because they hold up to longer use with three times the puncture resistance of latex. Xtreme Extra Long Nitrile Exam Gloves and GlovePlus Heavy Duty Nitrile Exam Gloves are 12 inches long – a full two inches longer than the average disposable glove.

Latex has greater elasticity than nitrile, providing more comfort in harsh environments. Gloveworks Heavy Duty Latex Industrial Gloves provide superior protection to the average latex glove. GlovePlus Heavy Duty Blue Latex Exam Gloves offer extended length as well.

March Madness Team Latex

 While a team full of young guns can bring a new pace and finesse to the court, veteran squads like AMMEX’s X3 series Team Latex have been playing the barrier protection game for years. These latex gloves are the oldest of all the teams in our March Madness lineup but do not think their skills have dwindled with age.  Here is our starting lineup for March Madness Team Latex

HD Industrial and HD Exam Latex
These two players are cut from the same cloth – both are able to stay in the game for longer because of their thickness. The HD Industrial latex gloves and HD Exam latex disposable gloves are twins, with the former playing best within the industrial sector and the latter dominating the medical industry. Plus, when it comes to fit and feel, these two latex gloves are all-stars.

“March Madness Team Latex is full of veteran players.”

Gloveworks Heavy Duty Latex is an industrial grade glove that is more than twice as thick as a standard disposable latex glove. With enhanced puncture resistance, each glove has a longer duration of use so you don’t have to switch gloves as often during tough jobs. Latex gloves feature more elasticity than nitrile, and better puncture resistance than vinyl. The textured surface of the glove will give you an enhanced grip in wet and dry conditions. It’s also powder free, so you don’t have to worry about messy powder residue.

AMMEX Heavy Duty Latex Exam Gloves are powder free featuring a smooth interior for easy donning and a textured surface for an outstanding grip. These latex gloves are twice as strong as standard disposable gloves. AMMEX HD latex disposable gloves are perfect for your more demanding tasks and are commonly used for medical and dental applications, food processing, janitorial, and in laboratory settings.

LX3 
If you want that player that can move around the court and provide exceptional dexterity, AMMEX’s X3 series have the skills you need, including the LX3 Latex gloves. They are thinner than their teammates, providing more tactile sensitivity and a full range of motion. Also, these gloves come with a polymer coating for easier donning. X3 is an all around solid contender on the court.

AMMEX LX3 Latex disposable gloves are well suited for all industrial applications where excellent dexterity and comfort is required. These gloves are commonly used for painting, janitorial, manufacturing and food service.  LX3 latex is also more elastic than nitrile and features excellent chemical resistance against various acids and bases.  LX3 industrial latex disposable gloves feature a fully textured palm and fingertips providing a strong grip in wet or dry conditions.

“Boost your Brackets with Team Latex”

While some will see their brackets fall to pieces, others will play to win. Why take a gamble when the perfect barrier protection is your best bet?Contact us to today to become a distributor and add Team Latex to your player line-up!

Beyond Medical Exam Gloves


Did you know workers in the medical and dental industries use an average of 15 pairs of disposable gloves each day which is 3,960 pairs each year? While this number may appear high, it is not that different – or even the highest usage – compared to glove usage in other industries.

When people think of disposable gloves, they often picture doctors or nurses snapping latex gloves on their hands. However, the medical and dental industries are far from the only places where gloves are used.

Let’s consider the glove revenue for these combined industries, which was nearly $5 billion in 2012. While this is an impressive figure, it is a little more than half the glove revenue for the industrial safety industry. If this is not enough of an indication of how medical and dental glove usage is just a small part of the total market, consider that the revenue share for this sector was approximately 27 percent of the total in 2012.

This is all not to say there are not still opportunities for glove use in exam settings – all applications are projected to see significant growth. Yet, the data does indicate there are a wealth of opportunities to get workers in various industries the gloves they need to get the job done.
