One of the most important functions of any safety glove is to provide protection to the hand, and in occupational environments where hypodermic needles or other sharps may be encountered, safety is absolutely paramount.

At Safety Gloves we offer a comprehensive range of Needle-Resistant Gloves for industries such as waste management, healthcare, emergency services, and any other occupation where dangerous needlestick injuries may be a risk.
