The HexArmor Chrome Series are arguably the toughest mechanics style glove on the market and definitely one of the most versatile, boasting high cut and abrasion resistance, impact protection and specialized palm coatings to create unique protection for wearers in a plenitude of applications in some of the most hazardous industries on the planet, including mining, oil and gas industries and steel works. No matter your specific needs in a safety glove, there’s a HexArmor Chrome Series glove for you.
Hand and finger injuries lead the industry’s recordable incidents rates every year. Data from IADC’s 2009 Incident Statistics Program (ISP) indicate that 34% of recordable incidents and 20% of lost-time incidents fall in this hand and finger category which means that now more than ever, finding the correct hand safety gloves should be of top priority.
In industries like mining, for example, hand safety is of upmost importance. For the workers there is very little room for error; miners are working in confined spaces with hazardous surroundings and low visibility. The tools used are large, heavy and more often than not, more hazardous than in any other industry. A recent survey in the U.S found that nearly 48% of miners experienced a hand injury that required medical attention over their careers.
