In the fish processing industry, workers are often working in cold conditions, like a large indoor fridge or freezer and so the most common glove combination is to wear a cotton or wool glove as a barrier from the cold, with a disposable nitrile glove on the outside to protect against any sort of contamination. Nitrile has become the industry standard, and the most popular choice for a disposable glove because it doesn’t have any of the risks of allergic reactions like it’s counterpart, latex, and nitrile is more durable and inherently resistant to chemicals.
