Research has shown that one of the most vulnerable times during the work day is when gloves have been removed for a brief moment to use a tablet or other touch screen device. Nowadays, with the ubiquity of technology, it is no surprise that these sorts of devices are showing up on construction sites, automotive garages, and other traditionally blue-collar work environments. Software and apps are used to track projects, keep up to date with clients, and a wide variety of other tasks.
With this widespread use of technology, many glove manufacturers and developers have worked to eliminate the need to remove gloves (therefore removing protection) to utilize touch screen devices. Now, there are many different types of touch screen compatible gloves on the market that will offer you the cut, puncture, and abrasion resistance you need, while allowing you to effectively use tablets and smart phones. Even if you don’t regularly use touch screen technology in your work place, you may require an extra level of dexterity or tactile sensitivity, which can be found through touch screen compatible work gloves.
