How To Use and Remove Gloves

Donning Gloves

  • Select the proper glove(s) for the type of work and potential hazards.
  • Check for visible tears and other defects.
  • Remove rings and other jewelry if they may rip gloves.
  • Protective ability diminishes as gloves are worn due to stretching and abrasion; change gloves regularly or as soon as possible if they are overtly contaminated.
  • Wash hands immediately before donning gloves.
  • Never reuse disposable gloves.

Doffing Gloves

  • Grasp the exterior of one glove with your other gloved hand.
  • Carefully pull the glove off your hand, turning it inside-out.
  • Ball the glove up and hold in your other gloved hand.
  • Slide your ungloved finger into the opening of the other glove.
  • Carefully pull the glove off your hand, turning it inside out again.
  • Discard appropriately.
