How To Use and Remove 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.
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.
