When talking about the risk of contamination or the spread of bacteria, it is those who work with food items or patients in medical facilities that are used as examples. It is also important for those completing cleaning tasks to wear disposable gloves to prevent germs from bare hands from contaminating surfaces, and to protect themselves from potentially harmful cleaning chemicals or substances.
Why wear gloves while cleaning?
But why wear gloves if you aren’t coming in direct contact with food or patients? In medical and food service facilities it is not just the food items or medical tools and patients that must be kept free of contamination, but surfaces as well. Tables, counters, and even door knobs should be cleaned frequently to prevent the buildup of potentially harmful bacteria. This means cleaners or janitorial staff should take care to wear protective disposable gloves to prevent bacteria from bare hands from coming in contact with surfaces.
Cleaning and janitorial staff may also come in contact with typical household or general janitorial chemicals during tasks. Gloves can offer quality protection against potentially harmful chemicals for workers benefit to make completing tasks a breeze.
