Types of Winter Gloves For Workers


The marketplace has a wide selection of winter work gloves to meet a variety of jobsite applications.

In addition to helping you combat the cold in mild and extreme conditions, winter work gloves often serve other protective functions, including:

  • High visibility protection
  • Cut protection
  • Impact protection
  • Abrasion protection
  • Waterproof insulated protection
  • Extreme condition insulated protection
  • Gripping capabilities in wet and dry applications

Working in extremely low temperatures without high-quality cold weather gloves carries the danger of temporary or permanent damage to hands and fingers.

There’s also a risk that the ability to operate equipment or complete detailed tasks may be impaired due to improper insulation.

Make sure your hand protection inventory is equipped with the right winter glove to protect workers’ hands and fingers from frostbite, cuts, abrasions and punctures.

In harsh conditions, remember to always work in teams and look after each other.


Need Help Choosing a Winter Glove?

Choosing the right winter glove can be a complex decision dependent upon standards, materials, technologies, budget and job applications. But you don’t have to go down that road alone.

Most glove manufacturers have experienced safety specialists who can help you choose the right winter work glove for your cold prevention program.

Many offer complimentary hand protection assessments, fast facts, white papers and free samples to qualifying customers.
