When Simon Thomas of the Royal Mail Group worked as the lead engineer for a team of specialist automation relocation contractors, H&S was always of the highest priority – especially as the majority of the sites he was working on fell under CDM regulations.
He looked for a safety glove that would keep his team’s hands protected while allowing them to carry out intricate tasks and settled on the TG100 Nimble as it offered the best dexterity of any safety glove he had tried.
The TG100 Nimble is coloured red to show that it provides EN388 Cut Level 1 protection, and Simon appreciated being able to see at a glance that everyone was complying with his glove policy. It also earned his team consistently high marks during site safety audits.
Which TraffiGloves and why?
Simon selected the TG100 Nimble (Cut Level 1) as it gave his crew the protection they needed for their general handling activities while providing the dexterity they required for more intricate work.
The [TG100 Nimble] gloves are durable, long-lasting and washable which helps keep the replacement costs down. I am now in a new role within one of the UK’s largest publicly owned companies and am working towards introducing TraffiGlove products across the business, from engineering to operations. [Many] staff suffer from cracked and dry skin, eczema/dermatitis and cuts from the surprisingly harsh environment within which we work. I feel we can only benefit from the introduction of these products.Simon Thomas Lead Engineer Royal Mail Group
Since the time of publishing, the TG100 Nimble has been replaced by the TG122 Agile.
