It is always recommended one to wear gloves while handling science equipment. One should wear appropriate face mask and headgear, it is also very important to put gloves  on for protecting your hands from the chemicals you are handling.

Reasons why you should wear gloves while handling Science equipment

Safe Guard your Skin

While performing experiments in lab you deal with various chemicals and other materials in a science laboratory. Some of these can be harmful and cause harm to the skin. You may get infection  if you don’t wear gloves. So, whenever you are handling chemicals & laboratory equipment be sure you are wearing gloves.

Delay Harmful Effects 

When you spill something like blood or any infectious liquid on your gloves, you get few seconds to remove them before they actually come in contact with your skin and this is the time when you take precaution and wash your hands soon after this. There is always a possibility that these fluids can seep through your gloves to your skin. However, if you are not wearing gloves, you will be exposed to the harmful possibilities immediately.
