Hi, this is my first use of this discussion group.

I have two questions:

1. Does anyone know of a 'model' Job Safety (Hazard) Analysis  
program? I am responsible for developing one for our group (from  
scratch) and while I have good examples here, I wanted to know if  
others had worked out issues that often arise from developing new  
strategies? I want to expand my knowledge base before I try and  
tackle this monster.

2. I am curious if anyone knows of any cut-resistant gloves that may  
have been developed with the medical profession in mind. We have a  
number of biologists conducting numerous animal and tissue studies,  
and I'd like to lessen the hazard of lacerations, however, it seems  
like 'our' suppliers (those available to us) don't really have what  
we are looking for. I am not looking for a slew of company names, but  
some companies that may have developed a glove that is not only cut- 
resistant, but has been developed for use either with common surgical  
gloves (Nitrile, latex, etc.) or in a combination (where the cut- 
resistant glove is also part nitrile/latex, etc). The key components  
are flexibility, decontamination, and cost.

Thanks in advance for any/all help.
