Ansell sells an ultralight Spectra surgical glove liner. You can get the same sort of thing for industrial use, without sterilization, from us or other suppliers. Wear one under the thin disposable lab glove of your choice. (Or put the glove under the liner, depending on the application.) To my knowledge no one makes a laboratory version of the types of chem/cut resistant gloves that are available for plant use in the chemical industry.

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.
