We will be presenting at several of the NZDOHTA regional events held throughout the year, with our presentation titled:

The good, the bad and the dirty

A users guide to disposable gloves and what to ask before you buy them.  Warning - this presentation contains content that may be harmful to your health!
The presentation will cover
  • How gloves are manufactured
  • Why it is important to visit these factories personally
  • Factory hygiene standards
  • The raw materials in gloves. 45% of the cost of a glove is in the raw materials.  Cheap raw materials = cheaper glove = more allergies. 
We look forward to seeing you at these events!
