CASE STUDY: A Glove for every occasions

A multi-site resources company facing an industry slow down was looking for every opportunity to reduce their production costs.

Blackwoods Safety identified 42 individual styles of mechanical safety glove being purchased.

A formal fit for purpose and consumption assessment of the gloves in use identified that many gloves were providing inadequate protection and the large and varied range meant large quantities of stock were being held in inventory. Out of stocks were common and a significant amount of work was being created for the supply chain team.

After conducting hand protection surveys, four global glove manufacturers were engaged to develop a custom range of gloves to suit multiple activities.

Following a formal product evaluation trial, site specific hand protection training programs were delivered to workers and customised glove selection charts were positioned in work areas across all sites.

The final results of this program was the delivery of a specialised range of gloves resulting in a significant reduction in the necessary inventory and a simplified supply chain. The most significant result however has been the 35% reduction in hand injuries in the 12 months following the training that was deployed with the new glove range.
