Cotton Safety Gloves
When it comes to staying warm on the job and keeping your hands clean, cotton safety gloves are a good choice. They’re light enough that they won’t get in your way, but they will also protect you and your team from a range of mild hazards on the job. Another common use for these gloves is product protection. Use safety gloves made of cotton to keep fingerprints or skin oils off delicate surfaces.
They’re also perfect for household jobs like gardening, yard work, and clearing debris. Cotton safety gloves are much more affordable than other types of safety gloves, making them a great addition for your business. At PK Safety, we sell a range of inexpensive cotton safety gloves, many of which come in bulk, helping you save even more.
Some of our cotton work gloves are made with a mix of cotton and polyester, which keeps them breathable and flexible. You can stretch them in nearly every direction, so they won’t limit your range of movement on the job. These soft materials will keep your team warm all winter long while protecting their hands from dirt, debris, and other messy items in the field.
String knit gloves are a great solution when you need hand protection but don't want to get overheated. If you’re trying to protect your team from various fire hazards, cuts, burns, and potentially dangerous chemicals, it’s best to use leather gloves or heat-resistant gloves instead, but cotton safety gloves are much more effective when it comes to everyday handiwork tasks. Consider your work environment before investing in safety gloves.

What are the benefits of wearing cotton gloves?
Cotton work gloves provide hand protection on the job. The material will fit over the person’s hands, so they don't come into contact with materials and objects in the workplace. The warm, insulating fabric shields the skin from extreme temperatures, including freezing cold and hot surfaces. Workers can handle objects and items with care without putting their extremities at risk. If the weather turns cold, workers should wear warm, insulating gloves that will lock in the heat. Frostbite can easily set in when the skin is exposed, which can damage the nerves and make it difficult for workers to grab onto objects.
The gloves also provide abrasion resistance. They protect against dirt, debris, sharp edges, and rough surfaces that can lead to cuts and scrapes. Individuals can pick up items that would normally be uncomfortable or painful to the touch.
The gloves are also designed to help the worker keep a solid grip on whatever they are holding, so they don’t drop equipment or fragile items that could break.
Wearing these gloves on the job or keeping them on your person will ultimately improve worker productivity. Everyone on the team can touch or interact with surfaces knowing they aren’t putting their hands in harm’s way.
