In all workplaces, it is recommended that gloves are made available in case they might be required. Gloves may be worn based on the risks and tasks to be performed.

However, washing hands frequently or using alcohol-based hand sanitiser will usually be a better control measure against infection than wearing gloves. When a person wears gloves, they may come into contact with germs which are then transferred to other objects or their face if they don’t replace and dispose of or clean their gloves between tasks.
