There are over 300,000 hand injuries every year. The average cost of these injuries is $740 million annually; and the indirect costs of a hand and wrist injury could be 20 times that. Unfortunately, these injuries can cost employees more than wages or time lost, but their ability to hold loved ones, swing a golf club, or even the ability and ease to dress in the morning. Protecting hands helps people live life to the fullest.
These costs are just one of the reasons are just one of the many reasons why companies large and small want partner with the International Glove Association. The IGA is the only organization dedicated solely to hand and arm protection, striving to protect everyone who wears a pair of gloves.
