  • Protective gloves

    Hello all my fellow Bowl tech people,

    Long time no talk.. Almost every lane oil or cleaner we get in today all state on the bottles or MSDS info about wearing protective gloves during use of it..

    My question is, How many are doing that? Are you using like a mechanics disposable glove or what ever? Like when cleaning lane machine, or filling and all?

    Heck, while were at it is anyone using gloves for the mechanic end of it while working on pinsetters or spotters?

    Thanks
    Mike

    I was using disposable gloves for a while, when trying to figure out what I was allergic to. I got these little bumps on my hands and fingers that itched like crazy and then would dry out and make them all flaky. Finally found out that it was the new hand soap that we were using in the bathrooms, which is why even with wearing the gloves my hands were still breaking out. What a b**ch.

    I also will, at times. use the mechanics gloves. If what I am doing is a real greasy job, or if I just don't feel like getting overly dirty that day.
    You don't have to be crazy to do this job...But it helps!

          I actually stopped using pin cleaner and tried simple green because one of my chasers looked up protective equipment = B on back of bottle and it states your supposed to have air supplied face mask to use ... He was uncomfortable using it and i dont blame him all that stuff has a nasty strong smell when using in pin cleaning machine...

          But most lane oil bottles state that also... They also all state where protective gloves kinda why i asked this question on this original post i did

              I think though it's very much a "cover our arses" situation, it won't really cause you any harm, they KNOW it won't cause you any harm but that 1 guy out 100,000 who may have a severe allergic reaction to something in it, now they can say well we told you wear X,Y,Z, if ya follow me....

                It's a CYA on the manufacturers part. I use safety glasses when pouring the liquids to prevent spills from splashing in my eye. Too easy for that to happen but the rest is no doubt over-kill. One thing to note though...if you work for somebody...and something happens because you didn't wear proper PPE...your employer is the one that pays...not you. Your employer pays for your injuries through either doctor bills they pay or higher insurance rates. I hear about folks that complain about having to wear PPE...but they are the first to stand in line to get the bills paid by the employer instead of themselves.

                Bottom line...wear the PPE to protect both you and your employer. When you own the company...you can do as you wish...the bills are yours.

                Hope that makes sense...

                  Protective equipment = B is safety glasses and gloves. Under the HMIS or HMIG system, the alphabet character corresponds to the required PPE. A is safety glasses, B is safety glasses and gloves, C is safety glasses, gloves and an apron, etc. You can look up all of the designations online.

                  A PPE rating of B is fairly common on many non-hazardous or low risk chemicals. If the chemical has a low health rating and is fairly non-toxic, a rating of B is simply protecting both the manufacturer and the user. You never know how your body and skin may react to a chemical. Everyone has different levels of sensitivity and what might irritate your skin may have no effect on someone else. A "B" rating is just a good practice to alert people that you should take a little precaution. It is entirely up to the user whether you follow the recommendations.

                  As for the locking or child proof caps, those really help during shipping. Since they don't wiggle loose like non-locking caps, they make it much less likely that the bottle will leak.

                  On a side note, in regards to what Steve posted, if your employer requires you to wear PPE and you don't wear it and happen to get injured, worker's compensation can and most often will refuse to pay your claim. If that happens, the cost falls to you. It's always better to just wear the PPE and protect yourself than to not wear it. Safety glasses are a bare minimum and should be worn anytime splashing is a concern. Although, it is important to note, safety glasses won't protect you from large splashes (like being drenched) to the face and eyes. Only safety goggles will protect you in that case. While safety glasses are usually acceptable and will most likely protect you from small splashes when pouring, they aren't the "answer all" to eye protection.

                  I hope this helps.

                      I don't find myself spilling lane cleaner when mixing or pouring, so I don't give that much thought. Having said that, the gloves are there for anyone to use.

                      They are however required for use with the pinsetter cleaner because that stuff is strong and will suck the oil out of your hand in seconds.

                      We use disposable nitrile mechanics gloves, they're not that expensive.

                        Chemical resistant disposable gloves aren't that expensive and they're certainly worth the investment to save your hands from chemical irritations. Pinsetter parts cleaner (the solvent ones) can be very aggressive and very irritating to the skin. It's always better to protect yourself rather than take the chance.

                          i wear big bird gloves, a lab coat, safety goggles, and a hair cap when handling or mixing chemicals. go safe or go home! im kidding.

                          but seriously, i like to wear gloves when handling lane oil and cleaner. my hands get dry when using cleaner, plus its nice to rip the gloves off and have clean hands if you get a machine stop or what not. gloves are also nice when using a corded lane machine. saves the caking in of cord grime.
