Protect your hands.

Recently, I had the chance to earn a 40-Hour HAZWOPER certification which stands for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.

In sum, it was an amazing experience and one that taught me a lot about preserving the environment and ourselves when hazardous substances are involved.

One thing learned in the training was the body’s ability to absorb things through skin; and an example the instructors mentioned was using harsh shop chemicals with bare hands. Depending on the product, a variety of adverse health conditions can occur.

Because of this, I make it a habit to wear nitrile gloves when working with chemicals. It’s a simple thing that’ll better protect my health without costing much money.
