Gloves are required to protect workers from cuts, scrapes, punctures, burns, chemical absorption, or temperature extremes. It is crucial that the type of glove being used is the right one for the job since incorrect gloves may provide no protection. This is a particular problem with chemical absorption where incorrect gloves may allow certain chemicals to reach your skin - and you may be unaware that it is happening. Charts that can assist in determining the right gloves for the job are available from glove manufacturers.
