Women need to protect their hands on the job. Whether that's in gardening or construction, a pair of safety gloves with a reinforced palm often does the trick. At Safety Girl, our selection of women's safety gear includes gloves by Carhartt and Ironclad. Carhartt carries various nitrile and leather gloves. Leather safety gloves, in general, are ideal for outdoor activities, while nitrile is best for handling chemicals on the job. Additional features on Carhartt safety gloves for women include insulation and pig skin for a utility glove. Ironclad, on the other hand, is known as the maker for the Tuff Chix glove, which has a synthetic leather palm and nail guards for working outdoors.
