[ARCHIVED] How to Properly Remove and Dispose of Gloves, Masks and Sanitizing Wipes

best with Chief

Steps to remove gloves:

  1. Knowing how to properly remove and discard safety gear is very important.

  2. Grasp the outside of one glove at the wrist. Do not touch your bare skin.

  3. Peel the glove away from your body, pulling it inside out.

  4. Hold the glove you just removed in your glove hand.

  5. Peel off the second glove by putting your fingers inside the glove at the top of your wrist.

  6. Turn the second glove inside out while pulling it away from your body, leaving the first glove inside the second.

  7. Dispose of the gloves safely in a nearby waste receptacle. It’s recommended that this be done over a waste basket for immediate disposal.

  8. Wash your hands thoroughly immediately after removing gloves, or use hand sanitizer.

Used masks and wipes should also be promptly discarded in a waste basket preferably double bagged in a plastic bag. If you use a sanitizing wipe to clean your car door handle, steering wheel, shift knob or your hands inside your car, carry a Ziploc bag to hold the used wipes until you get to your destination where you can safely discard them. Dropping them on the ground (even when you think no one is looking) is definitely the wrong thing to do.
