Although asbestos is no longer used in the manufacturing of newer heat-resistant gloves, some research labs still use a few of the older gloves, which can contain asbestos in concentrations up to 90% in the outer layer. Contact Environmental Health & Safety and we will visit your lab to evaluate the inventory of gloves, identify the ones which contain asbestos, and properly dispose of the asbestos-containing gloves. EHS cannot reimburse you for the gloves, but EHS can suggest vendors that provide non-asbestos heat-resistant replacement gloves.
