Because we value the planet and its people
Our HandCare® program is the umbrella for all our programs that are used and integrated into every single ATG® product. Our HandCare® program gives our customers and professional glove users the confidence that our full range of gloves are dermatologically safe and the environmental aspects behind the production of our gloves is solid, robust and sustainable.
ISO 14001: Environmental management
We have a dedicated team that continually measures and monitors the short and long-term ecological impact of all our production processes. An example of this is our water treatment facilities that have the ability to process rain harvested water for use in our post laundering processes. Our entire manufacturing process and facilities are ISO 14001 certified.
REACH: Protection of Human Health and the Environment
Our whole manufacturing process is in line with the requirements of the European REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemical Substances). All our gloves are DMF free and further more we guarentee that all our products today and in the future will remain free from substances of very high concern (SVHC)
Sanitized®: Added Hygiene
Within our gloves we use sanitized to keep odors to a minimum. Sanitized® is like a deodorant that helps keep your gloves fresher longer and leaves you feeling safe and protected. Please note that ATG® uses a specific grade of Sanitized® that is “triclosan free”.
Fresh out of the Pack: Oeko-Tex®
Not only do we make certain that all the elements used in our manufacturing process are safe for our employees, we also wash all the gloves after the production process as a further step in ensuring cleanliness. During this laundering process, we favour the use of water that is rain-harvested, treated and continually recycled from our own water treatment facilities. This enables us to guarantee our gloves to be “Fresh out of the pack” which is certified by Oeko-Tex®.
Dermatologically Acreddited: Skin Friendly
Our gloves are also dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health Alliance. The Skin Health Alliance seal gives, for the first time in the safety industry, professional glove users the confidence that ATG®'s full range of gloves are “dermatologically safe” and the science and research behind them is robust.
We spare no effort in making sure that the ATG® glove experience is a gentle one, both for the user’s skin and for the planet. We do everything we can, from start to finish, to guarantee that our gloves are 100% allergy tested and dermatologically accredited, and can therefore be considered to be the “skin-friendliest gloves on the planet”.
