Angry be aware of what you wear

interesting item this morning ..... likely to get worse I'd have thought with cheap stuff coming in from all over

HTF do you tell though

" A leading PPE supplier is warning that carcinogenic safety gloves that irritate the skin are still being sold to UK construction workers. "

As you say, how do you tell before it is too late. They imply they are CE marked. Saying you should "challange" your supplier is just so much hot air. What is anyone going to say if you ask?
