We always encourage our students to look after their tools, as they are crucial to their trade, but maybe in our industry we are guilty of sometimes neglecting the most important tools of all – our hands! Exposure to abrasive materials, harsh weather and overall wear and tear can be damaging to every the most careful of tradespeople.
Thanks to the fine folks at Everbuild – A Stika Company, we got the opportunity to reinforce some good practice about hand care with some of our students, after receiving a box of two of their new products, Wonder Wipes and Hand Armour. The wipes were great at removing a range of different materials from hands, as well as surfaces and tools. The barrier cream is very smooth and great protection for the hands.
These products are really great but as we reminded our students, there’s no substitute for wearing gloves where it is practical and suitable to do so!
