Supplier: Ansell Healthcare

Radiation sickness, skin burns, cataracts, hair loss, cancer and even death.

Yes, Dorothy, you’re not in Kansas anymore. Where you are, in fact, is your workplace – and these are the risks healthcare professional s (HCPs) face from over-exposure to ionising radiation.

Even low doses can damage your DNA and lead to cancer or genetic mutations.

Yes, it’s frightening stuff. And obviously something not to be mucked around with.

Surgical safety gloves expert Ansell goes hand in glove with your hospital and clinic requirements when it comes to hand protection from ionising radiation during fluoroscopy procedures.
