The Medical Cannabis (Legal Marijuana) Growers
the Protection of their Workers
As operations shift from illegal marijuana growing operations (MGOs) to legal agriculture operations, there is a need to understand the impact on workers, for trimming, cultivation, processing, handling, and inspecting cannabis products.
The worker safety and health hazards of MGOs will be under the changing Federal EPA regulations of Agricultural Worker Protection Standard for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that took effect in 2017, and will be a very important consideration for any large scale Cannabis Grower.
Included in these new regulations are the use of "Medical Grade Disposable gloves" to prevent skin contact during cutting and harvesting operations to reduce the risk of dermal exposure to THC, pesticides and fertilizers.
The keyword here is "Medical Grade".
Don't Be Fooled - By B Grade Industrial Grade Gloves
Also known as off-line gloves. They are not Medical Grade! These are either made to not meet medical gloves standards in the first place, or they fail in pinhole rates or specifications in quality control, and are downgraded from medical grade to B grade. These gloves are usually labeled as disposable gloves and cannot be labeled as medical grade exam gloves, as required by Federal EPA regulations.
