“Beak Method” Glove Removal Technique

Nitrile gloves are the most commonly used gloves in research laboratories on campus. They are disposable and when properly used, gloves can help protect you from chemical and biological contamination. In addition to being properly used, gloves must be properly removed as well. Improperly removing gloves can potentially expose you to contamination on the outside of the glove. By following the “Beak Method” below, you will safely remove your gloves and significantly reduce the risk from potential exposure.
