Is It Acceptable To Wear Multiple Layers Of Gloves?

Wearing multiple layers of gloves is acceptable in certain circumstances. In medical settings, for example, it is common practice to wear two pairs of gloves – one underneath the other – in order to ensure maximum protection against germs and a more secure grip on things like instruments.

In other applications, such as those related to food handling or when dealing with hazardous materials, wearing two layers can also provide additional protection.

It’s important to note, though, that putting on too many layers could cause moisture and heat buildup, which can make them less effective or even counterproductive.
