Abstract: The safety departments of 31 mines were visited, and the data obtained was used to determine to what extent safety gloves were being used in the gold mining industry. The frequency of occurrence of hand injuries amongst black workers of the gold mining industry has led to the introduction of various types of safety gloves by mine managements. These gloves were not always satisfactory nor very popular amongst the black labourers and the major reasons for this state of affairs will be discussed in the report
