    Dear Community,

    Is there a regulation or law that requires wearing of gloves when climbing or doing installation work on towers?

    There are a lot of climbers that does feel safe wearing gloves when moving about on the tower or when handling tools.

    What are your thoughts about this?

    They are on OSHA requirement for tower climbing. However, when in place working and you have tiny parts I take mine off, unless I just want to drop stuff. When I move again I put my gloves on again.
