In 2008, the Oil & Gas Safety Committee, represented by ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Halliburton, and other industry leaders, put out a call-to-action to the industrial safety market asking them to solve their industry’s biggest problem: hand safety. Eye, head, and foot safety had been addressed, but hand injuries still represented more than 70% of all job site injuries. These injuries not only caused serious harm to their employees, but they also cost significant amounts of money and lost productivity. Ironclad Performance Wear and the Oil & Gas Safety Committee joined forces to address this problem. The KONG brand is the result of this collaboration. At Ironclad we are constantly stationed on oil platforms, getting feedback from front line workers, to make sure that we solve real-world problems. We began with the KONG Original, and now have a complete line of over twenty patented glove models, each engineered to address the needs of oilfield workers worldwide.
