Ansell Hosts Online Cut Protection Challenge

During the month of February, hand protection and safety apparel manufacturer Ansell Healthcare is hosting the "U Challenge," an online interactive cut protection selection game available to play for free at AnsellU.com. Safety industry professionals who register and play during this month are eligible to win a free Nintendo® Wii gaming system in March.

The game advances players through an automotive plant scenario where the user must select a glove and then see how many pieces of metal the virtual worker can stamp without experiencing an injury. Players may select from a variety of gloves and have the option to use bare hands. Each glove option is accompanied by cut protection levels and ratings indicating dexterity, abrasion and puncture resistance, and dry and oil grip.

"The U Challenge employs the hottest gaming technology to help players understand the importance of selecting the proper cut protection for every situation," said Keitha Kessler, marketing manager, Ergo Products. "Players will find the game challenging and interesting as they work through the scenario."

Ansell first introduced the game during the National Safety Congress & Expo in Chicago in October 2007.
