[Histonet] Wearing gloves while cutting sections

While I was on vaction, the safety committee came around and did rounds in the lab.  They sited us for not wearing gloves while cutting sections.  My techs tried to explain to them that we did not have to wear gloves, only when cutting frozen sections or while handling fresh tissue. I have never worn gloves while cutting paraffin sections.  Now my manager wants me to write a policy in regards to not wearing gloves.  Does anyone have anything like this in place that they would be willing to share with me.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.
