What was the rationale behind them citing you for not wearing gloves?

Subject: [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.
