Precautions when testing water

So I have a question about any precautions that you guys normally take when you’re testing your pool water. I use the tailor 2006C test kit to do my testing. I don’t normally wear any type of glove when testing. Of course I do avoid getting any of the Chemicals on my hands and when I’m done I rinse them out in the sink by holding the test tube at about a 45° angle and let water run out the top to dilute the chemicals for about 3 to 5 seconds. Question is, should I be more concerned and wear some kind of hand protection?

I do use the speech to her as well and I dump out the magnetic pill into my hand after that and rinse it a bit more...

Everything is harmless. Rinse up, clean your testing equipment well with rinse water and wash your hands.......Done!
