Sure, I'd shake his hand. He'd been wearing gloves all day, so what is the problem? If he had dangerous chemicals on his hands, wouldn't he know it by the time he got around to shaking my hand? If he were dealing with viruses rather than chemicals I might be more circumspect.

Certain SOPs like this are taken for granted because the problem and its consequences are neither visible or obvious.

This story needs more detail to be effective; probably some CU animation of what's on his hands that cannot be seen by the naked eye, and an explanation as to why he needs to wash his hands anyway since he was wearing gloves in the first place.

I would not accept a handshake from Dustin if I knew that he had not washed his hands.
