Which Glove Safety Ratings Apply To You?

cut-resistant-gloves

Glove ratings can be a useful piece of information when it comes to selecting the right gloves for you.  However, the key is to pay attention to the right glove rating when choosing a glove that is right for your specific job.  There are several tests for work gloves that determine the ratings, but which rating is the most important for your task, the test for cut, punctures, abrasion or dexterity?  Reviewing the test standards for safety gloves can give you a crash course in selecting the perfect glove for your workplace.

For cut, the test is simple.  ANSI uses a sharp metal blade that moves across the glove material until it cuts through.  The ratings for cut range from 0 to 5, 0 for less than 200 grams and 5 for over 3500 grams.

Choosing the right puncture test can be a little more complicated.  Puncture tests make use of very different sized probes, a large nail, a small nail and a hypodermic needle.  To choose which test best applies to you, you must consider your specific safety requirement. Continue Reading…

Specialized Gloves Are Needed for Specialized Skills

Specialized Work Gloves

Employers these days are moving away from generalization, and placing an emphasis on hiring workers who have specialized skills. According to Forbes magazine, people without specialized skills are finding it harder and harder to find work.

Just like the trend toward needing specialized skills, there is a trend toward needing specialized work gloves. More than anything, it was a court case that demonstrated this need. Recently in the UK, a city sanitation worker successfully sued his employer and was awarded more than $150,000 in personal injury damage, for a cut he suffered at work while sifting through a pile of trash. The employee was wearing gloves provided by his employer when he cut himself on a sharp object hidden in the pile of trash, but the court ruled that his employer had provided him with “the wrong type of gloves.” Continue Reading…

New Ideas On Cut Resistant Glove Technology

A lot can change in 15 years. A lot has changed in 15 years. Social media websites like Facebook and Twitter have become an everyday part of life for most Americans. The hybrid car has gone from design-floor dream to viable option for the average person. And cut protection for your hands has gone from one single option to many.

In 1997, para-aramid was the fiber for cut-protection gloves. This yellow fiber wasn’t just a valuable asset for workplace protection of your hands, it was the only valuable asset for workplace protection of your hands. But like social media sites and hybrid cars, times have changed. Now, even though para-aramid continues to be an industry leader, the alternative options have exploded. Continue Reading…

Cut Resistant Glove Ratings: The Case for ASTM Ratings

Protect Your Hands With Cut Resistant Work Gloves

It might not be as commonplace as the debate over Metric System or English System, or as fun as Boxers or Briefs, but if you wear safety gloves in your line of work, it’s certainly no less important. Glove Cut Level Ratings are something you just plain have to pay attention to. And it’s important to know how to protect your hands with the correct safety gloves.

There are two different ratings methods for glove cut resistance: the EN (European standard) or ASTM. If your company is looking to implement a cut-resistant glove program, or improve an existing one, the ASTM method is the better choice. It is more representative of workplace conditions than the EN method. Continue Reading…
