New global standards for protective gloves are coming. How will they affect your PPE choices?

  Test Your System

Hand injuries are among the most common of work-related injuries. Such injuries are also becoming more costly. According to the National Safety Council, a single hand laceration can cost over $12,000 in direct and related costs; if a tendon is severed, the cost can approach $70,000. When the expense of a single injury can far exceed the full cost of an entire hand protection program, selecting the most effective cut-resistant apparel and PPE becomes an especially critical decision.

The new standards will help you choose the right protection with greater precision and accuracy than before. Proposed changes have been submitted for both the ANSI/ISEA 105 Hand Protection Selection Criteria and the EN 388 European regulatory standard for protective gloves. Everyone involved in the design, development, and specification of cut-resistant apparel and PPE needs to understand the impact of these changes on their selection and purchasing decisions. Join us to find out more and how these proposed changes might affect your choices.
