Are You Making These Mistakes With Your Cut-Resistant Gloves?

by Joe Geng on October 14, 2015

Comments (0)


Do you work in an industry where you’re exposed to cut threats on the regular? Do you feel like you’re wearing gloves that aren’t protecting you as much as they should be? Well, never fear, we’re here to relieve your worry and walk you through it all.

 

1. Confusing CE and ANSI Cut Levels:

This is the most common and most easily fixable mistake that people make when choosing cut-resistant gloves. We pay attention to the level of cut resistance but don’t focus as much on how the glove was tested. We encourage selecting gloves based on the ANSI/ISEA standard because it’s a more consistent test.

Want more information? Check out our blog the covers the subject more in depth.

 

2. Using Leather Gloves for Everything:

Leather has its time and place and in that time and place, it is amazing! But when it comes to cut resistance, leather doesn’t have cut-resistant properties. In those situations, turn to Kevlar® or Dyneema®. These engineered yarns have good cut resistance without the bulk.

 

3. Not Wearing Comfortable Gloves:

Speaking of bulkiness, companies will choose a glove based on its cut level, durability and price but forget about comfort. Safety compliance has a direct correlation to workers comfort. If they aren’t struggling to complete tasks while wearing their gloves, they won’t have a reason to take them off.

 

4. Choosing the Wrong Cut Level:

More often than not, we see companies go overboard on cut-resistance specifications. The logic is that it’s better to be safe than sorry, but this goes back to point #3 and means you’ll be spending more money on a glove workers hate. Instead, ask your glove manufacturer what glove they would recommend for your application, and what other companies in your industry are using.

 

5. Choosing Cut-Resistant Gloves for the Wrong Application:

Every so often, we’ll get someone asking for a cut-resistant glove to protect against rotating equipment. The reality is that gloves can be more of a hazard than a help in those applications. Look at engineering controls or automation to reduce or eliminate the hazard entirely.

So there you have it: You’re now a cut-resistant glove expert!

Now that you know how to choose the right cut-resistant gloves, check out our 6 Tips for Getting Zero Hand Injuries infographic.
