Do your protective gloves comply with safety standards?

Supplied by ProChoice Safety Gear on Tuesday, 09 June, 2015


Of the workplace hand injuries that require hospitalisation in Australia, more than half involve open wounds. This makes the choice of a cut-protective glove type a key consideration for HSE officers.

But in Australia, protective gloves are not required to comply with local standards via independent verification, allowing some manufacturers to make unsubstantiated declarations of cut resistance. Choosing the right glove means understanding the benefits and features of various products.
