Work gloves for the Construction Industry
We like to share knowledge with our clients and partners so we’ve prepared a brief overview of cut protection work gloves.
We’re also identified key safety glasses which is often essential for high-risk environments on a construction site at the bottom of the article.
How is cut protection measured?
Work gloves designed to offer any level of protection, by law, must be tested to EN388 which is a globally recognised standard. The test is broken down into four elements and the combined score represents the overall protective value of the glove. In 2016, EN388 was upgraded to test more rigorously for cut with the addition of the TDM test which more accurately simulates the hazards of an industrial workplace. Industry now recognises the test as EN388:2016.
