As workplace safety continues to be a top priority for employers and employees alike, the importance of selecting the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) cannot be overstated. Regarding hand protection, the new ANSI Cut Standards provide a valuable tool for selecting the right cut-resistant gloves for the job.
The first step to effectively using the new ANSI Cut Standards is to understand the numeric scale that ranks gloves based on their level of cut resistance. From A1 to A9, gloves are ranked based on their ability to protect against cuts from various blades and materials. A9 provides the highest level of protection, while A1 offers the lowest.
However, simply knowing the ranking system is not enough. To select the appropriate glove, one must consider the specific job or task at hand. Factors such as the level of cut risk, the type of blade or material being used, and the required dexterity must all be taken into account.
By carefully reviewing the new ANSI Cut Standards and consulting with a safety expert, employers can ensure their employees are correctly protected against hand injuries. As an employee, understanding the new ANSI Cut Standards can also help you make informed decisions about the PPE you select for yourself.
Protecting your hands is essential to ensuring your safety and well-being on the job. By using the new ANSI Cut Standards, you can take an important step towards achieving that goal.
