If you're involved with managing safety and worker protection, you know personal protection equipment is one area that can't be sacrificed. Specifically, when it comes to hand protection and cut resistance, standard test methods are needed to guarantee workers are receiving the best protection possible.

ANSI/ISEA 105 is used primarily in the U.S. while EN388 is common across Europe and other markets adhering to the CE certification process. Need to brush up on these standards?
