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.
Whether you're located in the U.S. or across the globe, industries usually rely on one of two predominate level cut resistance classification systems; ANSI/ISEA 105 or EN388. 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? Ansell has developed a guide to everything you need to know about the standards and how changes could impact interpretation of cut protection in the future. Check out the following for more information on the standards and how they could impact your worker's safety: http://www.ansell.com/en/Campaigns/HyFlex-Intercept-Point/INTERCEPT...
