Comprehensive guide to hand protection

Honeywell has published a free technical guide to the key regulations and standards that health and safety professionals need to comply with to ensure that workers’ hands are protected. ‘Key regulations and standards to look out for when the hands need protection’ pays special attention to recent and forthcoming regulatory changes to glove standards, particularly those related to chemical protective gloves.

The guide examines the specific standards applying to gloves that are tested to protect the hands in various applications. Special attention is paid to the most recent changes to EN 374, the most important standard governing chemical protective gloves, including the way in which gloves are categorised according to their ability to protect against specific chemicals. The guide also explains important standards for gloves, such as those relating to working in extreme heat and cold, protection against ionising radiation and anti-static gloves.
