Choosing the right gloves


As an employer, the safety and health of your workers should be paramount. One of the most common workplace injuries is cuts and lacerations, which can be caused by sharp objects. To avoid such injuries, it is important to provide your workers with cut resistant gloves that offer adequate protection without compromising their performance and comfort.


  • Level of protection needed
  • The material for the task
  • Comfort, breathable and flexible


The first thing to consider is the level of protection needed. Cut resistant gloves are rated on a scale of 0-5, with 5 being the highest level of protection. You should choose gloves with a rating that is appropriate for the hazards in your workplace.

Another important factor to consider is the material of the gloves. Cut resistant gloves are made from a variety of materials, including Kevlar, stainless steel, and high-performance polyethylene. Each material has its own strengths and weaknesses, so it is important to choose the material that is most suitable for your workplace.

Comfort is also important when choosing cut resistant gloves. Workers who are uncomfortable in their gloves are less likely to wear them, which can lead to injuries. Look for gloves that are breathable and flexible, and that fit well.

In conclusion, choosing the right cut resistant gloves is essential to protect your workers hands from sharp objects. By considering the level of protection needed, the material of the gloves, and comfort, you can find gloves that offer the necessary protection while allowing your workers to perform their jobs effectively and comfortably.
