RISK ASSESSMENT

Protective Glove Surveys

As with all PPE, a compressive risk assessment is an essential prerequisite to ensure the correct Protective Glove is supplied and used. We world be pleased to assist in this process,
offering a complete survey service for all your Protective
Glove
and PPE needs.

PERFORMANCE  LEVELS

Differing standards of performance are often indicated by the statement of numbers, typically within the range of 0-5. The lower the number, the lower the performance level.
Example: A glove for general use may show the following performance.

Abrasion Resistance - 2
Blade Cut Resistance - 1
Tear Resistance - 3
Puncture Resistance - 2

This would be shown on the
product as follows
