How to select right hand gloves?

The selection of most suitable hand gloves is very important to avoid hand injuries caused by physical or chemical hazards. Here is the quick guide to selecting hand gloves.

Identify the hazards associated with your job, i.e. the type of substance / chemicals to be handled or the type of work to be performed.

Identify the nature of the contact (total immersion, splash, etc.) and the duration of the contact. It is also important to identify the area that needs protection, i.e. only the hand or that also requires protection of the forearm.

Some jobs require a good grip to hold the object, because the object can be wet or oily. If you are handling a hot material or there is potential to contact with hot surfaces, the thermal protection factor must be taken into account.

When choosing gloves, the physical nature of the object should be considered, such as sharp edges, plates, size, etc. to protect your hand from cut injuries and therefore abrasion resistant gloves may be needed.

In summary, follow the following normal practices for selecting gloves.


Leather hand gloves: welding, cutting, grinding, handling hot objects, sharp edge objects and rough objects. It protects against sparks, moderate heat, blows, chips and rough objects.
