BSEN388 - Mechanical Hazard - 2016

Mechanical Hazards are associated with the handling of rough or sharp objects which could abrade, cut or pierce the skin, such as glass, thin metal sheet and masonry blocks.

A mechanical hazard is not associated with moving machinery, in fact it can be extremely dangerous to wear gloves which could catch in moving parts or serrated blades*.

*Note - Gloves should not be used when working with serrated blades. USE GUARDS.

4 = Abrasion  (Performance Index 1-4)
1 = Blade Cut  (Performance Index 1-5)
2 = Tear  (Performance Index 1-4)
1 = Puncture  (Performance Index 1-4)
X = ISO13997 Cut Protection  (Performance Index X, A, B, C, D, E, F )

Low Chemical Hazard

BSEN374 2003 / BSEN374 2003 / BSEN374 CATIII - Chemical Hazard

Whether total immersion or merely splash is involved, any substance which would irritate, inflame or burn the skin is classed as a Chemical Hazard.

Some substances can cause the skin to become sensitised over a period of time while others have a more immediate and painful effect.

The European Norm covering the performance of Chemical Protective Gloves has been revised and is now identified as BSEN 374.2003. In order that a more informed and relevant glove selection can be made, a list of 12 chemicals, identified by the letters A to L, has been nominated and a manufacturer has to submit gloves to be tested against any 3 of these chemicals before approval is obtained. Penetration and permeation of the chemical through the glove is measured to determine the breakthrough time.

To gain approval as a "Chemical Resistant" glove, a breakthrough time greater than 30 minutes has to be achieved. The glove can then carry a revised pictogram together with the identification letters of the 3 chemicals against which it was tested.

If a glove fails to achieve 30 minutes breakthrough time it can still be classified as a "Low Chemical Resistant" glove and is identified by a different pictogram, this time without the identification letters.

The micro-organism pictogram can be used where the glove performs to at least level 2 for the permeation test i.e. Greater than 30 minutes.
