Rubber insulating gloves have always been one of the most important components of PPE for electrical and industrial workers. The recent updates and changes in ASTM D120 and NFPA 70E have brought this product segment into the spotlight.
The natural rubber construction offers excellent dielectric properties combined with flexibility, strength, and durability. Other features include a contoured shape which reduces hand fatigue and rolled cuff for increased durability during donning and doffing.
Rubber gloves are tested and date stamped before they leave the factory. Once in use, gloves should be inspected daily and should be retested by a laboratory every 6 months.
Salisbury recommends an alternating glove color program to assure all gloves are in the proper test cycle per OSHA and ASTM requirements. This program creates a visual reminder of the test cycle period by using one glove color for the first test period and a different color for the following test period. Continue alternating these two colors when a new test period begins. For example: Red Class 00 gloves are worn for first test cycle period, then black Class 00 gloves are worn during the second test cycle period.

Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
