Focus on cut protection

Hand injuries are among the most common occupational accidents. And among these, cut injuries again occupy first place. This makes it clear how important it is to focus on optimum cut protection in the workplace.

Cut protection important in many applications

Cut protection is indisputably important wherever sharp knives are used. For example, in the food industry, in agriculture or even in the kitchens of this world. But not only there. Hands are also at risk when working with glass, handling sheet metal, assembling and repairing machinery, working with cardboard and paper and, last but not least, in waste disposal and in construction, road building and horticulture.

Grip and breathability important

Cut protection gloves are available in many different designs and with different degrees of protection. Other features include suppleness, grip safety and dexterity, as well as good breathability, since this type of hand protection often has to be worn for long periods of time.

Cut protection gloves must meet EN Standard

Like all other protective gloves against mechanical hazards, cut-resistant gloves must comply with the European Standard EN 388:2016. This standard describes the requirements placed on protective work gloves against mechanical risks. The tests include abrasion resistance, cut resistance, tear resistance (e.g. after a cut) and puncture resistance.

Cut protection suitable for the respective hazard

The right glove can be selected on the basis of a workplace assessment and hazard analysis. Level B indicates light cut protection, levels C and D correspond to medium cut protection, and levels E and F correspond to a rather high cut protection level. The base materials of cut protection gloves are often blended fabrics specifically designed for cut protection, such as those with HPPE, steel fibers or aramid

Cut protection gloves professionals buy from Original MRUK®

Because cut protection is required in many applications, the right glove often needs to have other features, such as increased abrasion resistance. Protection against oils or chemicals can be further requirements, in which case a look must always be taken at the hazardous substances used. Last but not least, the fit and quality of workmanship are crucial to ensure that the gloves can reliably do their job for as long as possible and that the wearer feels well protected. You will find an extensive selection of cut protection gloves at Original MRUK®.
