ANSI/ISEA 138-2019, the American National Standard for Performance and Classification for Impact-Resistant Hand Protection, is proving to be a game-changer for PPE standards. ANSI/ISEA 138 establishes minimum performance, classification and labeling requirements. Plus, it incorporates performance levels from 1 to 3, clearly identified with mandatory pictograms.

Attend to learn:

  • About dorsal, back-of-hand injuries such as bone breakage and fractures, bruising and finger pinching
  • Key components of the ANSI/ISEA impact resistant hand protection standard
  • How standard-compliant gloves dissipate impact forces on the knuckles and fingers, and the classes of protection
  • How to select impact-resistant hand protection for the tasks being performed

Bonus research briefing:

Clear Seas Research conducted exclusive research on the most common hand hazards in the workplace, criteria for matching gloves to hazards, and technologies safety pros are using to enhance workplace safety. We will discuss safety professionals’ current most pressing concerns regarding hand protection, types of gloves most frequently worn by workers, and technologies considered valuable by safety pros.
