April 30, 2010, Newsletter Issue #216: ANSI/ISEA 105-2005 Standard

Tip of the Week

The American National Standard Institute (ANSI), and the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA), have published the standard entitled, “American National Standard for Hand Protection Selection Criteria,” or ANSI/ISEA 105-2005.

As a revision to the previous standard published in 2000, the ANSI and the ISEA have released the main criteria to determine how well a work glove will protect your hands.

Two new guidelines were added to the revised standard. The first guideline outlined the process in which to choose a safety glove for tasks involving vibration to the hand or wrists. The second guideline, added to the revised standard, can be used to select gloves to deal with biohazards or radiation.

The ISEA has been operational in the United States since 1933, and members of the association manufacture safety equipment to almost every industry.
