April 9, 2010, Newsletter Issue #213: Measuring Your Hand For The Correct Fit

Tip of the Week

Like all other items used for industrial protection, industrial safety work gloves have to be properly fitted to ensure maximum hand protection.

When ordering your new work gloves, the measurement of your hand must be taken. To do this, place the measuring tape around widest part of the hand and record this measurement.

The second measurement to take would be the length of your hand. This measurement is achieved by measuring from the middle finger, which is usually the longest, to the beginning of the wrists. Use these measurements to check the manufacturer's recommendation on the size of glove to order.

If your work glove will have special features such as knitted cuff, it is also a good idea to measure the circumference of your wrists as well.
