The two main governing bodies for hand safety standards are the United States and Europe. The U.S. standard for PPE mechanical performance testing is called the ANSI/ISEA 105 standard, which includes cut resistance testing (as well as abrasion, puncture, and needlestick).


The European Union uses the EN388 standard to test mechanical properties like cut resistance (as well as abrasion, tear, puncture, and impact). After testing, a CE (Conformité Européenne) certification is granted to verify a product has properly been tested and reported.


2.The level of cut resistance 

 A glove is assigned a cut level of 0 to 9 (with 9 being the most cut resistant)ANSI categorized gloves into nine different levels of cut resistance. This scale was refined in 2016 to allow further distinctions.


· Cut level 1: Very low cut hazards. These gloves will protect your hands from things like paper cuts and light scratches, but aren’t guaranteed against actual blades.


· Cut level 2: Low cut hazards. They are suitable for jobs that generally don’t involve sharp objects, such as car maintenance or landscaping work.


· Cut level 3: Moderate cut hazards. Cut level 3 gloves provide protection for light glass handling and metal stamping jobs.


· Cut level 4: High cut hazards. This is a good level of protection for most construction work, automotive assembly, or packaging jobs.


· Cut level 5: Medium cut hazards. These include most glass handling and metal stamping jobs, as well as food service.


· Cut level 6:High cut hazards.For sharp metal handling and sharp metal stamping.


· Cut level 7:Higher cut hazard.The workers in the window manufacturing industry need.


· Cut level 8 Extreme cut hazards.For automotive assembly,metal fabrication and glass manufacturing.


· Cut level 9:Highest cut hazards.These gloves are used for jobs that involve very sharp blades, such as a meat butcher, and for heavy metal stamping and plate glass work.


You can depend on the cut level to choose the most appropriate gloves.

3.Cut resistant materials

Cut-resistant gloves come in various styles, and they also can be made from different materials. Additionally, their safety levels are rated and tested based on standards that are set by the American National Standards Institute’s ASTM F2992 cut test.
