Protect the Tools You Can’t Replace : Practical & Comfortable Extreme Cut-Resistant Gloves From Superior Glove®

If your job entails safety, then you most likely already know the greatest work-related injury to the hands are from lacerations which accounts for roughly 63% of workplace hand injuries. A simple internet search can have you reading  hand injury statistics for days but just know this, cuts send over one million workers to the emergency room every year.

The hands are among a worker's most valuable tools. Typically used to grip or steady structures, the non-dominant hand easily crosses into the danger zones putting the hands and fingers at risk to injury. Lacerations can range in severity from a small cut to the amputation of fingers or the entire hand. These can occur anywhere, anytime and with any number of pieces of equipment.

What are the primary causes of these injuries? The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports more than 70 percent of workers experiencing hand injuries were not wearing gloves at the time. And the remaining 30 percent of injured workers were not wearing the right type of glove. The cost of one incident that could have been prevented by workers wearing the right glove often far exceeds the cost of an entire hand protection program. The National Safety Council offers the following as a guide:

  • Direct cost of a laceration: $10,000
  • Stitches: $2,000 plus indirect
  • Butterfly: $300
  • Severed Tendon: > $70,000

Lost time, costly expenses and workers who can no longer do their job tasks are a few of the many reasons hand injuries are a real issue for the glove industry.

Work Gloves Are Proven to Reduce the Risk of Injury by 60 Percent!

Selecting the proper industrial work safety glove is critical to one’s personal safety and overall productivity. If work gloves are too bulky, hot or cumbersome, they are typically removed or never worn. It’s also imperative that the proper glove is correctly matched to the task. Many workers are demanding improved comfort, fit and dexterity from their work gloves forcing engineers to seek new materials and innovative ways to manufacture gloves.

Industrial work safety gloves, particularly cut-resistant gloves, have benefited from these new technological innovations.  Replacing cotton, stainless steel mesh, leather and synthetic yarn are gloves manufactured from engineered fibers such as TenActiv™ or Dyneema® yarns and incorporate palm dipped polymer coatings. Applying various coatings to a glove’s shell can enhance cut protection and grip.

Industrial cut-resistant gloves are rated from ANSI Level A1 to A9; A1 cut resistance is designed to protect against threats such as paper cuts whereas A9 protects against the industry's most extreme cut hazards within:

Automotive Assembly

Metal Fabrication

Metal Handling

Glass Manufacturing

Metal Stamping


Recycling Plant/Sorting

Remember, cut-proof gloves don't exist; these A9 gloves offer the industry's highest level of cut-resistance and lacerations can happen even when wearing cut-resistant rated gloves. If a top-level A9 glove doesn't fully prevent a cut, it's usually because it prevented a more severe injury. For example a lost finger becomes a couple stitches, or several stiches become a band-aid.
