In case you haven’t heard, the American National Standard for Performance and Classification for Impact-Resistant Work Gloves (ANSI/ISEA 138-2019) was officially released. This voluntary North American standard provides a uniform and accurate classification system for impact protection across all industrial work glove manufacturers and makes it easier for industries where impact protection for the hands is critical.

Over the past decade, the market for impact-resistant gloves has grown tremendously. As such, the materials technology for impact-resistant gloves has grown as well, resulting in a glut of products offering back-of-hand protection and little information on how best to choose between them.

Standardized testing methods provide dependable, clear classifications that enable purchasers to make better-informed decisions and ultimately provide superior protection to end users. Is your glove ANSI ISEA 138 Impact Certified?
