West Chester® R2™ Brand Rigger Safety Gloves

The word rigging is a noun, a verb, the equipment and action of designing and installing the equipment, in the preparation to move objects. Riggers design, install and attach the lifting or rolling equipment to cranes, block and tackles or other  material-handling machinery using shackles, cables, chains, clamps, straps, employing pulleys, winches, lifts or chain hoists (aka chain motors) to equipment needed to raise, roll, slide or lift objects. Rigging is a common work process on shipyard and construction sites, among others.

Performing rigging operations safely is critical to team success and personal safety. More often than not tough jobs such as rigging put hands at serious risk of impact injury and cuts. One miscalculation or mishap can easily and quickly crush bones in the hands and fingers delaying the project’s completion.  

The work gloves required to protect riggers need to be highly specialized with back of hand protection that does not impede performance. Engineered specifically for heavy-duty applications, impact-resistant gloves set the standard for back of hand protection by combining high-density impact resistant knuckle protectors with the most advanced coated seamless knit glove technologies.

With all the different options available, it can be a bit overwhelming to correctly choose a safety glove. This is where these three Hi-Viz ANSI Safety Rated West Chester® R2™ Gloves from PIP® (Protective Industrial Products) brand of products can help capture safety protocols.
