MAINTENANCE OF DIELECTRIC GLOVES
It is of vital importance that operators make use of the pertinent personal protective equipment in perfect conditions to prevent electrocution, burns due to contact or electric arc and even death. Dielectric gloves are an essential personal protective element that protect workers from a possible electric shock during direct or indirect contact with a live point. They are used for performing tasks involving low and medium voltage electric lines, and they also serve as a barrier in operations involving lines, equipment and circumstances where, due to fortuitous causes, the worker may be exposed to dangerous voltages or the systems may accidentally become live.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CONSERVATION AND TESTING OF INSULATING GLOVES
Insulating gloves for live works are personal protective equipment that prevent electrical risk and are classified in category III (life-threatening risk) as per Directive 89/686/EEC. The reference standards (EN 60903 and CEI 60903) define the RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE AND TESTING.
CLASS O AND OO GLOVES
CLASS 1 to 4 GLOVES
THE DEFINITION OF THE USEFUL SERVICE LIFE OF A GLOVE DOES NOT PRECLUDE IN ANY WAY THE RECOMMENDATIONS IN TERMS OF PERIODIC CHECKS
