Our glove management program can eliminate the headaches of managing your glove testing program.
OSHA standards (1910.137) provide the design requirements and in-service care and use requirements for electrical-insulating gloves and sleeves. Before gloves can be issued, they must be tested. Then, gloves and sleeves must have regular testing per 1910.137(b)(2). OSHA requires that “protective equipment be maintained in a safe, reliable condition.” Therefore, gloves and sleeves should be inspected for damage before each day’s use and immediately following an incident that may have caused damage.
Regular Testing Requirements
- Rubber Gloves are to be dielectrically tested every 6 months.
- Rubber Sleeves are to be dielectrically tested every 12 months.
