Insulating Rubber Gloves – Inspection & Storage

Posted on

It is vital to the safety of workers that all insulating rubber gloves be visibly inspected before each use. Insulating glove inspection requirements differ with each Class of glove (read more about Insulating Glove Classes).

Learn how to correctly and safely store insulating rubber gloves.

For Classes 0 and 00 insulating gloves the test consists of air inflation and visual inspection while the glove is inflated. (No dielectric test required, but can be performer on request.)

Classes 1, 2, 3 and 4 insulating gloves can not be used (even when in storage) without being tested within the last 6 months, with normal testing periods between 30 and 90 days. It is also recommended that the inside of the gloves be inspected before use. All Class 1, 2, 3 and 4 insulating gloves should be stored in their packaging, without being compressed or folded, away from a heat source with temperature of 10-21 degrees Celcius.
