Infographic: What is Standard EN374:2003?
There are a number of hazards in the workplace that make using the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) a necessity.
At Globus we are committed to ensuring the protection of your hands and forearms from hazards such as cuts, abrasions, impacts, prolonged immersion in water, temperature extremes and chemicals. We do this by providing in-depth and bespoke hand protection assessments, and implementing solutions consisting of high quality safety work gloves from the SHOWA and SKYTEC ranges.
CEN (the European Committee for Standardisation) developed a number of industry standards to assist both manufacturers, suppliers and users in developing and understanding glove properties. This includes the EN374:2003 standard for protective gloves against chemicals and microorganisms.
In the infographic below we explain how chemical resistant gloves are tested in this particular standard and what the pictograms mean that are used to depict the results.
