Hand Protection: Types & Benefits of Hand Protection PPE

By Shabbir Zahid 0 comments


There is a wide range of leather gloves made from high-quality leather sourced from Sialkot, Pakistan. Sialkot is known for producing some of the best leather gloves in the world. Our gloves are certified to meet EN 388 standards for mechanical protection. EN 388 is a European standard that evaluates the performance of gloves against mechanical hazards such as abrasion resistance, blade cut resistance, tear resistance, and puncture resistance.

Types of Hand Protection

  • Gloves

Gloves are one of the most common forms of hand protection and come in different materials, for example, leather, rubber, and synthetic materials like nitrile and latex. Gloves can provide protection from mechanical hazards, chemical hazards, heat, and cold.

For example, leather gloves are to protect against abrasions, cuts, and punctures, while rubber gloves are suitable for protecting against chemicals and electrical hazards.

  • Hand Guards

Hand guards are typically used together with the power tools to prevent hand injuries, to fit over the hand and provide a barrier between the hand and tool, preventing injuries.

  • Arm Protection

Arm protection is also essential in the construction industry, as workers may be expose to hazards that could cause cuts or punctures to the arm. Arm protection comes in the form of sleeves made from materials such as Kevlar or leather, which can provide protection against cut injuries and punctures.

Benefits of Hand Protection

  • Reduced Risk of Injury

The primary benefit of hand protection is that it reduces the risk of injury. By wearing the appropriate hand protection, workers can protect themselves against cuts, punctures, abrasions, and chemical exposure.

  • Increased Productivity

Work more efficiently without fear of injury. Increases productivity and reduces downtime caused by hand injuries.

  • Compliance with Regulations

Employers can ensure compliance with the regulations and can avoid legal issues by providing workers with the appropriate hand protection.

  • Improved Comfort

Hand protection is comfortable and lightweight, allowing workers to perform their tasks without discomfort. Improve job satisfaction and reduce turnover rates.

  • Cost Savings

It is a small price to spend on hand protection compared to the cost of treating a hand injury. Hand injuries can result in medical bills, lost wages, and workers' compensation claims, which can be costly for employers.


Properties of leather 

Leather is a natural material well known for its durability and strength and is a popular choice for protective gloves used in industrial and construction work. Leather is particularly effective for abrasion resistance due to its unique physical properties.

The fibers in leather give the material high tensile strength and make it resistant to tearing and wear. This interlocking also provides excellent resistance to abrasion, as the tightly woven fibers create a barrier that can withstand repeated rubbing and scraping against rough surfaces without breaking down.

In addition to its inherent strength, leather can be treated with various finishing processes to enhance its abrasion resistance and prolong its lifespan in harsh environments. For example, leather can be treated with oils, waxes, or other chemicals to increase its resistance to water, dirt, and abrasion.

Leather is breathable and can regulate temperature and moisture, keeping the wearer's hands cool and dry. 

Leather gloves are useful in the industrial or construction industry with high temperatures or humid conditions for extended periods.

Finally, leather gloves offer excellent grip and dexterity, allowing workers to handle tools and materials safely and efficiently. The texture of leather provides a secure grip, which can reduce the risk of accidents and injuries caused by slipping or dropping objects.

Overall, the combination of leather's natural strength, its resistance to abrasion and wear, and its breathability, grip, and dexterity make it an excellent choice for protective gloves in construction, manufacturing, and heavy machinery operations.
