4. 1. 2. 1 BSEN388 – Mechanical Hazard

Mechanical Hazards are associated with the handling of rough or sharp objects which could abrade, cut or pierce the skin, such as glass, thin metal sheet and masonry blocks.

A mechanical hazard is not associated with moving machinery, in fact it can be extremely dangerous to wear gloves which could catch in moving parts or serrated blades*.

*Note – Gloves should not be used when working with serrated blades. USE GUARDS.

BSEN374 2003 – Chemical Hazard

Whether total immersion or merely splash is involved, any substance which would irritate, inflame or burn the skin is classed as a Chemical Hazard.

Some substances can cause the skin to become sensitised over a period of time while others have a more immediate and painful effect.

The European Norm covering the performance of Chemical Protective Gloves has been revised and is now identified as BSEN 374.2003.

In order that a more informed and relevant glove selection can be made, a list of 12 chemicals, identified by the letters A to L, has been nominated and a manufacturer has to submit gloves to be tested against any 3 of these chemicals before approval is obtained.

Penetration and permeation of the chemical through the glove is measured to determine the breakthrough time.

To gain approval as a “Chemical Resistant” glove, a breakthrough time greater than 30 minutes has to be achieved. The glove can then carry a revised pictogram together with the identification letters of the 3 chemicals against which it was tested.
