Electrical Gloves FAQs

Rubber-insulating gloves are the preferred choice of gloves for electrical work of all kinds, as they are generally designed to protect against electrical hazards. Workers should always be properly equipped with the right combination of rubber-insulating gloves and leather protectors because it only takes exposure to electricity greater than 500 volts to cause serious damage to the human body and organs. To eliminate workplace injuries or fatalities, it is important to understand the adverse side effects of electrical exposure prior to performing any electrical work.
When working with electricity, it’s considered standard practice to first perform lockout-tagout procedures to prevent unexpected energization, as this is the greatest form of control against electrical hazards. Whether you engage in electric work on a construction site, as a utility worker, or even in your home improvement projects, there are many kinds of glove systems and combinations to consider. At Ansell, we generally recommend wearing leather protector gloves over rubber-insulating gloves, especially when protection from cuts, punctures, abrasion, and other kinds of external damage is necessary.
In any situation where the nature of electrical hazards may vary, workers should wear gloves that are rated for both arc flash and flame resistance. The automotive industry, for example, has become more complex over the years and now involves more parts and electrical components than ever before. Since 2017, the electric vehicle (EV) market has seen tremendous growth, with EVs becoming a more viable option for new car buyers. For manufacturing workers, this has led to an increased need for protection from electric shock, arc flash, and other heat-related workplace injuries. To meet these modern specifications, Ansell offers a unique range of electrical safety gloves that are stringently tested in accordance with NFPA 70E Arc Flash requirements to deliver additional heat resistance and protection against hazards such as electrocution and electrical burns.

Choosing the right electric gloves may seem daunting at first, but it is much easier than it seems. Firstly, it is important to determine the maximum voltage that you may be exposed to, then choose a class of glove rated at or above that voltage.
