Each symbol represents a different type of hazard and the numbers underneath indicate how well the safety glove performed in tests, the higher the number the better the performance. Each of our gloves displays a symbol to indicate it's suitability.

This page provides a brief summary of what the various safety glove markings mean in practice. While this will help in selecting the correct work glove for a particular application, the actual conditions of use cannot be simulated. It is therefore the responsibility of the end user and not the manufacturer or retailer to ensure the safety glove is suitable for its intended use.
