This standard addresses the classification and testing of hand protection for specific performance properties related to impact-resistance
DEFINITION AND REQUIREMENTS
Protection against mechanical hazards is expressed by a number.
a) 1 to 3 – Resistance to Impact. Classification level for impact resistance (ANSI/ISEA 138-2019) is based on the lowest performance level recorded.
The scale goes from 1-3, level 1 being applicable for people encountering less-probable impact, while level 3 is applicable for people encountering more impact in their workplace.
