High Voltage Gloves

Insulated High Voltage Rubber Gloves

OSHA § 1910.333 Safeguards for Personal Protection (ii) Qualified persons. When a qualified person is working in the vicinity of overhead lines, whether in an elevated position or on the ground, the person may not approach or take any conductive object without an approved insulating handle closer to exposed energized parts than shown in Table S-5 unless: (A) The person is insulated from the energized part (gloves, with sleeves if necessary, rated for the voltage involved are considered to be insulation of the person from the energized part on which the work is performed), or (B) The energized part is insulated both from all other conductive objects at a different potential & from the person, or (C) The person is insulated from all conductive objects at a potential different from that of the energized part Before Each Use:

Inspect gloves and sleeves for holes, rips or tears, ozone cutting, UV checking and signs of chemical deterioration. Defective or suspected defective equipment shall not be used.

Insulating rubber gloves are the first line of protection against electrical shock. Class 00, 0, and 2 gloves are available in a full range of sixes to comfortably fit most employees. In accordance with OSHA Standard 1910.137(b)(2)(xii) Mitchell Instrument Certifies that all gloves are dielectrically tested at time of sale. OSHA also requires gloves be dielectrically tested every 6 months.

OSHA 1910.137 states “Insulating equipment shall be inspected before each day’s use and immediately following any incident that can reasonably be suspected of having caused damage. Insulating gloves shall be given an air test, along with the inspection.” Salisbury’s New G100 (Patent Pending), with G100A adapter for Class 00 and 0 and smaller size gloves, and the G99, without additional adapter, are the perfect answer for inflating your gloves for inspection.

To determine your glove size, measure the circumference around your palm under the knuckles not including the thumb and add 1/2 inch.

 

 
Cracking & Cutting
Shown above is the damage caused by prolonged folding or compressing.
  Chemical Attack
This photo shows swelling caused by oils and other petroleum compounds.
 
Snags
Damage shown here is due to wood and metal splinters and other sharp objects.
  UV Checking
Storing in areas exposed to prolonged sunlight causes UV checking.
 
Avoid Folding Gloves
The strain on rubber at a folded point is equal to stretching the glove to twice its length.
  Avoid Storing Inside Out
Gloves should never be stored inside out. Storing gloves reversed strains the rubber severely and causes ozone cutting.

Leather Glove Protectors

Leather protectors should always be worn over the rubber insulating gloves while in use to get the utmost protection and to prevent mechanical damage to the rubber gloves

(Class '00' and Class '0' Protectors, Class '2' Protectors)
