Ansell Impact Protection

WHAT ARE IMPACT GLOVES? REDUCE IMPACT INJURIES

Impact gloves are a type of personal protection equipment (PPE) designed to prevent the occurrence of hand injuries in occupations where high impact is a risk. Whether you work in the oil and gas industry, mining, or manufacturing, impact-resistant gloves are essential to the safety of the work environment. 

OSHA estimates that 71% of all hand injuries could be prevented with the appropriate use of PPE, specifically safety gloves. The hazardous and unpredictable environments associated with certain occupations can result in serious hand injuries. These injuries which occur from not wearing gloves are not only painful but also cost both the employee and employer time and money. According to the National Safety Council, a hand injury can cost between $540 to $26,000.1

Without wearing the correct impact protective gloves, workers could break one of the 27 bones in the hand and potentially damage muscles, tendons, and ligaments. That is why the right type of impact gloves are an essential investment to make before an injury occurs, to ensure employees are healthy, safe, and efficient. 

 

HOW IMPACT GLOVES WORK: 

RINGERS® impact gloves from Ansell provide hand protection against occupational impact hazards in a variety of ways. The RINGERS® signature impact protection system uses thermoplastic rubber, called TPR, which disperses impact energy, reducing the force of impact and impact injuries on fragile bones. Each thermoplastic rubber TPR glove is fine-tuned to maintain dexterity, flexibility, and comfort, without compromising protection from impact hazards. See the two tables below for a further understanding of how gloves including impact protection work.

Design of impact protective gloves

Glove Designs: TPR Cross Section

Each piece of our thermoplastic rubber is securely stitched to the backside of the hand. To maintain a full range of motion, our designs meticulously follow the anatomy of the hand. Our TPR is constructed in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit the purpose and use of the gloves. Heavy-duty jobs require more extensive impact protection covering a larger portion of hands than lighter-duty jobs.
