Welcome to Appleton Glove Testing | Outagamie County Electrical Glove Testing

Working around electricity is a dangerous occupation, so it’s important to take every precaution to avoid injury or death. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) stipulates that anyone working in the vicinity of energized equipment wear personal protective equipment, including electrical gloves, to protect against electrical currents.

Electrical gloves offer protection against hazards such as electric shock and arc flashes. These rubber insulating gloves are worn beneath leather protectors, which protect the underlying rubber from cuts, punctures, and abrasions. 

Voltage Rated Glove Testing

OSHA requires that voltage-rated gloves be professionally tested before their first use and every six months after on a machine that can detect the smallest of defects. Insulated glove testing must also take place if the electrical gloves have been repaired, used without protectors, a defect in the insulating value is suspected, or the gloves have been tested but not used in the previous 12 months.

After the gloves pass their test, a date is stamped on the glove they are good for the following six months. Additionally, the voltage rated glove user must perform an “inflate” test before each use to ensure there are no air leaks before each use. 

Convenient High Voltage Glove Testing

Because safety is so important in electrical applications, high voltage glove testing by an accredited testing company is the best way to ensure compliance and prevent accidents.
