Who should use ring mesh cut resistant gloves and when?
Industries such as meat processing,textile cutting and sheet metal should use ring mesh cut resistant gloves for cut protection. The most popular user remains
food processing, where anyone who uses a hand knife or cleans/moves a slicer blade can (should) wear a ring mesh cut resistant glove.
It's important to note even ring mesh cut resistant gloves are neither cut-proof nor puncture-proof. They are only cut- and puncture-resistant. But no glove is 100-percent
cut-proof. Ring mesh cut resistant gloves are only designed to be used around hand knives, not powered blades or saws with serrated edges. Warnings on packaging from
almost all manufacturers read something like:
“WARNING: These ring mesh gloves will not withstand the force of power-driven blades, saws, and tools; avoid this hazard.”
“WARNING: These ring mesh gloves could be caught in moving machinery and should not be used where such contact is possible.
