||Chain mail and other cut resistant gloves as protection against powered blades in clothing factories
||HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 6FS, United Kingdom, 1996. 26p. Illus. 2 ref. Price: GBP 10.00.
||A powered circular blade cut test was developed to simulate the effects of a severe accident with a typical cloth cutting device. The test was used to compare the cut resistance of a range of protective gloves. Chain mail gloves provided a significantly higher level of protection against mechanically driven blades than the other products investigated. Knitted aramid, steel reinforced knitted aramid, leather and aramid reinforced leather, and rubber coated knitted cotton gloves all provided negligible protection. The test apparatus and procedure are described and standard cut resistance tests are reviewed.
