Resumen In many industrial sectors, workers use protective gloves against mechanical hazards in the presence of contaminants such as oils or greases. Such contamination can, however, reduce the resistance of the gloves to mechanical hazards. This study was undertaken to evaluate the extent of this phenomenon on cut, puncture and tear resistance properties of a range of gloves after their contact with a series of industrial contaminants and to compare the results to measured values on new gloves. It also examines the effects of glove washing. Findings are discussed. The collected data will be incorporated into a protective glove selection guide currently being developed, which users can consult on the IRSST's web site.
