WILL YOUR SAFETY GLOVES MEET THE NEW AUSTRALIAN STANDARD?

Safety Mate has always been serious about preventing hand injuries. That’s why we brought a new standard of glove to the Australian market. Now Australian standards are catching up. The new standard (AS/NZS 2161.3:2020) was published in December 2020 and key features include:

  • more accurate simulation of real life cut dangers
  • an additional cut (TDM-100) rating and an optional impact rating
  • Australian standards mirroring European standard EN388:2016
The NXG range of cut-resistant gloves already meets EN388:2016 and includes 8 Cut Level D glove styles, and 3 Cut Level F models.   We’re ready to assist with risk assessment and hand protection user trials to ensure your workforce are protected.   Contact us to discuss the new standards and to arrange a free site glove audit and trials.
