According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the potential for hand injury exists for 4.7 million workers and full hand protection compliance could prevent 712,000 lost workdays per year. For many electricians and contractors, the challenge is finding hand protection that offers the dexterity they need as well as mechanical protection to keep them safe.

The Comfort Grip and Gripping Material line of gloves from 3M addresses both needs and is available in three different models, depending on the application required.

The General Use Comfort Grip gloves are ideal for light- to medium-duty jobs that require precision handling. The nitrile palm coating provides excellent grip even in wet or oily conditions and ensures flexibility and abrasion resistance.

The Cut Resistant Comfort Grip gloves are perfect for jobs that require handling abrasive or sharp materials such as cable preparation or wire handling. With an EN388 Cut Level 5 and ANSI Cut Level 3 rating, these gloves provide good cut protection while the nitrile palm again offers excellent grip.

The Gripping Material Work Glove helps users get a better grip on the job. -. Comprised of thousands of micro fingers, the 3M Gripping Material sewn on these gloves provides great grip in dirty, wet or oily conditions. Durable synthetic suede, combined with padded fingers and thumbs adds protection, making these ideal for heavy-duty jobs in factories or on construction sites.
