What should you pay attention to when using electrically insulating gloves?

Electrical insulating gloves are special gloves used to protect workers from electric shock. It has good electrical insulation properties and can effectively block the passage of current, thereby reducing the safety risks of workers when performing electrical work. However, certain precautions need to be followed when using electrically insulating gloves to ensure their effectiveness and safety. The following will introduce the things you need to pay attention to when using electrically insulating gloves for your reference.

1. Choose appropriate electrical insulating gloves: Select the corresponding electrical insulating gloves according to the voltage level required in the workplace. Electrically insulating gloves are available in different voltage levels, and different levels of gloves can withstand different voltage ranges, so it is important to choose the right gloves.

2. Check the integrity of the gloves: Before using electrically insulating gloves, carefully check the appearance of the gloves for damage, cracks, perforations and other defects to ensure the integrity of the gloves. If you notice any signs of damage or wear on your gloves, replace them immediately.

3. Clean gloves: Before using electrically insulating gloves, make sure the gloves are clean. Dirt, dust, etc. on the surface of the gloves will affect the insulation performance of the gloves, so the gloves should be cleaned before use. Wash gloves with detergent and water, then dry.

4. Use insulating mats or insulating floors: When performing electrical work, lay out insulating mats or choose to use insulating floors in the work area. Insulated mats or insulated floors can provide additional protection by reducing the conduction of electrical current and reducing the risk of electric shock to workers.

5. Avoid contact with powered parts: When using electrically insulating gloves, avoid direct contact between the gloves and powered parts. Although electrically insulating gloves can block the passage of electrical current, prolonged contact with powered components may damage the gloves and reduce their insulating properties.

6. Do not use in humid environments: Electrical insulating gloves are not suitable for use in humid environments because moisture will reduce the insulation properties of the gloves. Using electrically insulating gloves in wet environments may cause electrical current to pass through the gloves more easily, increasing the risk of electric shock to workers.

7. Pay attention to the usage time: Electrical insulating gloves have a service life, generally 6 months to 1 year. Therefore, before using electrically insulating gloves, you should check the gloves' markings to understand their service life and replace them according to their lifespan.

8. Proper storage: When electrically insulating gloves are not in use, they should be stored properly. Gloves should be placed in a dry, ventilated place away from sunlight and chemicals to prevent aging and damage to the gloves.
