Abstract:

The increasing demand being placed on the human hand to function in new environments requires examination of how performance is affected by the required safety gloves. The objective in this research is to help determine which safety glove or glove types are best suited for particular work situations when there is a choice in the type of safety glove which will satisfy the safety requirements. The performance of ten subjects performing five simulated work tasks under five glove conditions is examined in this report. The five glove conditions consist of barehand and leather, terry cloth, neoprene, and PVC gloves. Author
