ANSI ISEA 105 PDF

Exposure to needlesticks run you the risk of not only injury but bloodborne disease — just one stick and the fear of contracting Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV is stunningly real. Understanding the standard and the need for it is imperative in helping to ensure workers are wearing the proper needle-resistant personal protective equipment PPE , such as gloves or arm guards, while on the job. What is the Needlestick Resistance Standard? However, due to the bluntness of the probe, the puncture test was inadequate for determining needlestick-specific resistance and in no way represented the danger of a hypodermic needle. The ASTM F recognizes needlestick incidents as a common potential exposure risk for the law enforcement, medical, sanitation, and recycling industries. How the standard is labeled: Though manufacturers are not required to label needle puncture scores, needlestick-resistant gloves will be marked on the label or glove branding with their ASTM F test score from level , with the Newtons score sometimes added as well.

The Bottom Line While there are many options when it comes to needlestick-resistant materials, no one material or glove will protect from all needlestick hazards. No material is needlestick proof. Because work conditions vary from one job to another, there is no way to tell how effective a particular safety glove will be without testing it in the field against the actual hazards encountered in the workplace. Testing standards should be used as a guide to help choose gloves, and field-testing should be done before any new gloves are implemented.

Together, we can face the needlestick crisis head-on, regardless of your industry.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics backs this up by reporting over , hand-related workplace injuries in There are many ways to injure hands on the job, through cuts and punctures from work equipment, as well as hands being crushed from the impact of heavy machinery. Hand injuries, while not fatal, can be costly to both the workplace and the person injured. People use their hands every day for the most simple and mundane tasks. Workers can take care of their hands by not only being aware of workplace surroundings, but also by taking the extra precaution of wearing impact-resistant gloves. It specifically focuses on back-of-the-hand protection by dissipating impact from the knuckles and fingers.
