10. GLOVES Work gloves must comply with European directives. Compliance with these directives is indicated in appropriate locations, often combined with pictograms that indicate the specific tests to which the gloves were subjected. The CE marking indicates that the gloves in question meet the minimum requirements established for circulation in the European market, while EN 420 defines the general criteria which protective gloves must meet. Another regulation to be kept in mind when selecting gloves is EN 388, which specifies their resistance to mechanical stresses such as abrasion, shearing, tearing or perforation. In any case, it should be remembered that there is no such thing as a "universal glove" appropriate for protecting hands for every task.
