Let’s go back to the electrician, who complained about his Electrician Gloves. I asked him whether he was fitted for the gloves. I asked him if he was the boss who bought one size and distributed it to all the electricians. Everyone who uses Electrician Gloves must be properly fitted to ensure correct fit and dexterity. To ensure a proper fit, measure the circumference of your dominant hand. Also measure the length of your middle finger and the base of your hands. Your glove size is the largest measurement (Size 7-11). For more information, refer to the photos to your right.
Glove Storage and Use
To ensure safe glove usage, it is important to use gloves properly and store them correctly. These are the best practices to follow:
Glove Storage: Keep debris out of your gloves by putting them cuff-down in their storage bags. You can also separate leather protectors from rubber gloves when you place gloves in storage bags. This will allow you to inspect the gloves before use. To protect rubber, keep the gloves dry and cool.

Leather Protector Gloves
Rubber Electrician Gloves provide protection against shock and electric current. Leather protectors add protection against burns and puncture wounds.
Over their rubber-insulating gloves, electricians often wear leather protector gloves. There are many types of leather protectors, but most often they are made from goatskin, buckskin and synthetic leather.

Although leather protectors and rubber-insulating gloves are essential safety measures, electricians still use traditional work gloves when climbing poles or performing other tasks. Lineman gloves should be durable and dexterous, provide grip and slip resistance, and protect hands while performing routine tasks.
