MCR Safety Impact Glove Protection Buying Guide
You use your hands every day at work, which means they are at risk of injury. Let's breakdown the new ANSI / ISEA 138 Impact Standard. Are you ready?

Click "Learn More" to find info on protecting yourself against these hazards and find the right gear for the job.

Crush and Impact

Blunt force impact is an everyday concern for a rigger.  Impact protection is this worker’s best friend.  Are you ready for the new impact standard?

Chemicals and Liquids

Hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in oil and gas.  You will need chemical gloves and face shields when handling chemicals.  By the way, do not forget your goggles when opening pressurized systems. Check out the chemical protection offered.

Drilling Fluids, Water-based Muds and Oils

Exposure to drilling fluids is a definite concern for oil production workers, examples include drilling fluids, water-based mud, hydraulic oil, gear oil, and grease.  You will need safety gear made to last!

Fire and Explosions

Explosions caused by a spark igniting certain vapors or gases is a definite concern.  Flame resistant gear is mandatory across all production platforms, drilling rigs, and construction barges.  Max Comfort gear will keep you safe! 

General Hazards

Dotted cotton gloves are an industry favorite for light general maintenance.

Impaired Vision

There is no shortage of activities on a drilling rig where safety eyewear is required.  Splashing chemicals, flying debris, and sparks are concerns every Oil and Gas worker faces.


Inclement Weather and FR

Working in the rain and around liquids is common, along with staying FR compliant. Big Jake rainwear protects workers from ARC flash hazards!

Oils, Lubricants and Greases

You need excellent gear when gripping in oily surfaces.  Nitrile coatings provide ultimate grip in this environment.

Oily Grip

Nitrile coated products are excellent for gripping around lubricants, muds and oil.  However, our new Max Grid pattern takes first prize though when it comes to gripping in oil!

Repelling Water

Working outside involves facing Mother Nature head on, meaning wet conditions are always a concern.  HPT coated gloves repel liquids, providing a firm wet or dry grip!

Sharp Objects

Oil and Gas workers are always exposed to sharp metal.  Rest assured, we simplify the selection process on our cut protection page.


Hi-Viz garments distinguish Oil and Gas workers, keeping them seen and safe.

Hydro Blasting

Arsenic, hydrogen sulphide and polluted water are real concerns.  Contractors deserve only the best PPE!  Max 6 Goggles, Face Shields and clothing are absolute musts.
