Insulating gloves are now mandatory for works on electric vehicles (including hybrid vehicles)
Gloves should be worn “whenever working near high voltage components; High-voltage components include :
– high-voltage battery
– system main relay
– service plug receptacle and fuse
– orange-colored cables
– inverter assembly
– electric drive motors
– DC-DC converter
– electric air conditioning compressor
Class 0 gloves are the gloves to be chosen for insulating protection
A supplementary protection requested by car associations are the mechanical and arc flash protection.
To combine these 3 protections (insulating, mechanical and arc flash protection) composite gloves combine these 3 protection in same gloves.
