Keeps Us Safe

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of workers. It not only protects workers from immediate dangers but also contributes to long-term health and well-being, regulatory compliance, and overall organizational success.

Hard Hat
Hard hats, also known as safety helmets, are essential personal protective equipment (PPE) designed to protect the head and skull from various workplace hazards. The primary function of a hard hat is to protect the head from falling objects, impacts, and blunt force trauma. This protection is crucial for preventing head injuries, which can be life-threatening or result in long-term disabilities.
Class G Hard Hats (low voltage, impact, and heat protection) are recommended for general industrial purpose
Respiratory Protection
Respiratory protection is designed to shield the respiratory system from a wide range of airborne contaminants, including dust, fumes, chemicals, gasses, biological agents, and particulate matter. Masks provide a barrier to prevent inhalation, reducing the risk of chemical burns, poisoning, or acute health effects.
The usage of respirators/face masks Certified Under 42 CFR 84 OSHA normative like N95 face masks or OV/N95 are recommended
Overalls provide a full-body protective barrier against a wide range of workplace hazards, including chemical splashes, dust, dirt, contaminants, and sharp objects. This protection minimizes the risk of injuries, skin irritations, and exposure to harmful substances. The importance of coveralls with reflective materials is closely related to their ability to mitigate hazards by enhancing visibility in the work area.
Safety Glasses
Safety goggles, also known as safety glasses or protective eyewear. The primary purpose of safety goggles is to protect the eyes from potential hazards. They act as a barrier against flying debris, splashes of chemicals, dust, sparks, and other materials that could cause eye injuries.
OSHA, based on ANSI Z87.1-2015 standard, recommends the usage of glasses that follows the standard (D4 +); this type of glasses will ensure impact and dust protection.
The primary function of gloves is to protect the hands from a wide range of hazards, including physical, chemical, biological, and thermal risks. They act as a barrier between the skin and potential dangers. Gloves help prevent injuries such as cuts, abrasions, punctures, burns, and chemical exposure by providing a protective layer.
The usage of thermal cut resistant gloves that follows ANSI/ISEA 105 standards with cut level protection A3, fleece lined to trap warmth just when the operator manipulates hot surfaces.
Ear protection
The primary function of HPDs is to reduce the intensity of noise reaching the ear, thus preventing or minimizing noise-induced hearing loss. Prolonged exposure to high noise levels over the permissible exposure limit (PEL) can cause permanent hearing damage, which cannot be reversed.
HPDs should be appropriate for the noise levels and individually fitted to each employee.
Steel Toe Boots
Safety shoes, also known as work boots or steel-toed boots. The primary purpose of safety shoes is to protect the feet from various hazards in the workplace. This includes protection from heavy objects that could be dropped or roll over the feet, sharp objects that could puncture the sole, electrical hazards, and more.
Protective shoes must follow the ANSI Z41 standard. ARTi recommends type I 75/ EH work boots.
The use of gloves in industrial work is fundamental to safeguard the health of workers. They provide protection against risks such as chemicals, sharp objects, and extreme temperatures, comply with labor safety regulations, prevent injuries to the hands, maintain hygiene in the workplace, prevent allergies and dermatitis, and contribute to a safe and productive work environment.
