Types of Safety Equipment Products
Some of the different types of safety equipment products that you can buy in Richmond include:
Safety glasses or goggles are a form of protective eyewear that is designed to surround the eyes to prevent particulates, water, or chemicals from entering the eyes. In most cases, safety glasses are worn when using power tools or in Richmond laboratories.
Work gloves are a type of personal protective equipment that are designed to cover and protect hands from the fingers to the wrist. This type of safety equipment protects hands and fingers from a range of different wounds, such as blisters, splinters, cuts, burns, and skin punctures.
Hand cleaners or hand sanitizers are designed to provide Richmond employees with an easy solution for cleaning their hands when soap and water are not available. This type of safety equipment is often a gel product that contains alcohol for killing bacteria and most viruses.
Richmond employees should be provided with hearing protection if the work environment exceeds 85 decibels, as hearing protection is specifically designed to reduce the level of noise exposure and to help prevent hearing loss.
Designed to help protect the top of the head and, in some cases, the jaw, head protection is a type of personal protective equipment that works to protect the head from impact trauma and burns.
Respiratory protection equipment works to prevent Richmond employees from breathing in air that is contaminated with harmful dust, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, vapours, or sprays in order to prevent occupational illnesses.
Since falls are a common cause of injury and death in Richmond workplaces, employees who are working at a height should have access to proper fall protection equipment. Fall protection safety equipment can help eliminate hazards, while also helping to control the risks associated with working near openings or at heights.
