Our protective workwear additionally protects people against chemicals, harmful factors, as well as those dangerous to human life and health. Protective workwear aims to reduce the risk of injury or reduce this risk and dangerous factors to almost zero. Thanks to the use of new technologies together with materials in protective and workwear, this goal can be achieved. In addition, this type of technical clothing is both more comfortable and safer than ordinary protective clothing using traditional materials to protect various parts of the body. Therefore, it is extremely important that workwear and protective clothing should be used for a specific purpose for specific substances and according to the recommendations of the manufacturer of protective clothing OHS.
Application of Protective Clothing
Health and safety clothing has a wide range of applications, due to the place of use, as well as to the specific type of threat. For example, hot oil, corrosive substances, flammable substances and even poisonous fumes and gases. Protective clothing - including non-flammable working clothing - is used in laboratories, oil platforms, petrochemical, gas, offshore, wind farms, construction, water transport, inland waterway, rail transport, industry, army, police, firefighting, emergency services, laboratories, agriculture. Non-flammable workwear is also used in other areas to eliminate or eliminate the hazard at work against harmful or dangerous factors and protecting against possible bodily injuries.
Division of protective clothing by properties
Protective clothing has, among others, properties such as: waterproofness, antistatic, heat resistance, frost resistance, acid resistance, oleophobicity (oil resistance). Protective clothing is also characterized by other protective properties against harmful factors. A very important part of our offer of protective clothing is protective clothing for employees of offshore drilling towers, wind farms. We also offer special antistatic workwear for explosion hazard zones in accordance with the Atex directive. Arc Flash Protective Garment
Items of protective clothing
Elements of protective clothing include overalls, coats, aprons, hoods, footwear, gloves, helmets, masks, as well as goggles and goggles, which are also elements of protective clothing.
Difference between regular work clothing and protective clothing
It's easy to confuse the different terms you might meet as an OSH manager. Let's start with a simple definition definition. Protective clothing refers to clothing that meets certain safety standards and corresponds to the risks to which workers are exposed in their unique working environment. For example, when workers may be exposed to an electric arc, their protective clothing must comply with IEC 61482-2. When workers perform welding work, their clothing must comply with ISO 11611, the standard for welding and related activities.
Regular workwear refers to clothing worn in a work environment – such as overalls – that does not have to comply with protective clothing standards.
In general, protective clothing and non-flammable clothing are more expensive than regular workwear, because the materials used to achieve an adequate level of protection are simply more expensive than the most commonly used basic polyester and cotton mixtures for general OSH workwear. These materials can have inherent properties, as we see in modacrylics and aramids, or they can undergo a chemical treatment that gives them their protective properties. In other words, a higher level of protection requires more sophisticated solutions that logically come at a higher cost.
Why companies should be interested in protective clothing
Safety regulations in the industrial sector have become stricter over the years. Nevertheless, there are still many companies that are not aware of the level of protection their employees need. They have chosen to provide their employees with ordinary work clothes, and these clothes do not cover the risks they face on a daily basis. This not only endangers the lives of their employees, but can also result in fines.
The best way to find out what level of protection your employees need is to conduct a risk assessment. This assessment will let you know if your employees need high-visibility clothing, antistatic work clothing or flame-retardant clothing that protects against hazards such as flames and heat, arcs or chemical splashes.
Protective clothing is like insurance
Flame retardant clothing, for example, is like insurance: you hope you don't need it, but if something happens, you'll be grateful to have it, especially when it comes to safety in the work environment! Fortunately, at Amber Marine, our priority is solutions in the field of protective clothing and ensuring full protection of employees in the workplace.
Are your employees adequately protected?
Does their current workwear protect them from threats? If you are hesitant about this, I strongly recommend that you conduct a risk assessment for your organization. For guidance on how to carry out a proper risk assessment, please refer to Directive 89/391/EEC provided by the European Commission. In case of doubt, we will be happy to help you choose the right protective clothing, just contact us by phone or e-mail.
