At this time of year, the nights draw in more quickly, with less daylight in the mornings too. The weather is changing, and is more likely to be bleak, cloudy, stormy and wet, also making visibility trickier.
By using the Visiliteâ¢, JSP's unique lighting system for its EVOâ¢ industrial safety helmets, the problem of gloomy and dim light at work can easily be avoided. The revolutionary Visiliteâ¢ is a flexible, durable fibre optic lighting system that increases worker visibility without dazzling colleagues.
The Visilite'sâ¢ tough ABS casings ensure it can withstand knocks and scrapes. Effortless and quick to fit, it simply clips securely onto the sides and rear of any of JSP's EVOâ¢ range of helmets, allowing fibre optic light to shine all around the helmet. The splash-proof Visiliteâ¢ can even be used in wet weather.
Visible up to 50 metres away, the Visiliteâ¢ offers three lighting modes -- static, fast flash, or slow flash -- so it suits the needs of any user. It works by LED lights shining low-level light down the fibre optic, which is refracted by the engraved logos on the optic strip. The unit is USB rechargeable, comes with a micro USB cable, and can even be charged whilst fitted to the helmet.
To ensure workers are visible at all times, whether walking to or from the site or whilst working, the Visiliteâ¢ is a simple, inexpensive, but invaluable asset to keep them safe at work during the darker months.
The result of a 10-year partnership between Heckel and GORE-TEX®, famous for its 100% waterproof, yet breathable, products in the sports, leisure, and safety sectors, the MACSOLE®X MX 300 GT boot boasts a flexible and comfortable PU/rubber sole, giving maximum resistance to oils, hydrocarbons, chemical products and heat up to 300°C. The grooves to the rear of the sole give optimal grip as soon as the heel contacts the ground, ensuring excellent shock absorption.
According to the research, conducted by various international research organisations including the European Occupational Safety & Health agency and presented at the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Singapore on 4th September 2017, occupational exposure to carcinogens kills around 742,000 people globally every year, a sizeable increase from the previous estimate of 666,000 p.a.
One major innovation is the Tychem® 6000 F FaceSeal, a tight coverall that features an integral rubber seal around the hood aperture. Designed to provide a perfect fit and tightness when wearing a full-face mask, this is the garment of choice for applications where liquid leaks may be a particular hazard. As well as providing protection for the wearer, the FaceSeal eliminates the need to use supplementary taping, which saves time when donning and doffing the garment and could therefore improve response times in emergency situations.
