Welcome to the 3M Science of Safety Podcast. Let’s listen in and learn more about protecting workers from head trauma on the worksite. In this episode, co-hosts Mark Reggers and Laurie Wells welcome Don Rust, a Certified Industrial Hygienist and Certified Safety Professional in 3M’s Personal Safety Division, for a discussion on selection of head protection.
Selection of appropriate safety equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), is critical to all rescue workers, law enforcement, and other professionals involved in the aftermath of an earthquake.
With floods come hazards such as mold or airborne dusts containing harmful substances. Consider what personal protective equipment (PPE) you may need to help safely clean-up after the storm.
Read more about what to consider when evaluating head protection for comfort, safety, and compliance.
Review some of the hazards encountered during smelting and casting applications, as well as other activities associated with the primary metal manufacturing industries, and the PPE available.
Learn more about what PPE and other measures that can be taken to protect those who engage in important welding and grinding applications.
This study demonstrated a statistically significant increase in welder productivity (as measured by weld wire applied), as well as positive welder assessments of comfort and improved weld quality, plus an opportunity to reduce the potential for eye injuries when welders used an integrated PPE respiratory PAPR system.
Let’s break down the differences between bump caps, hard hats and climbing style helmets.
