PPE is the last line of defence to protect the wearer from serious injuries. Especially from heavy burns due to thermal hazards from electric sparks or, in the event of an Arc Flash incident.
PUWER regulation 22 stipulates the requirement to have in place appropriate measures for the protection of any person carrying out maintenance operations which involve a risk to his health or safety. The provision of Arc Flash Face Shields and Arc Flash protective clothing mitigates the risk of serious injury, or even loss of life.
The range of PPE has been created to afford both protection and comfort for the user. It is recommended to store the PPE to protect items against undue wear and tear that not only degrades their life but place them at risk of damage and loss of effectiveness. Storage glove boxes and clothing bags are available for this.
