When people think of PPE today, facemasks will most probably come to mind first. However Personal Protective Equipment comes in many shapes and sizes, from helmets to safety boots. What can often be overlooked are the smaller details that are just as important as the big pieces of equipment.
For example, knee pads play a vital role in PPE for those who need to get down on the ground. Repetitive and unprotected knee impacts can cause serious long-term problems meaning finding a sturdy and comfortable set of knee pads is well worth the time. We recommend Tactical Threads TRP400 knee pads for those looking for an ergonomic design providing advanced comfort and fit. They are compatible with both Tactical Threads and Regatta workwear trousers.
For those of us who are required to wear goggles at work, we know that having a clear and wide field of view helps with our jobs. This means that safety goggles with an anti-fog lens is a must, so vision can be ensured at all times. If you are in the market for safety glasses instead, then this set of PPE glasses offers anti-scratch lenses, again to ensure you have a clear view whatever you are doing. If you are looking for PPE that you can wear outside of work, then consider this pair of DeltaPlus polycarbonate glasses. These stylish single lens glasses meet EN166 personal eye-protection standards and have UV400 protection so can filter out up to 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Not only will they protect your eyes at work, they will look good on you wherever you are.
Some workwear accessories offer PPE protection that help you do your job in a safe manner. Take these Delta Plus Apollon gloves for example. They are hi-viz gloves and offer exceptional dexterity - perfect for those needing to be precise in their finger positions like packing and handling. They meet EN388:2003 and EN420:2003 standards, and their breathable coating really makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
However if you are looking for a pair of gloves that you can use then throw away, then these disposable powder free black nitrile gloves will do just the trick.
