Safety Products and Equipment
MSA’s new V-Gard caps and hats include a polyethylene shell and offer a choice of suspension system and size. The company says they meet or exceed all ANSI Z89.1-2003 and CSA Z94.1-2005 applicable requirements for a Type I helmet. An array of accessories is available to meet individual protection needs.
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. says its new Digital Elite Series auto-darkening welding helmets with X-Mode technology automatically differentiate between sunlight and the welding arc in outdoor applications. Digital controls allow users to switch between four programmable modes – welding, cutting, grinding, and X-Mode. The helmets are lightweight and come with five outside and two inside replacement cover lenses, a fatigue-reducing comfort cushion, and helmet bag.
Red Wing Shoes
Comfortable toe protection
Red Wing Shoes says its boot style #2235 features a King Toe toe box with 44 percent more room than standard work boots for more comfort. The non-metallic toe doesn’t conduct cold or electricity like steel and won’t set off metal detectors. Uppers are full grain leather; sole is oil/slip resistant.
Also available is boot style #6674 (pictured) with hiker styling for today’s young worker and an aluminum toe cap 31 percent lighter than steel. The company guarantees the boot to be waterproof, even in the wettest conditions.
Vehicle warning flags
Flagstaff Warning Whips from Checkers Industrial Safety Products attach to any on- or off-road vehicle to warn others of a vehicle’s presence. Each warning whip includes a flexible whip with an orange flag and mounting base for vehicle attachment. Standard whip lengths range from 3 to 12 feet; extensions are available for some models.
Osborne Coinage says its custom coins help raise safety awareness at industrial facilities. The coins can be used as a recognition device and can be coupled with other rewards. According to Osborne, companies that have used the coins had fewer lost-time accidents, fewer workers comp claims, and fewer motor vehicle accidents, which resulted in lower insurance premiums.
