Key Factors for Optimal PPE

Which personal protective equipment is best? The one being used!

As a manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), we at Ejendals know that our products meet the protection requirements in the best possible way.

But we also know that it is important for the safety shoes and gloves to be used with correct compliance, meaning that they are not only used but also used correctly.

In addition to designing safety gloves and shoes that provide the appropriate level of protection, we also design them with user-friendliness in mind, ensuring that they are comfortable, convenient, and easy to use throughout the workday.

Removing your goggles and placing them on your head or taking off your safety gloves to answer the phone can have catastrophic consequences. Safety products that are compliant and user-friendly form the foundation for preventing accidents that may occur due to incorrect usage of personal protective equipment.

Ensuring that the products are comfortable is crucial, but as a company, there are other measures that can be taken to improve compliance and ensure that PPE products are correctly used throughout the working hours.

The fit is extremely important

We asked Per Andersson, Work Environment & Safety Coordinator at Fagersta Stainless, a well-known steel industry in Sweden.

The fit is extremely important on all PPE; it must be comfortable for the user. But no PPE is made to be used for more than 8 hours straight, says Per Andersson.

He emphasizes the importance of also having a well-thought-out strategy for PPE products at the company.
When you work with people's lives and health, you must have a method, says Per. The safety coordinator must be the engine of that approach and the link between the company management and the employees on the floor.
At Fagersta Stainless, they have a process where what they believe becomes knowledge and where they think outside the box.
Per Andersson concludes that encouraging workers to wear protective equipment is not only about saving money or complying with rules but also about saving lives, preventing injuries, and mitigating risks of life-long health issues such as cancer, circulatory problems, and allergies for the employees.

To maintain high compliance, it is important to follow these steps:

  1. Choose products that the users find nice, comfortable, and do not hinder their work.
  2. Ensure that there is always information available on how and when to use the protective equipment, such as providing guidance during the distribution of protective clothing.
  3. Provide adequate training, especially to the safety personnel, to ensure proper use and maintenance of the protective equipment.

Imagine the combination 

The new line of cut protection gloves from TEGERA combines effective protection with exceptional user comfort. Thanks to the innovative TEGERA ® CRF Omni Technology , these gloves offer maximum cut protection despite being extremely thin and flexible, allowing users to maintain excellent dexterity and control. As a result, workers are more likely to keep their gloves on and use them consistently, ensuring good compliance with safety regulations and minimizing the risk of accidents and injuries.
