Touchscreen fingertips, cut resistance and winter wear among new product features
October 2, 2015
Electricians, contractors and other industry professionals now have double the options for 3M brand safety gloves. From cut resistance, to winter wear, to touchscreen finger and thumb tips, three new gloves from 3M help increase versatility, protection and convenience for a host of applications and environments.
The Kimberly-Clark Professional KleenGuard A45 Liquid and Particle Protection Surface Prep and Paint Apparel are ideal for use in surface preparation and paint application areas where isocyanate1 and chromate dust protection is mandated.
You can judge the performance of safety gloves by how well they protect and how good they feel. The Tasset® line of safety gloves manufactured by Worldwide Protective Products outperforms conventional hand protection on both counts.
When your safety and your life depend on it, you need your equipment to fit properly. This is especially true in the workplace. Improper fit may prevent workers from performing their job duties safely and effectively.

Wegmans Food Markets Inc. bills itself as an industry leader and innovator. However, recurring hazards at its 1500 Brooks Ave. bakery in Rochester — and injuries to two workers — suggest a need for the supermarket chain to address workplace safety for its employees.
To minimize the potential for workplace injuries and illnesses, OSHA requires personal protective equipment (PPE) for all employees exposed to hazards. In today’s complex work environments, various types of PPE are needed to satisfy the regulations, which apply to physical, electrical, mechanical, chemical, radiological and other hazards.
