Poorly fitting earplugs is a major cause of inadequate hearing protection for workers. Honeywell’s new FIX-A-FIT guide for iPad® is a quick, easy and interactive way for safety managers to select, size, and fit earplugs to protect workers from noise-induced hearing loss.
Radians, Inc., a leading manufacturer of quality personal protective equipment, announced that they will break ground this spring on an 80,000 square foot expansion of their existing Memphis operations where they recently installed state-of-the-art warehouse automation equipment allowing for high volume order processing.
Radians is now manufacturing their Made in the USA foam earplug series at their corporate headquarters in Memphis, TN. The new 5200 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is under the leadership of Dennis Pellerin, an industry expert in foam plug hearing protection for over 24 years.
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced new MAX® Small Pink earplugs — a bright pink version of its popular orange MAX Small single-use earplug for people with smaller ear canals. MAX Small earplugs were introduced in 2011 in response to reports from people with smaller ear canals about having trouble obtaining a good fit — and adequate protection — from other high-attenuating roll-down foam earplugs.
Industrial Safety & Hygiene News has awarded the AirWave Disposable Respirator and Glide Twist-In Earplugs both the 2013 ISHN Reader's Choice Award AND the 2013 ASSE Attendee's Choice Award in each of their respective categories.
