Attendees at last week’s AIHce 2011 had an opportunity to get a hands-on demonstration of DuPont Protection Technologies’ (DPT) recently launched SafeSPEC™ 2.0, a comprehensive, interactive online tool that helps safety professionals make informed decisions about selecting chemical protective apparel.

SafeSPEC™ 2.0 offers new customizable product selection and search features for the full portfolio of chemical protection clothing from DuPont, including DuPont™ Tyvek® and Tychem® protective apparel.

Since SafeSPEC™ 2.0 is downloadable to desktops for easier access, safety professionals who didn’t make it to the Portland, Oregon event can check out the selection tool in their workplaces. SafeSPEC™ 2.0 gives users the ability to:
  • Search up to 5 hazards at one time
  • Search new hazards, such as particle and biological hazards
  • Search by Industry and Task
  • Get results for all products including: Tychem®, Tyvek®, ProShield® and ProShield® NexGen®
  • Refine selections with easy-to-use filters in the new Product Comparison Tool
  • See products in a new way with 360-degree images that enable views from all angles
SafeSPEC™ 2.0 includes more than 550 new product images. The updated product selector tool allows users to input specific hazard scenarios, yielding results that best match the environment in which the products will be used. To ensure better accuracy and enhance the search experience, safety professionals may now search up to five chemicals at once to demonstrate which garments offer resistance to multiple threats. The tool also features a check system that validates garment selections based on user input for specific hazard scenarios.

“Our goal is to provide a tool that makes the experience as user-friendly and informative for customers as possible,” said Dave Kee, North America garments marketing manager – DPT. “The launch of SafeSPEC™ 2.0 reinforces our commitment to providing industry solutions that facilitate comprehensive product selection so our customers have the information needed to make informed purchase decisions.”
