Looking Forward: What's New in PPE
With a difficult year behind us, we look forward to meeting with clients and old friends in person again. But even during lock-down, people have continued working in the hope of making each workplace safer. This holds true, as well, for electrical safety in the workplace.
With this spirit of optimism, we would like to share new products that PPE manufacturers have developed. We will showcase one product every few weeks on this blog. We provide some details here. Be sure to link to the manufacturers’ websites to find out more.
In this first of the series, we focus on an FR Lightweight Carhartt shirt for men and women.
e-Hazard does not endorse any PPE manufacturer or product. We share information with all our clients so that potential buyers can make more informed decisions.
