PPE solutions for working in the UK power sector

Natural gas, hydro, wind, solar, and coal plants convert resources into the energy and power that we depend on every day. It is easy to take this for granted and forget that this conversion does not occur naturally. The workers who help produce, install, and maintain the equipment needed to process these resources are working tirelessly and often in the face of unique work hazards. Workforces need to be safeguarded from a diverse range of on-site safety hazards, some of which could pose a risk of serious injury. You can trust uvex to recommend the most appropriate PPE to protect your workforce against such hazards, as well as being the most cost-efficient solution for you.

By doing so, our products not only keep workplace hazards to a minimum, we can help prevent long-term health risks, enhance employee wellbeing which in turn has a positive effect on performance and productivity.

Head protection for working at height and mechanical impacts

For those working in the Energy sector, hard hats may need to be worn for long periods of time, and in challenging environments, so it's vital that as well as providing safety, hard hats are comfortable to wear. Industrial safety helmets from uvex comply with standard DIN EN 397, which states that they must be designed to protect the wearer from falling objects. Protection against mechanical impacts to the head safeguards the user against possible consequences such as brain injuries or skull fractures. The standard also includes protection against lateral deformation of the helmet, as well as protecting the wearer from dangerous head injuries.
