Making a difference in the construction sector

The safety challenges in the Construction industry are diverse and exist in all activity phases from preparatory site work, build to fit-out. To deliver projects on time, to specification and on cost requires flawless synergy between all teams and the same is true for an appropriate and complementary range of personal protective equipment.

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.

Construction hard hats

Working in the construction industry is a high risk activity and accidents can happen. Head injuries can come from falling objects, striking fixed objects (such as unprotected ends of scaffolding poles), or from restricted headroom. Remember, if a risk assessment has identified the possibility of head injury, then hard hats are mandatory, regardless of the nature of the construction work, or the size of the project. It only takes a moment for an accident to happen, with potentially disastrous consequences. Make sure you check your hard hat regularly for signs of damage - learn more about how to clean and store your head protection correctly.

Choice of lens tints

Choice of lens tints

Properly tinted safety eyewear can have a dramatic effect on the wearer’s vision, comfort and energy levels as well as concentration and productivity. Contrast-enhancing tints significantly improve depth perception with full signal colour recognition guaranteed.

Reliable UV protection

Reliable UV protection

Working outside for long hours increases your exposure to damaging ultraviolet rays, even on cloudy days. uvex which stands for UltraViolet EXclusion is unique to the rest of the safety eyewear market in that it offers UV400 as standard across its entire range.

Permanent lens coatings

Permanent lens coatings

uvex is the world leader in lens coating technology, delivering coatings that are permanently bonded to the lens and so do not wash or wear off, even after extended wear or repeated cleaning. With a range of coatings available, uvex is able to offer the right solution for your working environment.

Easy-to-use, effective hearing protection

Protecting your hearing is essential when working in the construction industry, where noise levels can be in the 100 dB range, but clear communication is also vital. uvex hi-com earplugs provide 24 dB protection and allow excellent speech perception so you won't need to remove your hearing protection to communicate with your team. If you don't need to wear hearing protection all the time, corded options allow you to hang the earplugs around your neck until required, and with the uvex xact-fit, shaped stems mean you can insert the plugs quickly, accurately and without removing your gloves. Remember, noise-induced hearing loss is the most common, permanent & irreversible injury in the world, make sure you are properly protected.
