UNDERSTANDING ELECTRICAL SAFETY PPE

Specialized Professional Electrical Safety PPESelecting the proper PPE for the job is an obvious first step to injury reduction but understanding the applications so the right safety products are used is critical when working especially with electricity. 

Workers require flame resistant (FR) clothing to provide protection from the arc and flame hazards while on the job as well as comfort, regardless of body type and fit. Sometimes it’s a matter of personal preference, sometimes it’s a specific combination, and it’s typically determined by a hazard risk analysis done by your company.

SPECIALIZED ELECTRICAL PPE

The dangers of being an electrician can vary with the type of work being performed but they’re on the front line of dangerous jobs.

At risk to occupational hazards such as electrical burns, electrical shock, lacerations, fire and arc-flash, it’s critical that electricians wear specialized protective gear such as sleeve protectors and specialized work gloves when installing, maintaining, and repairing electrical systems to maintain their personal safety.

The selection process can be confusing and to better help you in your selection, below is some information to help guide you along.
