Protection against workplace hazards
SATRA hearing specialist John-Mark Edmundson explains the different standards that apply for each aspect of protection for the eyes, ears and head.
People in the workplace often face multiple hazards at the same time. A tree surgeon using a chainsaw, for example, needs to be protected from impacts to the head from falling debris; the effect of sawdust and small particles flying towards the eye; and from the noise of the chainsaw.
Protection can be provided by multiple components, each satisfying their own standard, or it can be delivered by a single product. There are different European standards that apply for each aspect of protection.
