Ways to keep you protected in an industrial working environment

(© Ilshat –

You cannot afford to take chances when it comes to your safety. Accidents often occur while at any workplace. However, depending on the equipment and tools you use at work, the accidents may vary in the degree or severity of injuries caused. More often than not, industrial accidents are severe and sometimes fatal as they may involve dangerous chemicals, heavy equipment, and machinery.

Your safety is perhaps one of the essential things you should focus on while at work because let us face it, your industry depends on your services. There are several ways to keep yourself safe while working in any industry. One of them is getting high-quality safety supplies. Thankfully, harmony lab and safety supplies offer a wide range of industry-specific protective safety supplies to keep you safe while doing your work.

Are you looking for industry-specific personal protective supplies? Look no further. Here are some supplies you can expect to find at Harmony Lab & Safety Supplies:

N95 respirator with the cool flow valve

Are the humid and hot conditions hampering your work? Worry not! This respirator with cool flow valves will minimize heat concentration, leaving you feeling cool constantly! The respirator offers protection against non-oily liquid and solid aerosols. You are sure of your safety and easy breathing while working with headband straps, as they are unlikely to break.

You are probably thinking about your fit size. With an aluminum m-shaped nose clip, you are guaranteed a custom fit with reduced pressure points. Another great feature is the soft foam face seal that is easy to contour, providing a face seal for your protection and comfort.

3M CSS protective eyewear with foam gasket

Working in industries such as chipping, construction, and construction demolition can be dusty. Thankfully, these lightweight-framed safety glasses with contoured temples are just what you need! With an easy to dislodge foam gasket, your exposure to dust is significantly limited. The glasses come with an anti-fog coated lens to minimize fogging for those working in humid environments, which can easily impair vision.

Can they fall while at work? The glasses’ temples have an earplug control system(CCS) that is useful in strapping and keeping the glasses in place while you are at work. The wrap-around design offers complete eye protection without obscuring your vision.

3M 6001 organic vapor cartridge

Working in chemical industries such as petrochemicals, chemical manufacturing, and electronics can subject you to harmful chemicals that can cause respiratory problems when inhaled. The cartridge comes as either full piece or half piece. With a full-piece organic vapor cartridge, you are protected from several organic vapor concentrations up to 50 times the permissible exposure limits (PEM). In contrast, a half-piece vapor cartridge protects you up to 10 times the PEM.

P 100 particulate air filter

The lightweight, easy breathing particulate filter is suitable for specific oil, and non-oil particles such as lead, arsenic, and asbestos are recommended for pharmaceuticals, construction, agriculture, general manufacturing, welding, and metal pouring and soldering industries. The filter is resistant to water, abrasion, and flame, thus ensuring its durability and guaranteeing your safety.
