In certain industries, face protection is a must and it is not uncommon to see all sorts of particles that could cause serious facial injury flying around the working environment.
Under the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations, employers are responsible for ensuring their staff are adequately protected in situations where their wellbeing is potentially at risk. If they fail to comply with this, the penalties can be severe, while there's no telling what dangers their personnel are being exposed to.
At Hivis.net we want to ensure the required standards of safety in the workplace are always met, which is why we only offer face shields and visors that conform with what the law deems to be sufficient protection.
We also recognise just how important it is that you feel reassured you are buying quality - especially when your purchase is essential to the health of your staff. Because of this, all of our facial personal protective equipment (PPE) is manufactured by well-known brands, which you can rely on and trust to deliver exactly what you expect.
How can I make sure my face shield is effective?
Of course, in order to prove just how effective this PPE is, the products are extensively tested before hitting the shelves.
Face shields that are used to protect against impacts are tested against projectiles travelling up to 270 mph, demonstrating exactly what they can withstand against.
However, there are other elements to bear in mind. For a start, you need to consider whether or not the face shield you are looking at purchasing is suitable for the job you have in mind. If, for example, you also require ear defenders, this can make certain shields awkward to wear - potentially compromising the effectiveness of both forms of PPE.
You also need to ensure your face shield fits properly, as it will not be able to do its job effectively otherwise. Fortunately, our products all come with adjustable fittings, so all shapes and sizes are generally accommodated for.
You can also rest safe in the knowledge our welding masks are up to standard, conforming to EN 166, EN 169 and EN 175. They are also compatible with JSP welding lenses, meaning sourcing replacements is no hassle at all.
