3M comments on the need for good RPE

29th May 2009

3M has commented on how its range of protective clothing systems can be used to keep laboratory workers safer.

The company stated this week that through its occupational health and environmental services division, it has been able to develop products to help put the concerns of safety professionals at ease.

Jo Partridge, technical services manager for the 3M department, said it was essential laboratories had items such as respiratory protective equipment (RPE) in order for staff to do their job without risk.

"We are constantly looking forward at new technologies and making sure that we really are creating RPE that people want to wear, is comfortable and allows them to stay productive," she explained.

The company drew attention to its range of S-Series headcovers and hoods – which are useful in practices such as pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Earlier this year, the firm commissioned a study which called for more information to be made to construction workers regarding personal protective equipment.
