Protective gear for workplace safety

Portland, Ore.—Do you need noise-blocking earmuffs to mute construction site chaos? How about fully-coated PVC gloves to protect your digits from dangerous chemicals? These products and many more like them can now be ordered online from Graphic Products, manufacturers of the DuraLabel line of industrial labeling systems and supplies. Graphic Products just released its first Facility & Safety Equipment catalog .
 
Responding to earlier customer demand, Graphic Products introduced the Spill Arrest family of application-specific absorption products in the summer of 2010. With the addition of both catalogs, industrial consumers can now purchase everything from safety glasses to HazMat pads, drain covers and leak repair kits—all from Graphic Products.
 
Hazards exist in every workplace in many different forms: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to protect their employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury and the personal protection equipment (PPE) industry introduces new products every year.
 
OSHA 1910.132(a) addresses general requirements for PPE including, “chemical hazards, radiological hazards, or mechanical irritants encountered in a manner capable of causing injury or impairment in the function of any part of the body through absorption, inhalation or physical contact.”
 
This new catalog—accompanied by training in the use and care of PPE, maintaining and replacing worn or damaged PPE, and reviewing the effectiveness of PPE programs—gives both workers and managers all the resources needed for workplace protection.
 
The 20-page catalog includes:
•    Eye, head and face protection
•    Hearing protection
•    Respirators
•    Hand protection
•    Welding and flame-resistant safety products
•    Ergonomic support
•    Fall protection
•    Protective and high-visibility apparel
•    Work zone equipment
•    Confined space equipment
•    Eyewash/shower equipment
•    Hazardous storage
•    Arc flash tool kits, gloves, face shields, outerwear, blankets and aprons
 
Graphic Products manufactures a broad range of industrial labeling systems. With more than 50 types of labeling supplies, Graphic Products, Inc. helps companies solve communication problems in the toughest industrial environments.
 
DuraLabel applications include arc flash, pipe marking, OSHA, safety standards, wayfinding, lockout/tagout, mine safety, wire marking, barcoding and floor marking. Every DuraLabel printer purchase includes a three-year warranty, DuraSuite label creation software and free technical support for life.
