Safety First. Innovation Always.

Last year we focused on management visibility, accountability, engagement, consistency and implementation of  additional resources where required. It’s these practices that led us to end 2013 with an industry-leading safety performance. While our ultimate goal is incident-free performance, the significance of our 2013 safety performance demonstrates our unending efforts to maintain a positive culture throughout our organization.

As we enter into a new  year, we announce our brand revitalization, which signifies our ongoing initiatives to strengthen operational efficiencies and provide increased value to our clients, while keeping our people safe.

PPE: Safety gloves

by CMC

A glove is a personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect all or part of the hand. You can also partially or fully cover the forearm and arm.

In the workplace, the worker’s hands and even your entire body can be at risk due to external actions, lacerations on his hands, and accidents due to bad use or choice of the glove.

Gloves must protect against a particular risk due by themselves  use without creating other hazards.

It must be ensured that there is no hygienic issue for the user due to the characteristics of glove manufacturing materials used or degradation from normal use. For example, the pH level of the material is greater than 3.5 and less than 9.5, correct limitation of chromium, and adequate ergonomics (comfort level in accordance with the standard for protection).

Safety gloves, like other personal protective equipment, fall into three categories depending on the risk:

» Category I From simple design. Protects against minor or moderate risks.

» Category II intermediate design. Protect intermediate risk, ie, which can not cause serious injury or death. They are certified by a notified body or laboratory.

» Category III complex design. Protects against risk of irreversible injury or death. They are certified by a notified body or laboratory, plus a production control by the same organism.


What do you must care? For effective risk protection, gloves should remaina useful, durable and resistant to numerous actions throughout its life.

How do you choose them? Choosing a glove required, in any case, a thorough knowledge of the job and its environment. Therefore the choice should be made by trained personnel, and during the participation and collaboration of workers will be crucial.

PPE is designed to protect the eyes, face, head and extremities of the person, both injuries and illnesses in the workplace from contact with chemical products or radiological, and from physical , electrical, mechanical hazards.

A vital part to protect are our eyes. While it is true that every part of us is important to perform work, the eyes are our guide , those that allow us to understanding the process, learning and making sure that a job is done correctly. In addition, through the view we can realize the dangers and / or future accidents, so safety glasses (part of our Personal Protective Equipment) must carry  and maintaining in good condition.

There are different types of protection for the eyes:

Glasses. They are stronger and more resistant to an impact  plus lenses frames are stronger against heat than ordinary frames. Although the more modern styles of safety glasses are manufactured with a wraparound lens can be attached side shields protection to other styles of safety glasses for protection against flying particles .

Googles. Are similar to the glasses but they fit close to the eyes and may provide additional protection from dangerous situations such as flying particles, liquid splashes, mists, fumes and dust.

Face shields. Are required to protect against flying particles , metal and chemical splashes . The face shields are available to be adapted on a helmet or can be worn directly on the head.
