I know you are focussed on protection every day. But awareness days and national days are a fantastic way to shine the spotlight on specific areas of safety. They get everyone talking about a topic, driving innovation, and opening discussions about making things even safer and better.
I’ve picked five big dates for 2023 and explain why Tower are making them a big focus this year…
We’re teaming up with the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) to explain “Listen Today, Hear Tomorrow!”, focussed on hearing protection now being the highest classification level of PPE because of the risks involved.
The right foot protection can limit musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), which account for 24% of lost working days. Tower runs footwear clinics to ensure the right footwear and complementary insole is matched to the wearer’s foot.
We all know that many PPE wearers work outside all day long. But did you know that there is an EN standard for UV protection (EN 13758-2)? Workwear that meets the UPF 40+ rating ensures only 1/40 of UV radiation reaches the skin.
Tower have a range of ladies PPE. Because for PPE to be effective, then it must fit right and not hamper the wearer when going about their job. We will use this day to draw attention to the growing options within female-specific PPE.
I’m specially trained in the fitting of respirators, and Tower support “Clean Air? Take Care!”, a joint BSIF and HSE initiative to reduce occupational respiratory disease. This day will highlight the need to avoid your workforce suffering illness.
7th April - World Healthy Day / 5th May – World Hand Hygiene Day / 15th October - Global Handwashing Day / 14th – 20th November – Road Safety Week.
