RS Components has released a new Personal Protective Equipment Selection Guide, which brings together technical information from all of its major PPE brands for gloves, hearing protection, respiratory protection and eyewear.

Developed in collaboration with multiple suppliers, including Bolle and 3M, the 50-page Personal Protective Equipment Selection Guide illustrates the depth and breadth of the RS personal protection offering in a way which will allow customers to make a clear choice based on their precise needs and applications.

The selection guide is easy to navigate: each primary product section is colour coded, and introductory pages in each section list important factors to take into consideration when selecting the most appropriate product, including in-depth information on sizing, materials, applications and all applicable risks, standards and legislation.

Users are then presented with clear and unambiguous product tables, which highlight all the primary brands, including the company’s own brand RS Pro, the products they offer and what functional characteristics they exhibit based on the explanations in the introductions. Once a selection has been narrowed down, users are able to choose a specific product size, which then indicates the appropriate RS product-ordering code.

The guide features the full selection of gloves, eyewear, respiratory and hearing protection that RS offers, including recent new introductions such as 3M PELTOR LEP-100 listen only communication ear defenders and PELTOR Protac III speak and listen communication head sets.

Specification of the correct PPE equipment should never be taken lightly. Application of the correct equipment for the job could be the difference between safe operation and life-changing injuries – one of the reasons why RS and its suppliers have invested so much time and effort into creating this useful and informative publication. Indeed, the Personal Protective Equipment Selection Guide is destined to become an essential addition to any safety officer’s reference portfolio.

As well as gloves, hearing protection, respiratory protection and eyewear, the extensive RS PPE offering includes headwear, harnesses, clothing and footwear, among others. Further discussions and articles on PPE equipment are available on the RS DesignSpark website.
