Safety Equipment

Safety equipment is crucial, especially in the workplace when there can be industrial accidents. The term encompasses not only the equipment that should be used but also the working conditions and the protective clothing which should be worn. The type of safety equipment would depend on the profession. In the construction industry, a system of fall equipment should be available. This includes harnesses, ropes and height guards. Adequate lighting can also prevent serious accidents from occurring. In places where there is a risk of fire, there should be firefighting equipment such as fire blankets or extinguishers. Fixtures like dust extraction systems or systems to monitor noise levels could also be installed. Other control instrumentation can detect the presence of contaminants in the air. Any tools or heavy machinery should be certified safe to use and if necessary have non-slip handles. For personal protection, certain clothing or other forms of protection should be worn such as hard hats, goggles or earplugs. The use of safety equipment should be a priority to prevent accidents and possibly save lives. This especially concerns those who work in construction or factories although even those interested in home improvements should invest in some safety equipment.
