Innovative PPE Keeps Construction Workers Comfortable, Safe, and Productive During National Construction Appreciation Week and Year-Round
National Construction Appreciation Week occurs annually on the third week of September and celebrates the millions of hardworking men and women in the American construction industry. In celebration of the week, Magid Glove & Safety is recommending innovative PPE for the construction industry that will keep workers safe while improving comfort, productivity, and compliance.
For lighter-duty construction jobs – The Magid® T-REX® Flex Series® Lean TRX449 is the first impact glove on the market that has low-profile impact protection and a crinkle latex palm. The crinkle latex palm delivers comfort and grip for both wet and dry working conditions which makes it a great solution for the industry.
For heavy-duty construction jobs – The Magid® T-REX® Flex Series® TRX441 has dependable 360-cut protection, a lightweight shell, and unmatched dexterity. This glove can even be used with oily applications that are frequently seen in the construction industry.
For applications that require heat – Magid’s T-REX® Inferno Series® TRX848 features the Magid flame resistant M-Force Defense System® which deflects and absorbs impacts while delivering protection from heat and open flame. These features are combined with a soft goatskin leather shell that provides an additional layer of abrasion resistance and dexterity making these gloves a comfortable option for heat-based applications.
Safety Managers should look for lightweight sleeves that will stay put and won’t roll down or irritate workers’ skin. Magid recommends its innovative Magid® M-GARD® AeroDex® Sleeve, made with lightweight material that’s lighter than traditional PPE. And if workers are prone to skin irritation and contact dermatitis, the Magid® M-GARD® DX Technology® Sleeve uses non-irritating strength-enhancing microparticles to achieve higher levels of cut protection without the discomfort that fiberglass or steel can cause. It also features a hook and loop closure and a gusset bicep treatment that will help prevent these sleeves from rolling down throughout the day.
Magid’s Gemstone Zircon Plus Y770HV Safety Glasses offer protection and comfort with a thermoplastic rubber (TPR) inner frame cushion, nose pad, and temple tips. They are also anti-fog, scratch-resistant, impact-resistant, offer 99.9 percent UV protection, and come in a variety of tint options.
Magid recommends its portable Magid Cool® Powered by Mission® combined with other preventative heat safety measures to help combat heat illness in the workplace. Magid Cool Powered by Mission cools to 30 degrees below the average body temperature in under 60 seconds. This gear will stay cool for hours and can be reactivated repeatedly with just water. Magid Cool Powered by Mission is sold as a cooling towel, neck gaiter, bandana, and even as a skull cap.
