SAFEGUARDING WWTP WORKERS
Wastewater treatment plant employees face multiple hazards in their work environment, including exposure to hazardous chemicals, pathogens, and parasites such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa, which can cause serious health problems.
The use of sharp tools and machinery in these facilities also poses a risk of lacerations and puncture wounds. It's crucial for workers to follow safety protocols and wear appropriate personal protective equipment to minimize these risks.
DuPont offers a range of protective solutions to suit various wastewater applications.
Tyvek® 400 provides breathable barrier protection against dry particles, aerosols, and non-hazardous light liquid splash with added durability, while Tyvek® 800 combines resistance to low-concentration, water-based, inorganic chemicals (even under pressure) with the strength and durability of Tyvek® fabric, thanks to an innovative fabric technology and enhanced, taped-seam design.
The ProShield® 70 Boot & Shoe Covers are fluid impermeable and meet ASTM F1670 & ASTM F1671 standards.
Stay protected on the job with Mechanix Wear's range of heavy-duty gloves, including the SpeedKnit™ M-Pact® S5EP02 Chemical gloves that are fully coated in nitrile to prevent contamination from chemicals, oils, solvents, acids, and caustics.
The 6 mil Heavy Duty Nitrile Gloves are powder-free with a full textured grip for traction while working with tools, while the Durahide™ Hi-Viz Needlestick Protection glove is designed for those handling sharp objects.
