    • Eyewear safety

      3M is creating a new series of Workers’ Choice videos to highlight why comfort and fit is so important when it comes to choosing items of personal protective equipment (PPE).

      The first puts the spotlight on protective eyewear. It takes a humorous approach to appeal to wearers by featuring a worker showing off an item of 3M™ SecureFit Protective Eyewear that combines protection with comfort and style.

      This range is self-adjusting to allow for different face shapes and head sizes, limiting the chance of frames slipping or feeling too tight. The SecureFit Protective Eyewear Series 400 also has soft, adjustable nosepads to allow for even more comfort and comes in a range of lens shades.

      Explained marketing executive for 3M’s Personal Safety Division, Richard Davies: “If eyewear feels uncomfortable, workers may be tempted to take it off completely or try to adjust it during their work activities, ultimately leading to them not being protected against potential hazards.

      “As with the original Workers’ Choice video highlighting how 3M™ PELTOR™ Communication headsets not only protect hearing, but let workers listen to the radio, talk to each other and hear vital instructions, the new series takes a light-hearted approach to explore how 3M puts the emphasis on achieving the right fit so PPE is worn.”

      Subsequent Workers’ Choice videos will feature other popular items of PPE, such as disposable respirators, reusable respirators and hearing protection solutions including ear muffs and earplugs.
