Respiratory protection equipment
Enhalation protection. Buy in Kiev and Ukraine.
When working in industry, production personnel are often exposed to breathing hazards, but not always these dangers are obvious. For example, the dust that hovers in the air after work is sometimes so microscopic that it is not visible to the eye, but if you inhale it regularly, it will lead to chronic diseases that may appear years later.
Very often workers realize the extent of the need for personal respiratory protection only after they retire, finding their health ruined. After all, the worker himself can not always notice the source of danger, some gases do not smell. Therefore, it is important to follow safety precautions, and if the type of activity involves the mandatory use of protective equipment, do not neglect them. Moreover, modern respiratory protective equipment is quite convenient and does not interfere with the work.
Threats that pose a threat to the health of the respiratory organs, which are faced by workers in the industrial sphere, are quite diverse:
Soot from welding.
Wood dust, concrete dust.
Vapors of mercury, paint, etc.
A special type of protection is created for each type of threat, so it is impossible to choose a universal means for all occasions – you need to buy a respiratory protective device based on the specifics of work.
Types of means for respiratory protection at work
They are divided by their purpose and place of application, by the degree of protection for:
Filtering means of protection. The type of threat – dust, steam, gas. Suitable for use in rooms where the concentration of unsafe substances in the air exceeds 18%, but remains low. They can be gas masks, half-masks or respirators, single-use or reusable, without a valve or with a valve. Contaminated air is purified by passing through special filters. Such protective equipment is not suitable if the concentration of harmful substances is not known, nor can it be used in narrow spaces such as tanks, containers, tunnels, etc.
Isolating personal respiratory protection equipment is designed to work in harsh conditions, with high concentrations of hazardous substances in the air, in narrow uncomfortable spaces, and with low oxygen levels. These are protective masks and gas masks that completely cover the face. They do not allow air to pass through filters, the worker breathes an air mixture coming from a cylinder of liquefied oxygen, from blowers through hoses or from a regeneration cartridge. This means of respiratory protection allows the worker to avoid contact with contaminated air altogether, but it can reduce mobility, limit the angle of vision, and reduce hearing. Special training is required for the use of insulating equipment.
Choice of individual respiratory protective equipment
On the site of the Internet store Yuasafety there is a full description of all available means of protection, but they are so numerous that it is not always easy to understand on your own. This can be done according to the following algorithm:
It is important to determine the type of hazard from which you need protection, as well as the degree of exposure to the hazardous substance.
It is necessary to know the properties of the source that pollutes the air – chemical and physical.
It is important to determine how long the employee will be in the room with polluted air.
The degree of concentration of a hazardous substance is important – one must know both the actual level of contamination and the permissible limit of a particular hazardous substance.
The degree of physical exertion of the worker, who will need personal respiratory protection, the expected speed of the work.
The type of room, how spacious or confined it is, the degree of visibility, possible restraints.
