How can DuPont™ help?

If you are the Safety Manager or lead a team of workers that might face electric arc hazard, you are ultimately responsible for specifying the correct protective garment. This is a challenging task, but we are here to support you in the process. We can help with preparing the specifications for protective clothing by assessing the hazards your workers face, and with selecting the right fabric and garment to address them.

If you are involved in working with electrical installations, your safety is non-negotiable. However, even with rigorous training and the strict application of proven procedures, it is impossible to completely eliminate all risks associated with electricity. Electric shock and electrocution are obvious hazards, but electric arcs also represent a significant danger, with serious potential health consequences.
