Electrical resistance is an important characteristic of safety shoes. Movement and friction causes a build-up of electrostatic charge in the body. Shoes and clothing that are not conductive enough can increase this charge. At a certain point a discharge will occur. A discharge that is too high or uncontrolled can result in serious consequences such as an explosion due to spark formation or damage to electronic products and components in a working environment.

A bump cap is a type of headgear that is typically used in work environments where there is a risk of head injuries from falling objects or bumping into objects. Bump caps are not designed to protect against impact forces as much as they are designed to protect against abrasions, cuts, and scrapes. They are usually made from soft materials such as foam or fabric, and they often have a visor to protect the face from debris. Bump caps are typically worn in combination with other types of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as hard hats or safety glasses.

EN ISO 10819 is the standard which specifies the requirements for gloves to protect against vibrations. When working with any equipment producing vibration exposure such as jackhammers, chipping & paving breaker tools, electric hammers etc, users will experience vibration transmission from the tool handle to the palms of the hands hence the reason for wearing anti vibration gloves. EN ISO 10819 sets out the requirements used to analyse the ‘vibration transmissibility’ of gloves i.e., the ability of a glove to protect the users’ hands from vibrations within a frequency range of 31.5 Hz to 1250 Hz.
