Safety equipment

Life safety equipment’s are as per their name suggests, i.e., those equipment’s that are very helpful in saving one's life. These may include equipment’s in firefighting like a blanket or a fire proof jacket. There can also be real time alarm systems that when used can be really helpful in saving people in emergency situations

It is widely recognized that the risk of exposure should be addressed through administrative and engineering controls, work practices and training. It is equally recognized that these controls may not prove to be adequate in situations where the risk could not be completely minimized, or in the event of an unplanned exposure. Thus the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) becomes last line of defence against exposure.

The benefits gained by wearing PPE are:

  • Possible prevention of exposure,
  • Potentially minimizing the risk should an exposure occur, and
  • Compliments existing controls to enhance personal protection.

When considering the appropriate type of PPE, it is important to identify and assess all the types of risk one will be exposed to, what risks can be mitigated through other control mechanism, and any detrimental impact associated with the selection of the PPE.

Usually Equipment’s are

  • Gloves
  • Fire Blankets
  • Lab Coats / Gowns
  • Eye Protection
  • Respirators
