Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has come a long way since the early years of tough leather fire helmets from centuries ago. Our cutting edge products are in line with the changing demands of the UK market, where the complexities of modern industrialised life have introduced new hazards and materials burn hotter than ever before. We provide above-the-neck PPE products to an ever-expanding range of industries, not just the fire service – basically to any industry where employers need to protect their staff who work in hazardous environment.
There is a greater emphasis on more efficient, economical and effective performance. Dräger developed the first ever breathing appartatus more than 50 years ago and we have since undertaken decades of research and development, together with a stringent evaluation and assessment process, looking closely at the needs of PPE wearers who face life threatening scenarios on a day-to-day basis. It is Dräger’s belief that safety technology for anyone who needs to wear PPE in their equipment should make the job safer and more effective, as well as be lightweight and comfortable enough to allow them to concentrate on the job at hand.
In this climate of tougher safety regulations and economic cut backs, products are increasingly designed to withstand the test of time, keeping people protected year upon year with long service life and variety of applications – meaning that they are ultimately a cost effective solution and result in greater efficiencies at work. I am certain this trend will continue and that PPE will become ever more innovative – protective, safe, but streamlined and with the wearer’s comfort in mind.
