You need to be well prepared to work in some of the toughest environments. How do you choose RPE which measures up to the job at hand?

When your workplace hazards are challenging, it is vital to have a completely reliable RPE solution that won’t let you down. You could be dealing with asbestos or silica fibres, facing dangerous gases such as ammonia or chlorine, worrying about chemical mists produced by spray paints or fumes caused by welding or smelting: if you or your employees are breathing in any of these, you are in danger of serious and possibly life changing damage to your health.
