Safety in the Workplace

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is critical to success in many high-risk work environments.

Workers risk their safety and health each day on the job.  Employers are required to uphold safety in the workplace and provide appropriate PPE that meets the latest standards in compliance and comfort.  Below are the industries that we proudly service through our industrial safety solutions:

Electrical Utilities

Electrical hazards faced on the job include being exposed to energized parts, electric arcs or flashes, with as much as 35,000 degrees Fahrenheit of heat exposure, flying projectiles, and pressure waves with as much as 2,000 pounds per square foot resulting from an electrical explosion. The greater the energy, the greater the potential hazard.  Below are industrial safety solutions that Key Safety provides for safety in the workplace in the electrical utility field:
