Health and safety first

High-performing personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential for anyone working with glass, and the wide range of PPE from CR Laurence offers that important last level of defence against common occupational hazards, the company has reported.

The range includes everything from gloves to goggles, wrist guards, cutters aprons and safety glasses.

There is also a range of gloves with various levels of cut resistance for those that handle glass regularly, protecting hands from cuts, blisters and abrasions. CRL’s Powerflex Performance Gloves provide excellent cut resistance and grip, as well as conforming to BS EN 388, while the Atlas Fit Glove is perfect for light lifting situations.

CRL’s PPE range includes a choice of cutters aprons, including a 24-inch luxury leather option with handy front pocket for tool storage, and a heavy duty glass handling lap made from soft rubber for extra grip.

Completing the range are safety glasses that offer comfort and protection against flying particles and dust.
