PPE Solutions for the Oil & Gas Industry


Because everyone has someone depending on them to get home safely.

Are your workers, processes and environments really protected?

Workers in the oil & gas industry face many on-the-job hazards, including flash fire; slick, oily surfaces; sharp edges; punctures; heat; uncontrolled pressure release; and exposure to hazardous chemicals, dust and solvents—to name just a few.

Providing workers with the protection they need for the hazards they face is a major responsibility. DuPont Personal Protection has the in-depth knowledge, unparalleled expertise and broad portfolio of PPE solutions to help keep your workers safe.

Drilling, producing and refining oil & gas involves high-risk tasks in  extreme conditions

To remain competitive, oil & gas companies are embracing new technology and focusing on improving productivity and efficiency from oil rigs to petrochemical refineries.

Workers in the oil & gas industry perform many high-risk tasks that involve potential flash fires, mechanical hazards and exposure to a wide range of hazardous chemicals. In some cases, these high-risk tasks are performed under extreme weather conditions and in remote locations.

As a result, workers in the oil & gas industry face multiple workplace hazards in a very dynamic work environment and health, safety and environment (HSE) managers have many tasks to balance. 

DuPont offers a broad range of PPE solutions to address these hazards, including: Nomex® garments for flash fire hazards; Tyvek® garments for protection against fine particle hazards and low level liquid splashes; Tychem® garments and gloves made with Kevlar® for cut and multi-hazard protection. DuPont experts are also available to work side by side with the HSE manager to help simplify the process of properly matching PPE to the hazards your workers face.
