Are your workers really protected?

Workers in the utilities industry face many on-the-job hazards. According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Severity Index from January 2015 through September 2019, within subcategories of other injuries, most injuries in the utilities industry were related to fractures and amputations. Approximately 32% were heat (thermal) burns; 26% were cuts and lacerations; and nearly 5% were chemical burns and corrosions. In total, body and hands represent 71.14% of the body parts that are most often injured.

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.

To help you in the decision-making process, from risk assessment through implementation, we recommend using the 4P methodology.

Multiple workplace hazards in a dynamic work environment

Now more than ever, utility companies across the globe face increased competition, stricter regulations, limited government subsidies and social pressure for more clean energy sources.

To remain competitive, companies are upgrading to more efficient generation, transmission and distribution systems. These upgrades involve an important diversification of energy portfolio with a reduction in the single energy source from fossil fuels to different renewable sources.

As a result, workers in the utilities industry, who are responsible for providing electricity as an essential need for the world, are facing new and multiple workplace hazards in a very dynamic work environment. DuPont offers a broad range of PPE solutions to address these hazards, including:  Nomex® garments for thermal and electric arc flash hazards; gloves made with Kevlar® for mechanical and multi-hazard protection; Tyvek® garments for protection against fine  particle hazards and low level liquid splashes; Tychem®  garments and gloves for protection against a wide range of chemicals; and ProShield® garments for protection against dirt and grime.
