Raising safety awareness about silica dust at A+A 2017

Designer and manufacturer of innovative respiratory and respiratory protective equipment (RPE), Scott Safety, returns to the A+A trade event in Dusseldorf (17th to 20th October 2017, Dusseldorf, Germany) to showcase their solutions in the areas of construction, silica dust, confined spaces, industrial firefighting and gas detection. (Hall 06, stand G27). A+A is the largest international trade forum for safety, security and health at work.

Throughout the event Scott Safety experts will be showcasing technologies and systems that support eye, hearing, head and respiratory protection. Scott will also be presenting a sensory experience, giving visitors the opportunity to try on products in a simulated environment, whilst learning more about them.

At this year’s show, Scott Safety aims to improve education about worker well-being and work-related illness. Scott Safety is committed to raising awareness about silica dust, where it can be found, how it is created, and how those at risk can protect themselves against its health hazards. John Clement, Marketing Manager, EMEA, at Scott Safety commented: “One of the big issues we’re focusing on at the moment is exposure to silica dust, a major occupational safety hazard.

“We are trying to raise awareness about silica dust in its entirety; where you can find it, how it is created, employer responsibility, and how to protect against it, not only with PPE but practical measures that can help to mitigate its effects. In addition at this year’s show we will showcase our wide range of products that cater to workers who may find themselves exposed to silica dust.”

Additional keys areas of focus this year include gas detection; portable and fixed, working in confined spaces and industrial firefighting. Key products exhibiting on the Scott Safety stand also include:

  • The new durable, affordable Duraflow PAPR
  • The lightweight AVIVA half-mask
  • The new Protégé Plus and Protégé SG portable gas detection range
  • Phantom Vision power assisted respirator with improved user experience
  • Scott’s market leading hard hat and bumpcap ranges
