Ergodyne has been developing products to make the workplace better since 1983. This week we highlight our growing selection of newer tools and PPE from Ergodyne offered here at GME Supply including tool tethers, safety glasses, gloves, and more.
The ISEA/ANSI 121 Dropped Objects Prevention Standard outlines the safety standards and requirements for testing at-height tool tethering equipment in order to increase safety. While there are not currently any OSHA requirements specific to general or construction industries, many contractors and employers have begun implementing mandates within their companies or job sites for required 100% tie-off for all drop hazards.
Tool tethers have been around for quite a few years. However, traditionally they were referred to as tool lanyards. The industry has adopted the name tool tethers to prevent confusion between tool drop prevention equipment and shock-absorbing lanyards. Tool tethers, like most equipment in the at-height industry, come in a range of shapes and sizes.
When it comes to compliance, Ergodyne goes above and beyond with their Skullerz® Safety Glasses. That way, every time you wear Skullerz® Safety Glasses you can be sure of some important aspects:
First, Skullerz® Safety Glasses are third-party tested for ANSI Z87.1+ High Velocity Impact protection and optical performance and also third-party tested for MIL-PRF-32432 Ballistic Impact Fragmentation - Class 1. Other safety glasses aren't tested for compliance at those levels and often don’t hold up under the same scrutiny.
Every pair of Skullerz® Safety Glasses also feature anti-scratch lenses with 99.9% UVA, UVB, and UVC protection. You get a number of frame patterns to suit your style and
Ergodyne stands out in quality, design, and style with everything they manufacture and their gloves are no exception. And, as the temperature starts to drop this season, Ergodyne’s thermal hand protection can keep your hands safe from work hazards and the frigid weather.
It’s important to choose a glove that can provide wind and water-resistance alongside your typical search for performance measures like impact, puncture, and tear resistance. We have quite a few different styles of thermal gloves from Ergodyne that will meet your comfort performance needs and make working in the cold more bearable.
