Arm Injuries

Arm injuries can occur during various applications found in metal fabrication processes. These can include cuts, scrapes, burns and abrasions.  Choose the proper PPE to protect your arms.

Chemicals and Liquids

Cleaning and degreasing machines directly exposes workers to harsh chemicals.  You will need quality gloves and goggles when dealing with splashing chemicals.

Heat, Burns and Hot Objects

Exposure to heat is all to common for metal fabricators.  Hot tools, hot machine parts and hot metal are always a concern.

Impaired Vision

Metal workers are exposed to flying fragments, particles and projectiles.  When metal chipping, you will need goggles and face shields with 6X greater fog resistance.

Indoor Outdoor Transition

Going inside and outside is a nightmare for those needing clear vision inside, then dealing with outdoor glare when retrieving materials.  Max 36 Indoor/Outdoor glasses are here!

Material Handling

Metal material can cause a lot of scraped hands, abrasions and cuts.  You're going to need some gloves when unloading and transporting metal! 

Pinch Points

Working on gears, chains and pulleys puts your hands in immediate harms ways.  Check out our high dexterity, high cut resistance and back-of-hand protection.

Puncture

Metal splinters, small metal chips and burrs are found all over metal.  Might be smart to wear some high rated ANSI puncture gloves. 

Sharp Objects

Metal workers are in constant contact with some of the world’s sharpest materials.  Your hands can get quickly get injured from sharp metal edges and jagged surfaces.
