Chemicals and Liquids

Hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in oil and gas.  You will need chemical gloves, face shields, and goggles when handling chemicals and opening pressurized systems. Check out our chemical permeation database.

Crush and Impact

Blunt force impact is an everyday concern for a rigger.  Impact protection is this worker’s best friend.  Are you ready for the new impact impact standard?

Drilling Fluids, Water-Based Muds and Oils

Exposure to fluids is a definite concern for oil production workers.  Examples include drilling fluids, water-based mud, hydraulic oil, gear oil, and grease.  You will need safety gear made to last!


Silica is the basic component of sand and rock, meaning dust exposure is common during hydraulic fracturing operations.  Conveyor sand, operating engines and motors are all concerns for getting dust in your eye.  Lined eyewear will keep it out of your eyes!

Fire and Explosion

Explosions caused by a spark igniting certain vapors or gases is a major concern for workers.  Flame resistant gear is mandatory across all production platforms, drilling rigs, and construction barges.  Max Comfort gear will keep you safe!

Inclement Weather and FR

Working in the rain and around liquids, plus staying FR compliant has always been a challenge.  Not anymore, with Big Jake rainwear protecting workers from ARC flash hazards!

Liquid and Crush

High-risk activities demand high impact gear!  56% of all recordable incidents in 2014 for Oil & Gas were attributed to "struck by" and "caught between” objects.  Back-of-hand protection is a lifesaver, when working with oils, liquids, muds and objects that roll/pinch.  Check out our brand new Ninja Alchemy.

Common Applications:

  • Drilling, Mixing Chemicals, Valve Line Maintenance and Repair, Pipe Handling, Moving and Swinging Pipes. High Pressure lines and hose

Sharp Objects

Upstream workers are always exposed to sharp metal.  Cuts and Lacerations make up 7 percent of all oil and gas injury claims.. Rest assured, we simplify the selection process on our cut protection page.  Grip with confidence next time you are handling heavy iron, jagged material and sharp metal!

Windy Conditions

Goggles are excellent for overhead work where particles might fall.  They also keep the wind from distracting high-risk work!  Impact and chemical protection is a nice feature too.
