Expanded safety range enhances RS Components knowledge hub

January 2017 News

RS Components has updated its Health and Safety Knowledge Hub to include the very latest products and innovations that address safety and personnel wellbeing. In order to address the most recent health and safety legislation and standards, RS regularly updates the personal protection equipment (PPE) section of its website to ensure that its customers can readily access the latest in PPE and site-safety technology.

Of particular interest is an extended range of products from 3M. Following its acquisition of the specialist producer of fall arrest equipment, Capital Safety, 3M now offers an extended range of harnesses, lanyards, self-retracting lifelines and engineered systems. Other 3M products include the 3M ProTac III slim headset units, which offer a slimmer cup for less noisy environments.

More products in the expanded offering include the latest ergonomically designed and water and dust-resistant safety shoes and boots from Honeywell, and Rubbermaid Slim Jim disposal bins, which have been designed to help promote recycling and improve productivity. RS also offers its own range of products under the RS Pro brand. This impressive range of cost-effective, high-quality products includes safety glasses and goggles, bump caps, disposable respirators, spill control and clean-up equipment and a full selection of lockout equipment and kits for site isolation applications.

Effective safety regimens and personnel protection programmes have been proven to have a positive effect on a company’s bottom line. When tied in to a holistic, company-wide safety culture, the benefits escalate and the risks reduce. With new technologies and methods coming on track all the time, it is essential that those with safety management as part of their job function stay informed about the latest technology, and the RS Health and Safety Knowledge Hub is an ideal starting point. With such a broad range of products, advice and support, RS is in an ideal position to help its customers address even the most demanding safety concerns, setting them on the path to optimal operational performance.
