Their lives are filled with adventure, DIY, crafts and building, but also saving the day. They rise to the challenge and are always totally committed. Aside from the inherent risks they face professionally, these everyday heroes open themselves up to other dangers away from their jobs, which should not be underestimated. That they remain relaxed and focused as they achieve excellent results is down to their exceptional equipment. They place their trust in uvex safety products.
Our real life stories allow others to share personal experiences with their favourite uvex products.

Christian G. from Forchheim is a project manager in the machine construction industry by profession, but in his spare time, he loves to potter away in his craft room in the cellar. In the interview below he tells us how he protects himself from danger in his hobby:

uvex: Could you please briefly describe the hobby in which you use uvex personal protective equipment?

CG: I predominantly use uvex products for DIY tasks at home.  Whenever I am drilling, turning, working with a chainsaw, milling or grinding, I wear uvex safety spectacles.

uvex: Which dangers and challenges do you encounter?

CG: The main issue is chips and shavings that fly around following any such rotary activity, which can be dangerous if they go in my eyes.

uvex: How are you protected when engaging in your hobby?

CG: My protection comprises suitable clothing, safety gloves, hearing protection, dust mask and safety spectacles.

uvex: Mit welchen uvex-Produkten schützen Sie sich dabei?

CG: Produkte von uvex finden sich beim Gehör- bzw beim Augenschutz.

uvex: Which uvex products do you wear for protection?

CG: I use uvex hearing protection as well as the safety eyewear.

uvex: Has using uvex products changed the way you practice your hobby?

CG: By using these products, I feel safer when I carrying out such activities and am therefore able to better concentrate on the task in hand.

Christian G. clearly explains that the right level of protection is not just important at work, but also for hobbies and DIY at home. As a rule, it is important to always be suitably protected when working with machines, even at home, and not to treat personal safety lightly.
Thank you for talking to us, Christian G. We wish him all the best and continued pleasure as he safely continues as a hobby craftsman.


uvex is delighted that its industrial health and safety products are used in the private domain as well as professional working life. However, we are of course not able to ensure that the right products are used privately for the respective activity. uvex therefore does not accept any liability for the correct and appropriate application of products and their condition, nor can it be held liable for non-uvex products.
