uvex occupational safety equipment for administrative, catering and safety applications

In addition to ensuring that production processes are carried out correctly, your plant must be safe, your employees need to be provided with meals and operations need to be managed effectively. This can mean your employees work in a wide range of areas – and encounter a variety of hazards on a daily basis.

The aim of protective equipment from uvex is to ensure your catering requirements, in terms of slippery floors and eye strain for employees who work with screens for example, are taken into account as well. With this in mind, VDU spectacles are needed in addition to water-repellent safety shoes that prevent slips as well as designs that are suitable for wearing to a business meeting.

A hazardous office?!

Compared to production areas, offices often seem to be risk-free for employees. However, long working hours in front of screens and stressful noise levels in open-plan offices should not be overlooked as sources of strain on your employees’ health. The wide product range from uvex features stylish VDU spectacles that prevent the head from moving into unnatural positions and that can also be equipped with an anti-reflection coating or blue light filters. Otoplastics with a low level of insulation offer comfortable hearing protection, enable focussed work and voice clarity in sometimes hectic everyday office life.

Protection for industrial and catering applications

While protection for employees involved in series production in the automotive industry is in part focussed on falling vehicles and rolling vehicles, employees in large kitchens, which play an essential role in people’s well-being, are exposed to hot liquids and falling pans instead. This is why protection is imperative for these persons; at the same time, the strictest hygiene requirements have to be taken into account. Washable, sporty shoes with easy-to-clean surfaces ensure high wearer comfort and provide optimised slip resistance too.

Stylish protection in the office and production areas

Part of a range of shoes focused on stylish design, a lightweight construction and exceptional protection, the “uvex 1 business” models are a smart combination for any business meeting or inspections of production halls and building sites. Regardless of whether you opt for shoes, desert boots or Chelsea boots, these shoes go perfectly with business attire and enable employees to be flexibly deployed between the meeting room and assembly hall.
