uvex occupational safety equipment for roadside assistance and rescue operations involving electric vehicles
Roadside assistance and rescue operations are entrusted to select employees only; however, these workers often do not know what situation and danger they will encounter when they get to the respective location. If accidents occur in these fields due to insufficient protective equipment, the health of those concerned is very often at extreme risk. This is due to traffic, changing weather conditions and not knowing the condition of the vehicle in question.
uvex therefore offers products that ensure visibility and a high degree of protection against short circuit electric arcs, heat and hazardous substances. During vehicle recovery operations, ensuring the safety of the emergency forces requires protective equipment to meet the highest demands.
For people affected by changing weather conditions and safety hazards that are difficult to see, a special type of protection is required. The mere brightness and reflective quality of high-visibility clothing that meets the requirements of EN ISO 20471 are often not enough to make a rescue team or breakdown mechanic visible in good time. “uvex protection active flash” additionally equips certified high-visibility clothing with high-quality light guides to make sure that vulnerable workers on roads can be clearly and easily seen beyond the reach of the reflective element of their clothing.
In the field of electromobility, the use of high-performance batteries and ambiguous rescue situations really heighten risk due to voltage. In the event of an arc flash occurring, the focus is on protecting the hands, head and body. As a system provider of PPE, uvex truly understands that different elements of protective equipment must be designed to be compatible with one another and minimise risk. Clothing that meets the requirements of various standards, visors for short circuit electric arcs and gloves for high-voltage applications are everyday essentials in these fields.
When it comes to producing ergonomic PPE, uvex takes a consistent approach to take into account body shapes and movement. This is evident in virtually every material group, be it protective clothing, gloves or head protection. Take the “faceguard” visors with short circuit electric arc protection for example; these allow the visor element to be pushed back into a resting position so that it sits centrally over the middle of the head to balance the weight load for the wearer’s neck and thereby prevent fatigue and poor posture.
UV400 vs. UV380
The WHO recommends UV protection up to 400 nm. For uvex, this has always been a given.

Prescription safety spectacles and VDU spectacles for roadside assistance and rescue operations involving electric vehicles
- Organic material with high tensile strength
- Lightweight, also suitable for high prescriptions
- Very good optical image reproduction properties even on high prescriptions
- Very high resistance to cleaning solutions, oils, cosmetics
- Good scratch resistance
- Best all-round lens material
- Mechanical strength, class “F” (45 m/sec)
Anti-reflective coating is applied to the inside and outside of lenses using vapour deposition. It significantly reduces reflections on the surfaces. It offers a cosmetic advantage and increases light transmission.
Three types of coating are available:
- Normal anti-reflective coating
- Multi anti-reflective coating
- Super anti-reflective coating
A special absorber has been added to the lens material that completely filters out UV rays and reduces the blue light content.
- The lenses absorb UV radiation up to 400 nm at 100%, filter short-wave blue light until 410 nm almost completely and reduce the range from 410 nm to 420 nm around 86%.
- uvex UV blue protect lenses enhance contrast and effectively prevent signs of fatigue and age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
- UV blue protect is optionally available for polycarbonate (PC) lenses and HI 1.67
- the mechanical strength of the lenses is guaranteed — clear lenses with UV blue protect are marked 2C-1.2 according to EN 170
