Protective equipment

Protective equipment at the construction site

1.Self protection

Personal protection equipment are divided into classes:

1. pressure suits, impermeable suits
2. respiratory protection: gas masks, respirators;
3. special protective clothes: coats, capes, gowns, suits, jackets, shirts, pants, overalls;
4. legprotection: сапоги, shoes, rubbers, shields, knee pads;
5. handprotection: mittens, gloves, sleeves, knee pads;
6. head protection: protective helmets, helmets, balaclavas;
7. eyes protection: goggles;
8. face protection: Protective face shields;
9. ears protection: anti-noise helmets, earplugs, ear muffs;
10. falling from a height and other safety equipment; safety belts, ropes, hand grips.
11. Full protection equipment

2.Colllective Protection

CollectiveProtectionequipmentaredivided according to collective class:

• tools of normalization of air environment of production facilities and jobs (by high or low barometric pressure and its sudden changes, increased or low humidity, high or low air ionization, high or low concentrations of oxygen in the air increased concentration of harmful aerosols in the air): ventilation and air cleaning, air conditioning, heating;

• normalization tools lighting production facilities and jobs (low brightness, the absence or lack of natural light, reduced visibility, discomfort or blinding glare, excessive pulsation of luminous flux, low color rendering index): dimming devices, optical filters;

• protection from high levels of infrared radiation: fencing, sealing, insulating, remote control, safety signs;

• protection from high or low levels of ultraviolet radiation: fencing, air ventilation, automatic control and alarm, remote control, safety signs;

• protection from high levels of electromagnetic radiation: the protective device, protective coatings, sealing devices, automatic control and alarm devices, remote control devices, safety signs;

• protection from high voltage electric and magnetic fields: the protective device, protective grounding, isolation devices and coatings, safety signs;

• protection against high noise level: fencing, sound insulation, sound-absorbing, silencers, automatic control and alarm, remote control;

• protection from high vibration level (general and local): fencing, anti-vibration, anti-vibration and vibration-absorbing, automatic control and alarm, remote control;

• protection from high-level ultrasound: fencing, sound insulation, sound-absorbing, automatic control and alarm, remote control;

• protection against electric shock: the protective device, automatic control and signaling systems, insulating device and coating device of protective grounding and vanishing, automatic shut-off device, a potential equalization device and undervoltage, remote control devices, safety devices, lightning and surge arresters, safety signs;

• protection from high or low temperature surfaces of equipment, materials, blanks: fencing, automatic control and alarm system, thermal insulation, remote control;

• protection from high or low air temperatures and temperature changes: fencing, automatic control and alarm system, thermal insulation, remote control for radiant heating and cooling;

• protection against mechanical factors (moving machinery, moving parts of production equipment and tools; moving products, preparations, materials, violations of integrity of structures, the breaking of rocks, loose materials falling from a height of objects, sharp edges and roughness workpieces surfaces tools and equipment; sharp corners): fencing, automatic control and signaling, safety, remote control, brake, safety signs;

• protection against falls from a height: fencing, safety nets, safety signs.

3. Fence construction site

Fences Classification:

1. Fence for the functional purpose is divided into:

• protective security – designed to prevent unauthorized access to the territory and areas with hazardous and harmful production factors and to ensure the protection of wealth building;
• security designed to prevent unauthorized access to the territory and areas with hazardous and harmful production factors;
• Signal intended to warn of the boundaries of territories and areas with hazardous and harmful production factors.
