High performance hand protection on Globus stand at ADIPEC 2014, Abu Dhabi
Globus, a world leader in protecting hands, is exhibiting its portfolio of innovative protective gloves for the oil, gas and petroleum industry on stand 8225D in Hall 8 at ADIPEC 2014 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
ADIPEC, the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference is amongst the top oil and gas events in the world attracting 54,000 visitors in 2013 over four days. All oil and gas professionals from around the world are invited to attend the 30th event. Delegates can listen to technical presentations, or attend plenary and panel sessions. An exhibition of over 1600 companies displaying products and services for the oil, gas and petroleum industry will be available to peruse.
The hands are an essential tool and the contact point for every worker in the oil and gas industry making gloves an essential piece of work wear. Gloves which are specified to match both the hazards as well as worker requirements are invaluable for the ‘task in hand’ and can positively impact hand accident rates and save costs at the same time.
Globus has developed effective hand protection solutions to perform in extreme climates and to protect from impact, chemicals, cuts, abrasion, water and punctures. As well as reducing the risk of hand accidents, the specialist gloves can also provide powerful grip in wet and oily handling conditions. They should also be comfortable to wear and provide an ergonomic fit. This can help to reduce the incidence of workers removing gloves who find them uncomfortable and subsequently putting themselves at risk.
Steve Shale, Marketing Manager of Globus said, “We are delighted to be showcasing our hand protection solutions containing innovative technology at ADIPEC. Oil and gas workers shouldn’t be at risk of hand injuries caused by ineffective PPE and when hand safety challenges are analysed, specific task-related gloves can be specified. Our gloves are designed to meet the rigorous requirements of the oil and gas industry and also enhance the wearer’s performance which can ultimately boost productivity - and this is definitely good for the business budget.”
In conjunction with Health and Safety teams, Globus can help build bespoke hand protection policies for organisations operating in this sector. The Globus range fulfils all legal obligations to provide safe PPE in the workplace, contributing to widespread wearer acceptance, while simultaneously delivering value for money.
