The new “HEAT PROTECTION compact” package, which JUTEC will be showing at the GIFA trade fair, is the perfect toolkit for safety officers in companies to ensure that their colleagues exposed to heat while performing their work receive the best possible protection. Unique in the industry, the new concept combines a detailed analysis of the situation at the workplace with recommendations for the selection of Personal Protective Equipment most suitable for the specific use case.

Workplaces exposed to heat, as frequently found in the steel and aluminium industries, in foundries and at heat treatment plants, call for individual solutions because every working environment has different requirements on the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Safety officers have to make sure that they comply with the wide and varied range of complex rules and regulations applicable in this field.

To facilitate this challenging task, JUTEC provides its customers the “HEAT PROTECTION compact” toolkit, a hands-on approach to helping safety officers select the best possible equipment for the job at hand. It contains an action plan for all steps from analyzing the situation at the respective workplace up to certifications required by the PPE regulation.

JUTEC experts support their customers through a five-stage selection process:

  1. Analysis of the current situation at the workplace
  2. Risk and hazard assessment – mandatory for every project
  3. Recommendations for the selection of the most suitable, approved fabric and the entire protective clothing, considering safety and wearing comfort aspects.
  4. Proof of safety, e.g. by means of a spill test with molten metal
  5. Certification: The JUTEC label certifies that the heat protection solution employed complies with all applicable rules and regulations

Stephan Muscheites, Sales Director at JUTEC, is familiar with the situation on the shop floor: ”The safety officers in the companies are constantly confronted with ever new rules and regulations affecting all kinds of safety aspects. In this context, heat-exposed workplaces play only a minor role. To support the safety offers, we have developed “HEAT PROTECTION compact”: With this, we take our customers through a well-structured selection process culminating in the certification of the solution chosen. Thus, our customers can rest assured that they comply with all requirements of the PPE regulation on workplaces exposed to heat and protect their employees as best as absolutely possible.”
