Adapting to a new normal
There is no doubt that the recent pandemic has had a big impact on organisations around the globe. As restrictions ease and life returns to a ‘new normal’, now more than ever safety will play an important role in enabling teams to operate efficiently and effectively.
While the world of work may never be exactly the same again, a crisis can be a trigger for positive change. As we return with a renewed sense of appreciation and vigilance, never has embedding a culture of safety been more important within the workplace.
Head and face protection will now be required in almost every industry. Workers in all situations need to be focused on their task, confident in their PPE and assured they can get on with their job, safely.
Integrated head and face protection
Adil Afzal, Customer Marketing Manager, MSA Safety Middle East, comments:

Full face visors, tested and approved with a safety helmet, will help provide reliable protection and full compliance with safety standards.
