INFORMATION & IDEAS
Growth in the Middle East Cement Industry Triggers Increased Operational Risk
From boiler blasts to explosions, the risks facing the cement industry are multiple. Companies in this sector cannot simply rely on “not doing the wrong thing” to avoid accidents and repeats. They need to put proactive measures and systems in place to prevent recurrences. Learn more.
To facilitate the choice of mechanical (cut) protective clothing, both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the European Union (EU) have developed cut standards for selection criteria.

Durable, inherently fire-resistant Nomex® fiber has an excellent wear life and helps contribute to bottom-line savings.
Comfort & Heat Stress
For maximum protection against fires, the body must be covered as completely as possible with flame-resistant protective clothing. This requires long pants and long sleeves, making for hot work in warm and humid climates. Understandably, industrial workers may be concerned about potential heat stress when wearing protective apparel. Learn more about the factors that can lead to heat stress, and how DuPont brands can help offer comfort and protection in protective garments.
