October is National Protect Your Hearing Month

Did you know that hearing loss is the third most common chronic health condition in the United States? Almost twice as many people report hearing loss as report diabetes or cancer. Unfortunately, there is no treatment for hearing loss—Damaged inner ear cells do not grow back. Take care of your hearing by protecting your ears from permanent damage. Always wear hearing protection when around sounds louder than 85 dB for an extended period of time. Hearing loss can affect your safety on the job, and decrease your quality of life.

From disposable and reusable earplugs, to semi-aural hearing protection and earmuffs—we have what you need to protect your hearing, and if you already have hearing loss, take steps to keep it from getting worse. 

Nelson-Jameson also offers a wide variety of products available for personnel protection. Ask about our eye, head and face, and respiratory products. We also feature ergonomic products to help support your back, wrists, elbows, knees and ankles.

Contact us today to discuss what products we carry to help keep your plant’s workforce healthy and productive.

Feeling in the Dark About High-Visibility Clothing Standards?

The need to be seen is critical for employee safety, especially for those who work around moving vehicles and equipment. This is why we have a wide range of high-visibility apparel that meets the ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 Standard.

Take a look at our high-visibility products here!

The ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 standard provides a uniform, authoritative guide for the design, performance specifications, and use of high-visibility and reflective apparel, including safety vests, shirts, pants, and outerwear. The standard breaks down high-visibility apparel into Types and Performance Classes. The environment in which the worker is wearing the garment dictates the type selected, while the performance classes provide a range of design options that correspond with the level of risk, and the certified high-visibility material and certified reflective tape needs of the wearer. To learn more about the breakdown of Types and Performance Classes, review the chart on our Learning Center.
