PROTECTIVE CLOTHING


PROTECTING THE WIND-POWER WORKFORCE


When it comes to health and safety in industrial workplaces, protective clothing and related products are absolutely vital. In this article, protective-clothing specialists OAASIS explain why worker safety and comfort are so important in unforgiving offshore environments, and how their products can help.


OAASIS Group Ltd is a leading supplier of protective clothing, PPE (personal protective equipment) and MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) equipment. The group serves both on- and offshore industries, including the UK’s fast-growing wind energy sector, and has bases in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, close to the centres of the industries it serves. The company has grown to become one of the largest independent supply companies in the UK, serving clients around the world.


Having supported the oil and gas and marine support sectors for many years, it was a natural move for them to start serving the renewable industry. The group now has over ten years’ experience of providing PPE and MRO to support the construction, operation and maintenance of wind farms.


RAISING THE STANDARD


In a critical area such as employee safety, clients appreciate the reassurance of third- party accreditation. OAASIS has recently achieved the ISO 9001:2008 standard in Quality Management, which covers the quality of service supplied by the group as well as the level of innovation.


The company has also been awarded an accreditation in Health and Safety Management (OHSAS 18001:2007), ensuring safety and security in the workplace, and an ISO 14001:2004 accreditation for Environmental


Management that demonstrates an ongoing commitment to environmental best practice.


PROTECTING HEAD AND HANDS OAASIS offers garments to protect every part of the body in any working situation, from lightweight coveralls and waterproofs to thermal under-layers and high-visibility trousers, shirts or jackets. The group works with leading brands to offer protective clothing in many styles, colours and sizes, all ideal for use in the wind-energy industry.


FEATURE SPONSOR


Protecting the head and body may seem obvious, but it’s still essential. In many industrial environments, hard hats and safety footwear are mandatory. Glasses or goggles prevent foreign objects or debris damaging the eyes, while masks provide respiratory protection against airborne dust. The company offers a full range of head, eye and respiratory protection, all sourced from premium manufacturers.


A worker’s hands are their most important tool, and often the most exposed. For safety, comfort and productivity, they have to be fully protected against cuts, cold and burns. Impact-resistant gloves, welding gauntlets or gloves with climbing grip provide the protection workers need to do their jobs in safety and comfort.
