Providing you with the Tools for Effective Health and Safety Compliance
Here at Alec Tiranti, we are committed to ensuring you are provided with both the finest and most essential items and materials for your studio, and the necessary information and advice regarding your health and safety when using them. In this way, you can keep your artist’s studio or workshop fully stocked, while also making sure you are prepared and equipped to respond to any potential hazards that may arise while you work. Today, we will be taking a look at the health and safety products and services we provide at Alec Tiranti.
Health and safety equipment
We stock a wide range of equipment designed to protect you and your health while you work. The nature of sculpting and professions working with materials brings a number of potential risks that while easy to avoid, are even easier to stay properly protected against. Our eye protection goggles, for instance, are a central form of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that will shield your eyes from any dangerous contact with airborne substances. These include wrap-around eye protection glasses, anti-mist glasses, and goggles for molten metal; these will provide you with a protective barrier from dust, small airborne particles, sparks, and anything else that could cause harm to your eyes.
For those working around substances and materials that expel airborne particles such as dust, toxic chemical gas, or smoke, a respirator will filter contaminated air for you to breathe while you work.
We are equipped and trained to advise you on how to best use your respirator to ensure you use it properly, safely, and get the most out of it as possible. For instance, when using a respirator, there are several signs one can be aware of in order to know exactly when their breathing has becoming unsafe. Laboured breathing, for instance, is a sign of a build-up of particle residue on the filter and tells that the respirator needs to be disposed of and replaced.
Further, should you be able to detect any odours or tastes, this is a warning sign from your respirator that it is damaged and must be disposed of immediately. Ultimately, a respirator should be adequate for the hazard at hand, reducing the exposure to a level that is required to protect your health as the wearer. It should also be suitable, in that it is the right fit for you as the wearer, the task, and the environment.
At Alec Tiranti, we are able to advise you on the right choice of health and safety equipment for your needs. To do so, we take into consideration the type of hazardous substance you are dealing with, the amount of this substance, the form of the substance, the type of work you are carrying out, and any other variables that may influence the type of respirator required.
