Ebola Virus Brings Protective Apparel to World's Attention
 
While it is only one component of personal protection from the deadly Ebola virus, protective clothing is a first line of defense against contaminated blood, saliva, and/or other body fluids. Gowns, facemasks, gloves, and boots must comply with standards for blood-borne pathogens. Additionally, health workers on the front lines must be properly trained regarding donning, doffing, and disposal. Even so, it is very important to realize that most commercial fabrics are not tested against specific viruses such as Ebola. DuPont has more information concerning protective clothing for the Ebola Virus disease, as well as links to organizations combating the spreading outbreak.

Protection from Fire and Ice
 
Working in extreme environments — like those found in the oil, gas, or mining industries — often requires fire retardant apparel, even when it's really cold. That's why Honeywell Safety Products recently introduced its TNV Series of cold conditions fire retardant (FR) clothing. A 9 oz quilted layer of insulation offers warmth without bulk, down to -35 C, as it protects against flash fire hazards.

Understanding Arc-flash Mitigation
 
OSHA estimates 80% of "electrically related accidents and fatalities among qualified electrical workers" are caused by industrial arc-flash events. Not surprisingly, arc-flash awareness among plant professionals is growing with installation of arc-flash relays a priority. Relay selection, however, is easier said than done. This white paper and related video shed some light on the subject.

How Interactive Packaging Protects Consumers
 
The world's going digital and that includes packaging. Soon, interactive packages will deliver more than entertainment and brand-building hoopla. This article projects the potential of RFID, NFC, and Bluetooth — such as safety benefits from sensors that warn about product spoilage or convey, via smartphone scan, whether a food item contains glutens or peanuts.
