CHANNEL

Dynamic and colossal, the construction market accounts for nearly four percent of America’s gross domestic product and is responsible for keeping over six million Americans employed. PIP sets its goal on keeping each and every one of them safe.

“I have been in the construction field for more than 20 years. In my experience, I have found nothing that beats the quality and durability of Protective Industrial Products’ glove line.”

PPE THAT SAVES LIVES

Over the years, the advancement in the use of mechanical equipment, along with stricter regulatory compliance, has helped to prevent accidents and reduce injuries. However, the fact remains that construction is amongst the highest risk industries to work in. Nearly 12% of worker fatalities involve construction workers, an alarming 14 deaths per week. Around 4.2 injuries have been reported per every 100 workers, with an average cost per claim around $38,000. This negatively affects our economy, but more importantly is a significant financial burden, on top of the physical pain and suffering, that extends to families and loved ones.

That is why PIP has invested in developing products that meet and surpass industry standards. We believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Be Seen, Be safe

Construction jobs are not limited to the daytime, and it is essential to be easily seen in all light conditions. PIP has been a leader in ubiquitous adoption of Hi-Vis garments for all applications where workers are at risk. It's no longer just for road workers. For prudence, even mandating Hi-Vis T-shirts as a standard is an extra ounce of prevention. PIP has it all.

Pioneers in TPR technology

maximum performance, maximum safety.

Our high-performance glove styles are designed to combine comfort, safety performance, and maximum protection. Thermo plastic rubber (TPR) gives additional cut and pinch point protection where it matters most, on the back of the hand, fingers, knuckles and thumb.

For example, the Maximum Safety® TuffMax3 and TuffMax5 provide users with cut and pinch point protection in general duty handling and oily conditions. The HPPE fiber shell is light weight and provides excellent dexterity, tactile sensitivity and cut resistance that is available in EN cut level 3 and EN cut level 5. They also feature a MicroSurface nitrile-coated padded palm for an enhanced grip in wet and dry work conditions such as petrochem, construction, auto repair, demo, mining and fabrication.
