Materials for personal protection gear

Personal safety


For personal, social, and economic reasons, safety has become a public concern, and as a result is increasingly subject to official and statutory requirements. In addition to organizational measures that detect and eliminate sources of hazards, the significance of personal protection gear has steadily increased as well. This included the recognition that not only was it necessary to optimize the effectiveness of protection gear, but also its comfort and appearance to make it more acceptable to users and increase the level of protection.
