The Australian/ New Zealand Glove standards have been based on the European standards to ensure safety in the workplace. The following sections of the EN standards and AS/ NZS 2161 Occupational Protective Gloves, relate to WSP products:
General requirements – AS/NZS 2161.2:2005
Protection against mechanical risks – AS/NZS 2161.3:2005
Protection against Thermal risks (heat and fire) – AS/NZS 2161,4:1999
Protective gloves against chemicals and microorganisms – Determination of resistance to penetration – AS/NZS 2161.10.2:2005
Determination of resistance to permeation by chemicals – AS/NZS 2161.10.3:2005
All WSP gloves are compliant to EN 420:2003 which specifies the general requirements for glove construction, high visibility, innocuousness, cleaning, comfort and efficiency, marking and information applicable to occupational protective gloves.
AS/NZS 1716:2003 standard specifies requirements for respiratory protection devices intended to provide protection against atmospheres containing substances, which may be harmful if breathed. The standard specifies requirements, performance and testing criteria to be observed in the manufacture of respirators.
AS/NZS 1715:1994 standard sets out the principles of respiratory protection and makes recommendations for the selection, use and maintenance of respirators for personal protection against atmospheres deficient in oxygen or against harmful substances.
P2 dust/mist and fume respirators with adjustable plastic nose clip and soft foam nosepiece for comfortable custom fit. P2 designated respirators provide protection against thermally generated fumes and smoke when, for example, welding; soldering; brazing; metal cutting or pouring.
The P2v valve makes breathing easier, cooler and also extends the life of the mask.
These respirators are covered with active carbon to pre-filter organic vapours, and feature an adjustable plastic nose clip and soft foam nosepiece for comfortable, custom fit. These respirators also contain active carbon, protecting against mechanically generated particulates and mists of sizes commonly encountered in industry, and mining dusts (i.e. Coal, copper, zinc, lead; dusts from fibreglass, asbestos, timber, cement). The valve adds comfort and helps to extend the longevity of the mask.
Operational temperature range for use 0 to +50 degrees C Disposable respirators are not suitable for use in:
Disposable respirators are designed to last throughout an 8 hour shift. However, the effectiveness of the respirator will deteriorate faster in hot, dusty, humid conditions or in the presence of oil and oil mists. Please note that respirators should not be cleaned or reused. Instead, replace the entire mask when shift ends or if the filter medium becomes clogged.
It is recommended to store the respirators at 20~30°C in a clean dry environment.
AS/NZS 1337:2010 Occupational eye and face protection specifies requirements for eye and face protection devices intended to provide protection against flying objects. The standard covers performance and testing of impact and penetration resistance, optical properties, and product lifetime.
Every pair of Scope® safety glasses supplied by WSP blocks 99% of incoming UV and meetAS/NZS 1337.1 Medium Impact Protection requirements, withstanding impacts of objects moving 45m/s.
Spilmax® spill kits supplied by WSP have been tested by ASTM International for Adsorbent and Absorbent performance under ASTM F726 and ASTM F716.
