FOCUS ON PROTECTION: Dates for your diary!
Posted on: 13/01/2022
We know you “focus on protection” for your workplace every day but here are some special dates that we believe you will find interesting and beneficial: –
1st to 7th February is Tinnitus Awareness Week. Tower will team up with the British Safety Industry Federation to explain “Listen Today, Hear Tomorrow!”
7th April is World Health Day.
Foot Health Week runs from 12th to 18th April. Good safety footwear can limit musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) which account for a lot of lost working days.
Did you know some PPE workwear includes UV protection? 3rd to 9th May is Sun Awareness Week!
World Hand Hygiene Day is on 5th May. The right glove (PPE) is important, and we’ve all got used to using more sanitiser nowadays – Tower can help with both.
Hard hat awareness week falls mid-June – Tower have a guide on caring for safety helmets.
Ladies PPE workwear is in the Tower catalogue, and we’ll draw special attention to it on 23rd June when it’s Women in Engineering Day.
1st August is World Lung Cancer Day. I’m one of several Tower people specially trained in the fitting of respirators.
Global Handwashing Day is 15th October. Speak to Tower for soap, paper towel and sanitiser solutions
In November it’s Road Safety Week. We have hi-vis garments available.
If you plan to use one of these awareness days or weeks to help engagement in safety in your workplace, please contact me directly and I will be happy to help.
