Thanks to the past, we can push towards the future.
The Safeguard Compass is a result of our never-ending push for higher safety standards in the workplace. Influencers of today’s safety technology have a variety of different roots ranging from Charles Dalziel to electroreception in sharks. Read our blogs to learn the history of the industry along with the critical improvements made in employee safety.
Several personal voltages and current detectors (PVCDs) are on the market today. All are invented and intended to provide additional protection to workers who work with or around energized equipment.
Electrical safety is an important issue for everyone. Electricity is everywhere and is involved somehow in almost every task we undertake. If you ever want to get a good idea of how much we depend upon it, you can try getting through a normal day with your power shut down.
While many people focus on the changing season by looking forward to cooler weather and the coming of the holidays, utility companies and other disaster response crews are focusing on something else: they are contemplating the arrival of storms, wind, hurricanes, and blizzards.
Safeguard Equipment, already an industry leader in developing innovative Personal Voltage and Current Detectors (PVCD’s), announces a new safety solution that will change the game regarding worker safety: the COMPASS ProTM.
According to recent research published by the National Institute of Health, there are nearly 1,000 fatal injuries every year in the United States caused by electrocution, and another 30,000 non-fatal incidents.
Almost every construction project requires digging, whether you are building a single-family home or undertaking a major highway expansion project.
Over most of the country, summer brings hot, dry weather and thunderstorms. While summers have their obvious charms, there is a clear downside: as the heat continues, the risk of wildland fires increases.
As summer starts to wind down, many people begin thinking about preparations for fall. For some, it means doing things like getting ready for school and storing lawn furniture. Soon they’ll start to pack away the tank tops and swim trunks, and pull out sweaters and rain slickers.
But for storm responders, the preparation is a bit different. For them, it’s time to gear up for some hard work.
When you think of “first responders,” you usually think of firemen, policemen, or EMT’s. When disasters such as tornadoes, wildfires, explosions, earthquakes, hurricanes, and storms hit, it is natural to think about the people who engage in rescue and evacuation operations, or who provide needed medical care to the injured or displaced.
At Safeguard, we’re doing everything we can to make lineman deaths and injuries a thing of the past. So what sorts of safety equipment do linemen need? Here is a list of what we consider the top ten tools linemen need for their safety.
