Oil and Gas Personal Protective Equipment
Frontline professionals in the oil and gas industry face a vast number of life-threatening chemical hazards on a daily basis.
Danger lurks in every activity, from building well foundations and erecting lease tanks, to chemically treating or hydraulically fracturing wells.
In off-shore drilling, the dangers range from blow-outs, hydrogen
Even in normally safe refineries, certain activities – process sampling, inspection, handling or recharging catalyst – pose chemical risks as high as anywhere else on the planet.
Workers are also potentially exposed to flames and fires and other consequences of explosions.
Workers need strong protection against all of these potential perils, and to be able to comfortably work in their protective garments for their entire shift.
DuPont seeks to provide durable solutions that help resist and repel lethal exposure.
