Safety is more than just following requirements and regulations; it is caring for your employees.
Employees are the heart and soul to every business, and keeping them safe should be every businesses #1 priority. Many businesses may have regulations about the kind of safety equipment required to be worn during work hours.
Let KYANA equip your employees and visitors with the correct gear to ensure their safety and to follow OSHA regulations!
What is OSHA?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for ensuring safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by: authorizing enforcement of the standards developed under the Act; assisting and encouraging the States in their efforts to ensure safe and healthful working conditions and providing for research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health.
Why wear Eye protection?
According to The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), about 2,000 American workers have eye injuries during work each day. 90% of these injuries according to eye doctors and experts could have been prevented or lessened by wearing the correct eye protection. The two main reason eye injuries occur are:
1. Not wearing any eye protection
2. Wearing the incorrect eye protection

Gloves and their different uses
Safety and protection is enhanced when you have the right glove for the right application. The following is a list of gloves and their appropriate application, according to the National Safety Council:
Cotton and Fabric Gloves
These can keep hands clean and protect against abrasions, but may not be strong enough to handle work with rough or sharp materials.
Coated Fabric Gloves
This type of glove provides superior grip and extra protection compared to plain cotton gloves.
Rubber, Plastic or Synthetic Gloves
These types of glove can be used when cleaning or working with oils, solvents and other chemicals.
These should be used when welding, as the leather can resist sparks and moderate heat. The risk of cuts and abrasions also can be minimized by wearing leather gloves.
These gloves are recommended for welding, furnace and foundry work, as they provide reflective and insulating protection.
These have a wide variety of industrial applications. They are cut- and abrasion-resistant and provide protection against both heat and cold.
Chemical & Liquid - Resistant Gloves
Several types of gloves help protect against specific chemicals
Butyl Rubber Gloves
Protection from nitric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid and peroxide.
Natural Latex Rubber Gloves
This type of glove can provide protection against water solutions or acids, alkalis, salts, and ketones.
Protection from hydraulic fluids, gasoline, alcohols and organic acids.
Nitrile Rubber Gloves
This type of glove can provide protection against chlorinated solvents.
Workers are often exposed to the cumulative effects of noise in their work (and home) environments. OHSA lists clear limits on noise exposure. A successful hearing protection program has hearing protective products that are readily available, comfortable and effective. When hearing protective products are available, comfortable and effective, enforcement of a hearing protection program is enhanced.
