Honeywell was recently selected as a winner for three products in World of Safety and Health Asia magazine’s World of Safety and Health Asia Award 2021, recognizing Honeywell’s innovative solutions that can improve health and safety at work.
Honeywell was selected as an award recipient in two product categories: health, recognizing products and services that protect workers from getting ill, and safety, recognizing products and services that protect workers from physical injuries. The panel of judges for this year’s award included key opinion leaders from Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
Winning products from Honeywell include:
Honeywell Dual Layer Face Cover – Health Award Winner
Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global community learned that wearing face covers can help slow the spread of transmissible viruses. The Honeywell Dual Layer Face Cover incorporates Honeywell’s decades of expertise in producing respiratory-protection solutions, including an innovative 3D knit design that contours to the wearer’s face and offers maximum breathability. This protective face covering is comfortable, easy to clean and features a stylish design.
VeriShield™ 100 Series Passive Earmuffs – Health Award Winner
Exposure to excessive noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss, and loud sounds can damage the sensitive structures of the inner ear, causing noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). NIHL affects millions of workers, and according to the National Institutes of Health, 16% to 24% of all hearing loss cases reported worldwide are caused by exposure to unsafe noise levels on job sites. The Honeywell VeriShield™ 100 Series Passive Earmuffs are well suited for environments with noise levels ranging from high to low, can be easily worn with other personal protective equipment such as eye protection and is available in a range of styles that make it easy for workers to find the best earmuff for their work needs.
Flextril™ Nitrile Chemical Gloves – Safety Award Winner
When it comes to hand protection, many chemical gloves can be thick and can cause discomfort from poor dexterity and hand fatigue. To relieve workers of these challenges, the Honeywell Flextril™ Nitrile Chemical Gloves offers high chemical protection, reliable cut resistance, wet and dry grip, enhanced dexterity and improved comfort. It also features a printed QR code directly on the glove, making it easy for workers to choose the right glove for their job by scanning the code from their smartphone.
