Honeywell Wins New Product of the Year Award for Respiratory Protection
September 20, 2022
Honeywell’s North® Primair 900 (PA900) Series Headgear was recently selected as a winner in Occupational Health & Safety magazine’s New Product of the Year contest, recognizing Honeywell’s best in class respiratory protection that helps keep workers safe. This new line of ergonomic and lightweight headpieces delivers an all-in-one eye, face, head and respiratory safety solution.
"Keeping workers safe on the job requires innovative, user-centered personal protective equipment to drive user compliance, so that workers will wear their gear consistently and correctly to avoid workplace injuries," says Kristin Ware, senior global marketing manager, Honeywell Respiratory Protection. "Now, with our new PA900 series, workers can get the protection they need without sacrificing comfort or productivity."
Oil and gas, chemical and manufacturing workers are often required to use powered air-purifying respirators (PAPRs) to protect them from inhaling harmful dust, vapors and gas. With the PA900 Series Headgear, Honeywell designers delivered a solution that allows users to perform their jobs, breathe comfortably and help users stay safe from workplace hazards. This new product is designed to make PAPR headgear lighter and more comfortable for the wearer because of its ergonomic design and is easy to put on and take off. Notably, the PA920 also won a 2021 Red Dot design award, recognizing its design and ability to marry functionality and safety.
