Protective Industrial Products Inc., a leading supplier of hand protection and PPE, has announced the launch of the PIP ESSENTIALS SafetyBook, a succinct best practices guide featuring basic protocols related to safe distancing, hygiene and new PPE.
The PIP ESSENTIALS SafetyBook is a collaboration between key members of PIP’s operations, marketing and product management teams. It utilizes their firsthand experience with procedures related to working while maintaining safe distances and practicing proper hygiene to help minimize the spread of contagious disease in a workplace setting. The book was designed to be freely shared with PIP’s distributor partners as a tool to help advise their customers as they engage in preparations to reopen their businesses.
The PIP ESSENTIALS SafetyBook marks the second phase of the PIP ESSENTIALS program, which focuses on PIP doing its part to help restart and reopen America. Additional elements of phase two of the PIP ESSENTIALS program include a complementary SafetyBook Checklist that companies can use to manage adherence with the protocols, procedures and best practices outlined in the PIP ESSENTIALS SafetyBook, as well as a curated list of hand-selected PPE from PIP’s product management team.

The VERTEX helmet is designed with a six-point suspension system that conforms to the shape of the user’s head for maximum comfort.

The STRATO is a remarkably lightweight and comfortable helmet due to its dual inner foam construction. The liner incorporates an expanded polypropylene and expanded polystyrene foam to reduce weight and achieve superb shock absorption.
