Safety Tip of the Week:

Week of May 20, 2019

When it comes to understanding body armor there can be confusion over which type of body armor protects against which type of ammunition.  Understanding the NIJ 0101.06 armor protection levels is clearly explained.  The term "Bullet Proof" is a widely used term that is inaccurate and paints a picture that it cannot be penetrated.  Any body armor has the potential to be penetrated.  There are various levels of protection that must be adhered to in the law enforcement world.  The (Justice Technology Information Center) JTIC Understanding NIJ 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels is a snapshot of the projectile threats and classification of body armor related to these threats.  Here is NIJ complete info on Body Armor


Head Protection

Head Protection in an industrial setting is an important aspect of a safety program.  Workers are constantly being exposed to head injuries and should be provided the necessary protective head gear to keep them safe while performing their jobs.  Protection from falling objects, lateral protection from low hanging objects and protection against electrical head hazards should be provided by the employer as part of their safety program.  Head protection must meet the guidelines as outlined in ANSI Z89.1-1986 and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.135.
