He also emphasized on the emerging needs of Anti-static PPE to avoid fire hazards at the workplace.

Speaking about the importance of worker health and safety, Mr. K Nandakumar, Division Manager, Personal Safety Division, 3M India said, “The need for comprehensive worker health and safety personal protective equipment solutions has never been greater. With the changing regulations, industries and technologies, people are faced with the complex task of finding the right way to help protect their workers and business. We are delighted to receive a positive response from our partners year after year as they too believe that a safe and healthy environment leads to productive workforce, ensuring better organizational performance.

Workers in pharmaceutical manufacturing companies are vulnerable to a wide range of health and safety hazards every day such as fires, chemical explosions/reactions and exposure to toxins. Some can immediately impact their lives, while others may go unnoticed until later in life. With 3M’s Personal Protective Equipment employers can prevent workers from injuries and diseases, thereby creating a healthier and safer workplace environment.
