Magid launches hearing protectionPosted on 24/10/2008
A new range of hearing protection has been launched by Magid Glove & Safety, it has been announced.
The company's E2 line includes the IHP532C earplugs, which have been designed specifically for those working in food processing or other trades needing metal-detectable protection.
Available in bright blue, the corded product features polyurethane foam and can be purchased with a sealed polybag.
'The E2 IHP532C Earplug's highly visible bright blue colour and embedded, metal-detectable, small brass ball allow for enhanced visual and automatic detection for safe removal,' the company explained in a statement.
'Unlike many other metal-detectable earplugs, the brass ball in the centre of the E2 IHP532C Earplug is securely encased in foam with no exposed metal.'
Last week, the Health and Safety Executive urged firms to ensure they adequately protect workers from high noise levels.
An inspector for the body, Judith McNulty-Green, made the call after a Lincoln company was fined for failing to reduce the level of noise its employees were exposed to.
