Here at Lebon, we have been manufacturing protective gloves since 1973. Thanks to our experience and our expertise in production requirements, we are now the French leader in technical gloves. Health and safety at work have always been our driving force in order to meet the standards imposed by industrial safety. Today, we are committed to constantly improving the quality and performance of our products, while respecting the environment. We support the managers of industrial sites and their health and safety officers in the implementation of effective safety procedures against occupational hazards.
What is industrial safety?
Depending on the work environment, activities may present hazards (chemical risks, technological risks, health risks, etc.) that may endanger the health and safety of employees. Industrial safety is therefore based on the assessment of risks and their management, gathered in a single document. To ensure the safety of goods and people, while ensuring the short-term profitability of the company, industrial safety consists in controlling the prevention of hazards related to the workplace and reducing their consequences: to do this, industrial safety includes a set of technical provisions, human resources and internal regulations specific to facilities and people.
Industrial safety: a crucial dimension for employees
The first people concerned by industrial safety are of course the company’s employees. Whether they are operators or general staff (safety engineer, IT safety manager, quality manager, safety consultant, safety officer, project manager, team leader, etc.), they are regularly subjected to various dangers in their work environment: falling objects, the operator falling down at his workplace, risks of electrocution, exposure to toxic fumes or dangerous chemicals, etc. The list of risks is long and can be even more complex when there is a failure to comply with hygiene measures and safety instructions. Industrial safety therefore involves training teams and employees in the prevention of these risks, whether it is a matter of ensuring that hand protection equipment is worn properly or that welding equipment is sufficiently resistant. The goal is to reduce workplace accidents, injuries and harm to employees. This is a continuous improvement process, driven by teamwork.
What are the business sectors concerned by industrial safety?
At first glance, all sectors are concerned by industrial safety. But there are some areas where occupational risk and safety management is particularly important, especially for innovative companies that use hazardous materials:
- Energy – chemistry.
- Waste treatment – packaging – paper and cardboard – IT construction
- Automotive and aeronautical sectors – transport – nuclear industry.
- Pharmacy – food industry – cleaning products – toys – sport and leisure articles – subcontracting.
- Luxury industries – clothing – tools.
In each of these fields of activity, where there is a danger to the hands, the safety of the operator requires the use of protective gloves.
Facing these risks, it is necessary to be well equipped and to respect the prevention plans.
Lebon Protection: specialist in protection for industrial safety
A wide range of products for industrial safety
For many decades, Lebon Protection has been protecting people at their workstations, from head to toe, while ensuring both their safety and well-being. We offer a wide range of protective products that accompany operators on a daily basis: work gloves, in which we have become experts (welding gloves, food gloves, cold protection gloves, thermal protection gloves, etc.), as well as protective sleeves, jackets, hoods, aprons, gaiters and specific equipment adapted to welding work. We constantly strive to improve the quality of our products, thanks to technology monitoring, to ensure that those who wear them have optimal comfort and maximum safety. We follow the evolution of machines with, for example, gloves that adapt to digital technology, and we offer gloves with anti-allergic properties, all in a responsible and risk-controlled approach.
Accessible and clear industrial safety labelling
Personal protective equipment must comply with strict European standards that define the level of protection according to the identified risk. For example, for protective gloves, the main safety standards EN ISO 21420, EN 407, EN 388, EN 12477 are clearly identifiable by pictograms marked on the products. It is therefore impossible to make a mistake about the level of reliability of the gloves chosen according to the risks associated with the tasks performed: the labelling is your best guide.
