Industrial Protection — Worker Safety Is Our Business
Industrial workers may have a variety of responsibilities while they’re on the job. We only have one — helping to safeguard people against hazards with industrial protection solutions from DuPont.
To be successful, industries depend on their workers. Behind these workers are families and communities who depend on DuPont industrial protection to help keep their loved ones safe. For over 40 years, our scientists, engineers, and technicians have addressed the world’s safety needs with the best in safety technologies and innovations. We apply real-world experience as owners and operators of industrial manufacturing facilities around the world — offering our own workers the same science-based solutions that we offer yours, including some of the most trusted and innovative brands in the industry, like Kevlar®, Nomex®, Tyvek®, and Tychem®.
DuPont is collaborating with companies around the world, from industrialised to developing nations, to help them understand the applicable safety regulations for the protection of all workers. So whether you’re concerned about meeting revised industry standards or looking for newer, safer ways to provide your workers with enhanced protection, we’ll help you address that responsibility.
