Saturday, May 2, 2015Description :
Honeywell, the world's largest provider of personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions from head to toe, is joining collective reflection on World Health and Safety Day, Hui.

Act No. 91-1414 of December 1991 amended the French Labor Code and the French Public Health Code with a view to promoting the prevention of occupational hazards and transcribing European directives on occupational safety and health .

Prevention of falls at the height is also a priority in the development of solutions by the company which designs harnesses developed on the basis of thorough studies of user needs and rigorous field trials, to improve by For example the speed of installation and the great freedom of movement once worn.
