3M introduces the latest innovative personal protective solutions to Sri Lanka

3M Sri Lanka’s Occupational Health and Environmental Safety division, together with the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety - Sri Lanka (NIOSH) recently concluded a week-long series of events for National Safety Week in a bid to create a safety culture in Sri Lanka through educating relevant industries and the public towards occupational safety and health risks in the workplace and related solutions.

3M Sri Lanka conducted a series of events during the week 5 to 12 October, working with diverse industries and raising awareness of occupational safety and health solutions. The company introduced spill kits and educated workers regarding 3M's powered air system and ‘Peltor’ communication systems at a leading power plant. 3M further introduced the latest innovative personal protective solutions to the oil drilling and mining sector.

3M also brought in industry expert Vinay Pathak from 3M India to conduct a seminar for the Colombo Fire Department. With his previous experience in dealing with fire brigades, he lent his expertise by demonstrating 3M's Peltor™ MT Series throat microphone and ear plug combination, which is specifically designed for situations and environments where conventional microphones are ineffective or cannot be used. It also picks up vibrations from the user’s voice box for excellent voice recognition, allows clear communication in high-noise environments with ear muffs and adapts to any portable radio with Push-to-Talk (PTT) adaptors.
