Milwaukee Tool is launching a new line of safety solutions for the jobsite.

The initial line will include a range of hard hats, safety glasses, high visibility safety vests, respirators, and hearing protection, as well as an extension of their current glove offering.

“We are always looking for ways to help our users get their work done faster and more efficiently, while keeping users safe. Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is critical on jobsites, but many of the current solutions on the market have experienced very little change over time. Users have had only incremental improvements to solutions that already lack versatility, flexibility, and durability. This lack of innovation has led some users to resort to altering their jobsite protection to maximize productivity at the expense of safety,” said Zach Richman, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Milwaukee intends to disrupt the personal safety market with solutions designed for the challenges users face and offer new features they’ve demanded for years.”

Milwaukee strategically designed their new hard hats to adapt to the jobsite. The hats feature a BOLT Hard Hat Headlamp Mount that enables users to easily secure their headlamp to the front or back of their hard hat without having to strap it in. With this feature, users can utilize their headlamp and other accessories simultaneously. The hard hats also feature six total accessory slots—four BOLT accessory slots and two universal accessory slots, allowing users to customize their hard hat for the application.

The tool manufacturer is also introducing three lines of eye protection: Safety Glasses, Performance Safety Glasses, and Performance Safety Glasses with Gasket. All eye protection will be available in both clear and tinted models. The Safety Glasses are equipped with anti-fog and anti-scratch lenses to ensure that users’ vision stays unobstructed on the jobsite, and a flexible nose bridge provides a better, more comfortable fit.

The new High Visibility Performance Safety Vest comes complete with 15 reinforced pockets, a clear ID holder, and a zippered rear tablet pocket that enables users to carry more. The vest has a comfortable padded collar and a reinforced pass-through for fall protection.

For increased comfort and productivity on the jobsite, Milwaukee’s new N95 Valved Respirators (with and without Gasket) come equipped with a valve that reduces heat inside by 10 degrees. For an improved fit, the respirators are equipped with soft, adjustable straps and a flexible nose bridge. The N95 Valved Respirator with Gasket incorporates a comfortable, tight-sealing gasket for an even better fit.

Milwaukee’s new Ear Plugs and Reusable Corded Ear Plugs offer all day comfort. The ear plugs are made of soft, comfortable foam and the reusable corded ear plugs are made of soft silicone. Designed with a tapered shape for a better fit, the Ear Plugs expand quickly to minimize downtime on the jobsite.

A step up from Milwaukee’s current Demolition Gloves, the new Impact Demolition Gloves are built with enhanced TPR on the back of the fingertips and palms. With an ANSI/ISEA Level 2 Impact Rating, these gloves offer protection for users at high risk of hand and finger injury. the new expansion is the Goatskin Leather Glove. It is created with comfortable top grain goatskin leather and a reinforced palm for a longer life, the company said.
