DuPont is more focused than ever on providing innovative protection solutions and expert technical support, tailored to meet the specific needs of electricians and workers in the utilities industry around the world.
Because their safety is our business, electricians and workers in the utilities industry can rely on the world-class people, products and innovation that have made DuPont a trusted partner in personal protection.
With a wide range of industry-leading personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions and a global network of PPE specialists, technical experts and manufacturing, DuPont is uniquely suited to provide the protection and comfort every worker deserves to help them face a range of workplace hazards with confidence.
Now more than ever, utility companies across the globe face increased competition, stricter regulations, limited government subsidies and social pressure for more clean energy sources.
To remain competitive, companies are upgrading to more efficient generation, transmission and distribution systems. These upgrades involve an important diversification of energy portfolio with a reduction in the single energy source from fossil fuels to different renewable sources.
As a result, workers in the utilities industry, who are responsible for providing electricity as an essential need for the world, are facing new and multiple workplace hazards in a very dynamic work environment. DuPont offers a broad range of PPE solutions to address these hazards, including: Nomex® garments for thermal and electric arc flash hazards; gloves made with Kevlar® for mechanical and multi-hazard protection; Tyvek® garments for protection against fine particle hazards and low level liquid splashes; Tychem® garments and gloves for protection against a wide range of chemicals; and ProShield® garments for protection against dirt and grime.

Arc flash hazards can be addressed either with arc flash suits or with layering systems, both of which have different characteristics and properties, depending on what the user is looking for.
