The arrival of Spring means business picks back up for companies whose work tends to be outdoors. This is a great time of year to perform a safety audit, to be sure everything is in great working order before heading out. 

Meeting Your Welding Safety Needs

Posted by Obbco Safety & Supply on 3/2/2017 to Eye Protection

Welding is a safe occupation when appropriate safety measures are taken. Some of the hazards one can expect to encounter are dust, fumes, heat, and radiation- and this is where OBBCO comes in! 

What Do I Need to Safely Repaint My Boat?

Posted by OBBCO on 2/14/2017 to General
With warm weather on the way, it’s a great time to talk boat painting safety. Boat maintenance is hard work, and we’re here to ensure you have exactly what you need to take on the job safely. 

Let OBBCO Manage Your Inventory!

Posted by OBBCO Safety Supply on 11/29/2016 to General
You and your team rely on a variety of equipment and materials on a regular basis. While the needs may vary day to day or by industry, there is nothing worse for your workers' safety than running out of a vital piece of safety equipment. 

When you need the right pair of gloves, a face mask, reflective vest, hard hat, or respirator, you want to know that you have these items in stock. You won't always have the chance to catch a supply running low early enough to say, "We're running low on ____, we should place an order." Here at OBBCO we don't believe you should have to rely on that method. 

OBBCO Safety & Supply can monitor your inventory to keep track of what you're using and replenish your supplies when you're running low. 

What Can Go Wrong If You’re Using the Wrong Equipment?

Posted by OBBCO Safety Supply on 10/24/2016 to General

You may be buying the right gear, but you might be using the wrong equipment for the job at hand. Other times, it may not be what you wear, but how you wear it. When jobs require PPE or other safety gear, using the wrong item can be unnecessarily risky.

 

Here are just a few of the common examples we see with our customers that highlight the importance of always using the right safety equipment:

Gear Up for Hurricane Matthew with OBBCO

Posted by OBBCO Safety & Supply on 10/4/2016 to General
The category 4 hurricane that is currently moving its way up the Caribbean is expected to reach North Carolina and Hampton Roads by the weekend. The northern coast of North Carolina and Virginia are likely to feel at least some of the storm’s fury with heavy rain, gusty winds, large waves and dangerous surf. Tidal flooding may occur depending on the track of the storm, as will the amount of rain and severity of wind.

Hurricane and Summer Storm Preparedness: Part 2

Posted by OBBCO Safety & Supply, Inc. on 7/15/2016 to General

In our last blog, we talked about the importance of creating and implementing a summer storm preparedness plan for your business as we head into hurricane season.

Now, we would like to share our own emergency storm and hurricane supply checklist for the necessary gear and equipment to keep you safe in the event of a major storm:

Hurricane and Summer Storm Preparedness: Part 1

Posted by on 6/1/2016 to General

Being located on the Atlantic coast, our location in Southeast Virginia is at risk during hurricane season of storm surges, flooding, and extreme winds from big storms. Predictions for the 2016 hurricane season are that it will be higher likelihood of heavy storms than average.

Hurricanes and strong summer storms can cause downed power lines, fallen branches or entire trees, damage to buildings from rain and wind, power outages and water damage to electrical equipment.

From your safety experts at OBBCO Safety and Supply, we want to share some tips to keep your staff and equipment safe in the event of a hurricane or severe storm.

OBBCO Safety and Supply is your one-stop destination for all the waterproof or windproof gear you may need this spring.

Hand Protection and Safety for Outdoor Winter Work

Posted by Obbco Safety & Supply on 1/29/2016 to General
Much like the way employers worry about the risks of heat exhaustion, sunburn and dehydration for their crews in the summer, there are equally important safety risks and hazards to consider while working outside in cold temperatures. Freezing temperatures, wind and snow not only draw heat away from the body and can lead to injury or hypothermia if stuck with the improper gear.

What Type of Eye Protection Do I Need?

Posted by Obbco Safety & Supply on 11/18/2015 to 3M
While most people understand the need for eye protection, far too many choose the wrong type of protection, or no protection at all.  According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), the two main reasons people suffer eye injuries at work are not wearing eye protection and not wearing the right type of eye protection for the task at hand.

What is the Difference Between Ear Plugs and Ear Muffs?

Posted by OBBCO Safety & Supply on 10/15/2015 to 3M

Fall is a time of downed trees and limbs, which means chainsaws, bush hogs and chippers get a workout. When wood-cutting tools are in use, chances are your ears are getting a workout, too. Chain saws can have a sound intensity of 110 dBA, which means operating for only two minutes without ear protection can damage your hearing.

Safety in Summer!

Posted by Administrator on 7/13/2015 to General

Weekly weather reports are consistently showing temperatures above the 90-degree mark. Such temperatures put employees of strenuous environments at risk for heat stroke, dehydration, and other forms of heat stress. It is imperative to keep employees (and employers) safe in such conditions.

Workers at risk of heat stress include outdoor workers and workers in hot environments such as firefighters, bakery workers, farmers, construction workers, miners, boiler room workers, factory workers, and others. Workers at greater risk of heat stress include those who are 65 years of age or older, are overweight, have heart disease or high blood pressure, or take medications that may be affected by extreme heat.

The Need for PPE

Posted by Administrator on 5/29/2015 to 3M
Not every office needs to use Personal Protection Equipment like noise-reduction earmuffs, eye protection, or respirators; however there are many industries where this kind of equipment can save company medical costs as well as lives on the job.

3M, the Clear Choice in Eye Protection

Posted by Administrator on 5/20/2015 to 3M
People often say “the eyes are the window to the soul,” and while that might be true, your eyes are also extremely vital to your continued well-being and should be protected in dangerous environments. This sounds like common information right? Well, in reality approximately 2,000 U.S. workers sustain a work-related eye injury that requires medical treatment every day.

Have you heard that 3M offers premier ear protection solutions?

Posted by Administrator on 5/20/2015 to 3M
If you sit in your office chair or in your home and take a moment to listen to all the sounds around you, you may be surprised at the intricate melodies you hear. Birds chirping, dogs barking, people talking, music two cubicles away, traffic outside, the tic-tac of many keyboards operating in unison, and plenty of other sounds spring forth quickly. Without hearing protection, employees of some occupations could end up missing out on these small sounds due to hearing loss.

Breathe Easy with Respirators from 3M!

Posted by Administrator on 5/11/2015 to 3M
Respirators come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and models for multiple industries and range from military use to personal health grade. They can be disposable, reusable, or even powered and coupled with a face shield. Deciding what respirator best fits your business can be a daunting task, but our friends at 3M have an immense inventory to satisfy your safety specifications.
