World COPD Day

1.4 million people in the UK are living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), with about the same number believed to be undiagnosed. There are also 21.9 million working days lost due to COPD.

Mammoth Workwear supply a comprehensive range of EN 149 Respiratory protection products which will protect the wearer from the inhalation of airborne particles such as sawdust, fibreglass and asbestos. The level of protection and what each individual mask actively protects against varies. A typical dust mask will offer protection against most regular types of dust, however to ensure protection against chemicals and dangerous substances such as asbestos, a half or full face fitted mask is more versatile as you can tailor their usage with filters to adapt to your working environment.
