Visual Workplace Inc.
Glow Floor-Mark safety tape by Visual Workplace Inc. helps building and vehicle personnel find their way in the dark, whether it’s nighttime, during a power failure, a building fire filled with smoke, a natural disaster or other emergency. The safety tape is light green when lights are on and emits a green/yellow glow when lights are off. It glows brightest for the first 60 minutes then fades to remain lightly visible for several hours in total darkness. Glow Floor-Mark has a thin, durable profile designed specifically for industrial environments where forklifts and floor-scrubbers may be in use. It is perfect for use near exits, passageways and staircases and complies with OSHA Standard 1910.22(b)(2) which outlines required marking for aisles and passageways.
Frankie Forklift and Friends would like to introduce two new items just in time for the holidays – a 26-page coloring book and a soft, lovable Frankie Forklift toy. The purpose of these items is to introduce children to the material handling industry using relatable characters while teaching simple life lessons and providing an overall safety message. In addition, the items could be used as a way to inspire children to one day explore the opportunity of a career in the material handling/forklift industry.
Dual-Ear Fit Testing System
The 3M E-A-Rfit Dual-Ear Validation System is based on field microphone-in-real ear technology. The system consists of a specially designed loudspeaker equipped with a digital signal processor that allows for a consistent presentation of the test signal and real-time communication between the microphones, speaker and software. Dual-element microphones make it possible to measure the sound level at two different locations and for both ears simultaneously.
Fall Protection Harness
The Freetech figure-8 style fall protection harness integrates a patent-pending SwitchPoint System for improving the comfort and mobility of a suspended worker in a post-fall scenario. The system provides a unique release mechanism that allows the user to safely and easily transfer their body weight from the dorsal connector to the front waist of the harness to reorient their position while hanging. The repositioning aids the wearer by allowing increased freedom of movement.
Heavy-Duty Bolt Bag
Struck-by incidents are one of the leading causes of injury in construction. The new bolt bag from Elk River features heavy-duty webbing to prevent tools and sharp objects from penetrating the bottom, preventing a tool drop. The bag is sewn and riveted for increased durability and has tool rings on the side for tool lanyards. It also has a draw-string top to prevent spillage as well as a 25-pound capacity.

The bench grinder stand is constructed of steel and is painted safety yellow. It has a base size of 12 in. x 12 in. and a stand height of 33-1/2 in. plus grinder height. The stand can be used with most 6 in. to 10 in. bench grinders.
