Milwaukee Tools is committed to delivering solutions that not only meet users’ needs and overcome frustrations, but help users stay safe while working on the Jobsite. Milwaukee tools is more than just a power tool company, it’s a solutions provider and the launch of the new Milwaukee Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) ensures users remain safe and productive.

Milwaukee’s range of gloves, safety glasses, high visibility safety vests, tool lanyards, hearing protection, and accessories have been built to meet the demands of the toughest jobsite and to ensure a safer and more productive site. With little, to no innovation in PPE development over the years Milwaukee’s Personal Protective Equipment range aims to overcome user frustrations including:

  • Weak and brittle safety gloves that are not scratch and impact resistant.
  • Safety glove dexterity and flexibility issues that make handling small items like screws difficult.
  • Safety glasses fogging up, making all-day use uncomfortable.
  • Uncomfortable and ill-fitting PPE that needs to be worn the whole day.

Eye Protection

Did you know that using the correct eye protection could reduce Jobsite eye injuries by 90%? Often users remove glasses due to them being badly scratched or fogging up, making all day use uncomfortable. Milwaukee’s new range of safety glasses adheres to the strictest EN safety standards in eye protection and offers superior comfort, fit, and durability you would want your Personal Protective Equipment to give you.

Milwaukee safety glasses are made with a comfortable rubber on the frame and the flexible arms of the glasses ensure the glasses are comfortable and secure. A fully adjustable and removable nose bridge enables added comfort for all face shapes, ensuring minimal slipping when in use. The impact and scratch-resistant lenses also feature anti-fog properties to prevent steaming up when in use. All Milwaukee eye protection solutions are certified according to EN 166, EN 170 or EN 172 standards respectively depending on each class of safety glasses.

From entry-level to premium safety glasses with removable gaskets, all Milwaukee safety glasses are available in clear and tinted options and will ensure your eyes are protected.

Hand Protection

A study shows that 70% of workers who experienced hand injuries were not wearing the correct Personal Protective Equipment when it comes to safety gloves. Just imagine not having full use of your hands or fingers due to a heavy object falling on your hand or a severe cut accident – all because you weren’t wearing the correct gloves. Milwaukee’s range of quality safety gloves have been built to help prevent and limit the severity of hand injuries and adhere to the strictest EN 420 and 388 hand safety standards.
