The Head, Face, and Neck Protector is an enhanced piece of personal protective equipment that covers the head, face, neck, and shoulder area for use when operating a chainsaw or similar equipment.
Inventor Micheal Gero, a laborer from Truro, NS has created an enhanced piece of personal protective equipment that covers the head, face, neck, and shoulder area. Its for use when operating a chainshaw or similar equipment.
One common piece of personal protective equipment worn by chainsaw operators is that of a full metal mesh face shield. These face shields, worn in conjunction with normal eye protection, keep large chips of wood, shavings, and other debris from hitting the users face. The open mesh design allows for air flow, thus keeping workers cool in hot working conditions, and keeping protective eyewear from fogging up. However, these face shields do not protect the entire head, neck, or shoulder area. Workers are left covered in wood shavings and sawdust that often falls down inside of shirts where it becomes a scratchy irritant for the rest of the work day. Similar problems exist for those who work in sawmills, power company workers, and those simply cutting firewood in their backyard. In turn, Inventor Gero created the Head, Face, and Neck Protector.
This clever new invention protects a user from flying wood chips. It allows a workers clothes to stay cleaner. It prevents wood chips and sawdust from being tracked into clean areas, vehicles, and homes. A full hood goes over a users head and covers the areas down to mid-chest. The invention still allows protective eyewear and hearing protection to be worn underneath. The use of the Head, Face, and Neck Protector provides workers the ability to better protect themselves from sawdust accumulation in a manner which is quick, easy, and effective!
