Leading provider of hand protection solutions kicks off
nationwide educational road show for building and construction workers
London - Brussels, 17 November 2008 - Today, Ansell Healthcare, global leader in barrier protection solutions , is launching its Putting safety in your hands campaign for the UK. The Ansell bespoke interactive vehicle - a converted fire truck - will tour large construction sites in the UK, starting this week in the London area. Prominent on the programme are the building sites in and around the new Olympic locations and Heathrow airport. The visited sites include the Skanska site (East London), the Excel site, the McAlpine site (Olympic stadium) and the Westfield site (East London).
Construction and building workers will be able to personally experience the quality and added value of the dedicated range of building and construction gloves through live demonstrations and hands-on investigation. Experiences, which include a chin up bar and buzz wire game, will enable workers to test the range of gloves for, strength, comfort, tactility, vibration resistance and protection against chemicals, cuts and abrasion.
With this initiative, Ansell Healthcare wants to encourage and engage construction workers to select the correct type of gloves offering ultimate protection to their hands.
