High-quality Personal Protective Equipment for
Military Maintenance and Repair
Effective equipment is a key factor in improving safety and meeting Voluntary Protection Program goals.
According to the National Safety Council, preventable injuries and illnesses cost the Department of Defense and estimated $10-$21 billion annually, which includes civilian "lost day" rates, or days in which an employee missed work due to an injury. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is important in improving safety and reducing missed work due to injury, but it is only effective when used correctly and worn consistently.
Convincing workers to wear protective equipment is difficult, particularly when it's ill-fitting or uncomfortable. 3M offers quality personal protective equipment designed for comfort – helping workers to breathe easier, move more freely, tolerate heat better, and get the job done with less threat of injury. Our reliable, easy-to-use protective equipment includes:

New 3M™ SecureFit™ Protective Eyewear
This entry-level product is designed with 3M proprietary pressure diffusion temple technology, which diffuses the pressure around the ear and enables self-adjusting temples, to provide a secure, snug fit. This makes the eyewear more comfortable and easier to wear.
3M researchers developed the pressure diffusion temple technology after studying face shapes and sizes throughout the world. Through advancements in digital modeling, the study identified approximately 600 different touch points on the human face—knowledge that guided the design and fit of this protective eyewear line.
Providing Real Customer Benefits
The eyewear has no moving parts and nothing to adjust. Because the product self-adjusts to a wide range of head shapes and sizes, customers do not need to stock multiple frame sizes.
SecureFit protective eyewear weighs less than one ounce and is available in three shades: clear, amber and gray. The eyewear comes with either anti-fog or anti-scratch lens coatings, making it adaptable for many work environments.
