Safety Standards

With occupational safety issues coming to the forefront in industry around the world, more and more countries are adopting safety regulations to prevent workplace injuries and health problems

Compressed air has the potential to cause serious injury and for this reason, its handling is safeguarded by industry standards and usage guidelines.
