Hazchem Safety, a leading provider of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), has announced the launch of its groundbreaking ORKA ECO range coverall.
This industry-first innovation offers a carbon footprint saving of 3.7kg CO2e per coverall, raising safety standards but also demonstrating the firm’s unwavering commitment to environmental responsibility. The ORKA ECO range represents a significant step forward in flame retardant and antistatic offshore coveralls and results in a reduction of over 55 liters of water consumption per unit.
The sustainable coverall is a result of extensive research and development and is crafted from a unique blend of fire-resistant (FR) treated fabric, cotton, eco fibers, and recycled PET, with 50 percent of the fabric being sustainable green fibers.
Shauni Addison, Business Development Manager, Hazchem Safety, said “We are incredibly proud to introduce our ORKA ECO range to the market – we believe this is an industry first and with this groundbreaking product, we are not only setting new standards for safety but also leading the way in environmental responsibility. Our aim is to provide our clients and their workers with the best protection possible while minimizing the industry’s carbon footprint in line with our own company net zero plans.”
With targets of £150k in revenue by the end of the year, Hazchem anticipates significant demand, particularly in the North Sea market. In conjunction with the ORKA ECO range, the firm continues to provide the female worker with the ORKA Ladies Fit offshore coverall which was launched in October 2022. The ORKA range is supplied directly to customers as well as over the trade counter in Dyce and via Hazchem’s new electric van delivery service throughout the northeast of Scotland.
