Electric and Hybrid vehicles (EHVs) can present a lethal danger to unprotected and untrained service and repair technicians, with this in mind Prosol now offer complete safety solutions to warn and protect your employees.
With voltages up to 600v DC you cannot afford to take risks and so we have compiled sensible packages for personal protection and vehicle exclusion zones.
We have researched this field thoroughly and taken advice from leading industry professionals to ensure you get what you need.
Our Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Personal Protection products include Class 0 Insulating Gloves and Dielectric Rubber Floor Mats, certified for safe working up to 1,000v. An alternative (or addition) to Insulating Rubber Floor Mats are Dielectric Over-Boots, they’re not pretty but they do the job and are essential if you’re involved with vehicle recovery or part of the Rescue Services. A Full Face Arc Protection Visor should be worn at all times when working on electric and hybrid vehicles and Prosol’s dielectric visor is comfortable to wear and does its job.
The ProStore EHV First Aid & PPE Shadow Panel Storage Board is perfect for keeping all the products you need conveniently at hand. Combine this with the ProStore Wall Mounted Storage Cabinet and you’ve got a secure and controlled access solution to keep all the products safe. To complete the safety equipment requirement for servicing and repair of electric and hybrid vehicles we offer a comprehensive range VDE certified Insulated Hand Tools, the only type of tooling that should be used when working on EHVs.
Most importantly of all – Your staff need to be trained BY LAW! and we have partnered with a leading provider of IMI accredited training so you can comply with the law. If you or your employees intend working on Electric, Hybrid or PEHV (Plug In Electric Hybrid) vehicles, (this even includes Air Con systems on EHVs) then a minimum IMI Accredited Level 3 qualification is required.
