Published on 01/18/2018, 2:40 PM

Accidents at work are twice as frequent as elsewhere and the accident severity rate is five times higher than in agriculture: Being a Forest worker is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous occupations.

"The injury caused by a chainsaw is serious and slow to heal, says Anthony Le Bigot, leader of the manufacturer of PPE Solidur. Since 2016, the state requires users to be equipped with a protection adapted to the power of machines whose speed of rotation continues to increase to reach today sometimes 24 m/s, or even 30m/s *."


Substantial gain in security

But today the only pants available on the market allowed to protect up to 20m/s (Class1) or 24m/s (class2). There was no protection for more than 60% of the available chainsaws. After a year and a half of research and development, Solidur has innovated by offering the first trousers in the world adapted to a speed of rotation of 28m/s, which corresponds to a class 3 certification, officially obtained in April 2017.

"A substantial gain in safety that does not entail a loss of comfort or flexibility for the user has already attracted many administrations in France", said Anthony Le Bigot.
