Factsheet GEA safety jacket
GEA is supplier of process technical solutions for industries including the food industry. The project comprises the development of a safety jacket for field staff, which can be at least 90% reusable. (June 2017)
There was a requirement for an improved safety jacket that did not only offer protection against rain and wind, but also against low and high temperatures, chemical substances and for welding and electrical engineering activities. The current jackets were also not very comfortable to wear. This desired innovation was used as an opportunity to develop a circular economy jacket, together with colleagues from procurement and safety, and those wearing the jacket.
