Justrite’s New QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers Help Combat Noise Pollution on Worksites

CHICAGO, IL — Justrite, a global leader in industrial safety products, announces the launch of QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers, temporary sound barriers that absorb and reflect sounds to help reduce perceived noise levels on job sites.

Mark McElhinny, the President and CEO of the Justrite Safety Group, said QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers help combat noise distraction for work crews and protects the public from noise pollution near job sites.

“Excessive noise not only damages hearing, but it also creates a distracting work environment that may lead to other safety issues,” said McElhinny. “Our QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers are designed to absorb and reflect noise, thus reducing the overall noise level on any worksite."

The QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers feature a unique acoustic core that absorbs noise and a vinyl outer layer that reflects noise.

The noise barrier features a foldable design for easy transportation and storage. Each basic panel is fitted with brass eyelets with grommets, while premium panels include hook and loop fasteners and magnets for a seamless, secure link between panels. The barriers are versatile; use them for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Noise barriers are a proven, effective method of combating noise and the QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers can reduce common construction noises by up to half. They will keep work crews on task while keeping noise from disturbing the surrounding areas.

The QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers are essential today since many municipalities require a noise mitigation plan on worksite locations.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), noise pollution can have adverse effects on the lives of millions of people. Studies conducted by the EPA show that there are direct links between noise and health. Some problems related to noise pollution include stress-related illnesses, high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption, and lost productivity.

Businesses can take many steps to protect themselves from the harmful effects of noise pollution such as giving workers hearing protection while working. However, a noise barrier is a practical and effective method to reduce noise on a larger scale.

“Our noise barriers create a sound-minimizing enclosure between a job site and a pedestrian walkway,” says McElhinny, “The QuietSite Noise Reduction Barriers make it easy to comply with local ordinances to control noise to avoid costly fines or lost time due to project shut-downs.”

Justrite’s New Portable Hand Washing Station Minimizes Spread of COVID-19 and Germs in the Workplace

CHICAGO, IL – July 22, 2020 — Justrite, a global leader in industrial safety products, announces the launch of the Portable Hand Washing Station, a mobile, self-contained hand cleansing system that allows employees to effectively wash hands in any location.

Mark McElhinny, the President and CEO of the Justrite Safety Group, says the Portable Hand Washing Station is a practical tool against the spread of germs and viruses in the workplace.

"As COVID-19 infections numbers continue to rise in various parts of the country, businesses need an easy but effective method to ensure the safety of their workforce,” said McElhinny. “Our Portable Hand Washing Station is designed to provide an all in one hand cleansing solution for worksites without the need for plumbing."

The Portable Hand Washing Station features a 30-gallon tank that supports approximately 150 hand washes.

The self-contained hand washing station provides a reliable way for personnel to ensure they can practice safe, personal hygiene whatever the location. The station features hands-free, foot activation for ease of use and to help minimize cross-contamination.

It also features fillable soap and paper towel dispensers, making it an all-in-one hand sanitization station that can be placed anywhere, indoors or out. Without having to leave the work floor, an employee can wash their hands often between tasks in full confidence of their safety.

The Portable Hand Washing Station is essential today since handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Germs spread easily from people or surfaces. This is especially important to take into consideration if employees come into contact with the surfaces that may be frequently touched by other people. Hand washing is the most effective way to minimize the spreading of germs, especially after blowing the nose, coughing, or sneezing. The CDC advises frequent hand washing can keep you healthy and helps prevent the spread of respiratory and diarrheal infections from one person to the next.

Frequent handwashing is still the most effective method to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

"As businesses continue open and to get back to full capacity in the midst of the pandemic, it’s essential to protect employees and their families from the invisible threats,” says McElhinny, “The Portable Hand Washing Station makes it easy for any business to give their employees peace of mind. With convenient access to hand washing, employees can maintain a high level of personal hygiene all day and help limit the spread of germs and viruses."
