Jarrod Berends

Position :
Industrial Advisor for Research & Testing and Industrial Exposures Health Advocate

Workers such as truck and car mechanics are exposed to many hazards. I can finally utilize PPE for my long term health benefit with the use of DRAFT technology. I need glasses for one and with DRAFT respirators I wear glasses for close up working situations and have no issue with fogging. However, the discomfort of respirators was always a barrier for me to protect myself. Even if I didn’t need to use my glasses for close up situation the heat and humidity was too uncomfortable to choose to protect myself from hazards. Now that I have the DRAFT prototype I prefer wearing my PPE while working with asbestos, diesel fumes and many more hazards I face everyday.
