DEZEGA has discovered South America! South America becomes the fifth continent – to which this international holding is bringing new technologies. It opens up new horizons for both sides. For DEZEGA, a new frontier, and for Peru - the first step forward in using advanced self-contained respiratory protective equipment in order to improve the safety of the underground workers.
DEZEGA is a well-renowned international manufacturer of personal respiratory protective equipment (RPE). The Peruvian company Buenaventura engages in mining and processing, and the development and exploration of gold, silver, coal, lead, zinc and other minerals. DEZEGA and its South American representative won the tender for improving safety. The Company will supply Buenaventura with self-contained self-rescuers under the largest contract concluded in Peruvian history.
South American countries use less effective filter respiratory protective equipment. Such filter respiratory protective equipment filters certain gases, but they are not able to protect underground workers in the environment, where oxygen is less than 17 percent. Employers in Peru have now chosen to invest in safety. By using DEZEGA self-contained self-rescuers, Peru is making significant progress in improving worker health and safety in mines. Indeed, in contrast to the filtering respiratory protection equipment, the self-contained self-rescues completely isolate users from dangerous irrespirable environments. DEZEGA together with its representative in South America JS Industrial were able to prove the advantages of self-contained self-rescuers and won the tender. By the way, the holding had to compete in the tender with manufacturers from around the world: America, Germany, Poland and China, which in addition to the self-contained, actively promoted the filter respiratory protective equipment. Also DEZEGA products use technically superior components while maintaining the best quality-to-price ratio.
DEZEGA will also supply training self-rescuers. Peruvian miners will be able to practice donning and evacuation procedures in conditions close to reality. Such training helps miners react appropriately and immediately during emergencies, thus ensuring the safety of workers.
“This is a serious step for entering the South American market and the beginning of cooperation with leading mining companies in the region ", - said Anton Sakovich, Chairman of the board of directors, DEZEGA.
DEZEGA products meet international and national standards in the EU, South Africa, India, Australia and Russia. By entering the South America market, DEZEGA proves its position as the world market leader in the production of self-contained respiratory protective equipment.
