Counterfeit Petzl products are not a new phenomenon.
Over the years, Petzl has discovered counterfeits or copies of several of its products:
- counterfeit headlamps with the Petzl products logo, including headlamps from the TIKKA and MYO lines

Your head is the most important part of your body. You think, feel, talk, smell, and hear with your head. Therefore, it makes sense that you should protect your head from any injury.

Another reason it is important to have proper fall protection equipment and safety equipment is the heat. Heat is a serious hazard in construction. Your body builds up heat when you work and sweats to get rid of extra heat. But sometimes your body may not cool off fast enough. This can happen, say, if you are up on a roof pouring hot asphalt or you are lifting heavy loads. Too much heat can make you tired, hurt your job performance, and increase your chance of injury. You can get skin rash. You can also get: Continue reading
