Safety Workwear and Equipment

Safety at Work: Personal Protective Equipment.

Safety equipment reduces the risk of danger, physical harm, and injury in the workplace, so workwear usage is often a formal Health and Safety regulatory requirement. Our range of high-quality safety clothing and personal protective equipment (PPE) promotes compliance with H&S regulations by protecting the wearer against minor inconvenience, injury, sickness, and serious accidents.

Safety clothing, special garments, helmets, goggles, and other workwear is designed to protect from specific risks, such as:

  • Physical hazards
  • High electrical voltages
  • High temperatures or heat exposure
  • Chemical products and biohazards
  • Airborne particles

Protective equipment might be a stipulation of job-related occupational safety regulations or required for sporting and other recreational activities. In addition to protective clothing, the term protective gear is sometimes used to include pads, guards, shields, and masks. Similarly, barriers and warning signs that draw the attention of employees and visitors to hazards also form part of the safety equipment category. All these PPE and workwear products share a common aim, which is to reduce exposure to risks.

The importance of safety workwear and PPE.

Goods storage and physical handling environments, such as warehouses, tend to be hotspots for risks and hazards. Our range of health & safety supplies helps companies to follow recommended procedures. Where there is any risk of being injured due to falling objects, safety helmets are advisable, which are featured in our helmets and head protection workwear selection. Similarly, safety shoes and boots with reinforced toecaps prevent foot injuries, especially when handling heavy goods. Finally, for eye protection, goggles or glasses are recommended, whereas, in noisy environments, ear defenders and earplugs reduce or prevent hearing loss.
