Workwear and PPE are the most essential pieces of safety equipment. The health and safety of your employees should be the most prioritized area of your business as it can result in consequences if it is not adhered to. It also highlights your company values to your employees and will help them become more confident within the business.

Equipment such as high visibility clothing, hard hats, goggles and other pieces of equipment should be supplied by the business. Depending on the working environment, HR are required to have health and safety assessments carried out and note the correct and suitable equipment that needs to be supplied.

Without the correct equipment it leads to an increased risk in accidents in the workplace. With health and safety a huge priority and concern in every organization, some workplaces do not know how long their work wear and PPE will last.

In 2018/19 there were 147 fatal injuries in the workplace.
High visibility clothing is best seen in daylight (poor conditions – dust, mist, etc.)
Reflective material helps to be seen at night, fluorescent helps you to be seen in the day.

We spoke to our Workwear and PPE specialist, Rhiannon about taking care of your workwear, PPE and your employees.

Checking your workwear and PPE could keep your business in line with the health and safety regulations, plus keeping your staff as safe as possible. Some businesses are unaware of the maintenance of their PPE they must make to reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace. If your workwear is faded and you need brand new workwear and PPE, contact your account manager for any quotes you need.
