It’s critical to ensure you can trust your supply chain for products like these masks which could have a direct impact on your staff health and safety.
Following guidelines issued earlier this week by the Government, there are some simple actions you need to take to make your workplace COVID SECURE. Give your staff safety and security when returning to work.

CleanAIR® is a complete system of personal respiratory protection based on the principle of overpressure of the filtered air in the breathing zone. The system consists of a powered air respirator which is installed on the wearer’s belt and filtrates the air taken from the surrounding environment through the efficient particle, gas or combined filters. The purified air is delivered through the breathing tube into a protective mask or hood.

Coronavirus signs

With news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continuing to make headlines around the world, the need to tackle the spread of this deadly virus is greater than ever.

Hand gel and sanitiser

Covid-19 – Coronavirus is now having a direct impact on our supplies of hand gels, hand sanitiser and antiseptic hand wipes. We are doing our upmost to source these products from our suppliers, who are struggling to keep up with the demand at this present time.

Coronavirus Market Update

The Coronavirus in China is having a direct impact on our UK supply. There is and will be an ongoing shortage of all types of disposable masks and type 5/6 disposable coveralls. Even when the factories are back up and running (see below), all production of these products are being held and used by the Chinse government, as they do not have enough masks to meet their current demand.

You need supportive, durable safety footwear that’s fit for purpose. Protective Footwear Prevents Injuries Your foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. It makes sense to protect them. Common injuries are easily avoidable with the correct footwear. We recommend a stable and hard-working safety boot that prevents complaints, claims and fines by cushioning and protecting the sole, ankle and toes. Comfortable footwear improves staff wellbeing and productivity, from reducing common sprains to preventing leg, pelvis and upper body trauma.

In Europe, the standard EN 388:2003 is used to regulate protection classes of cut restistant safety gloves. To achieve a high level of cut protection, several technical materials – known as high performance fibres – are used. This process of constantly further developing materials requires testing procedures and classifications of these products to be adapted – this was realised in new revised standard EN 388:2016.

The Arc Flash Analysis also includes useful recommendations that needs to be complied with, taking the various standards that exist in each country into account.
