Advances in technology and a greater understanding of the needs of employees mean this winter workers have a bigger and better choice of workwear to choose from than ever before according to workplace equipment provider Slingsby.
The company, which supplies more than 35,000 products through its catalogue and website, offers a wide range of personal protective equipment and workwear and this year has seen some major developments compared to recent years.
Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby, explains: "Workwear is evolving faster than ever before with new materials, styles and technology being developed all the time.Many workers are also becoming more brand conscious and want workwear that looks good as well as being practical and comfortable.
"As a result we have significantly increased our product range and now have more choice than ever from all the leading manufacturers, including Dickies and Snickers, and lots of these products are available with free next day delivery.
"In addition we’re continually expanding our choice of high visibility and safety products which include all types of innovative new features such as hard hats that use the same high intensity reflective materials that are used on motorway signs.Plus we’re now able to add corporate branding to many of these products which is proving to be extremely popular."
Under the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at Work Regulations 1992, employers must provide appropriate clothing and equipment whenever there are risks to health and safety that cannot be adequately controlled in other ways.
