How to cut down on those frustrating PPE costs - without putting employee safety in jeopardy

by , 15 August 2014
There's nothing more frustrating than constantly forking out money to keep your employees safe. That's especially true when you employees keep losing or breaking the personal protective equipment (PPE) you give them.

This constant need to replace your employees PPE can become an overwhelming expense.

But there's a way to deal with this budget drain.

It all comes down to three easy management steps you can implement into your company without any hassle. And best of all, you can do it without putting your employees in danger...


Implement these three management steps to stop that PPE budget drain

If you want to cut down those frustrating PPE costs, you must manage your PPE effectively.  
You can do that with these three steps:
PPE management step #1: Invest in good quality PPE because it lasts much longer
Cheap PPE may seem like a great way to save, but it's actually a big mistake. Cheap protective clothing breaks easily. This means it won't protect your employees in an accident and you'll have to replace it more often. 
And what was cheap now becomes an expensive process of replacing broken safety gear and dealing with accidents and injuries.

Are you responsible for compiling your SHE file?
Are you struggling to keep up-to-date with all the paperwork?
Do you waste your time formatting all the documents?
Are you stressed out about all your legal requirements?
Of course you are. You have enough on your plate already, and keeping up with paperwork isn't on the top of your to-do list. But unfortunately, it's part of your job because it's a legal requirement. And, you've answered 'YES' to at least half of the questions above.

PPE management step #2: Give your employees a place to store their PPE at work

It may cost you a bit more money to create a place for your employees to store their PPE but this will prevent them losing it.  
When you let employees take their PPE home all the time they're more likely to lose it. If you keep replacing lost PPE it can very quickly all add up. 
PPE management step #3: Train your employees to look after their PPE
If you train your employees to clean and take care of their PPE, it won't break as fast. This means you don't need to replace it three or four times a year. 
You see, it's really easy to cut down on your PPE costs without sacrificing your employees' safety to do so.
