When it comes to finding a good PPE supplier, keep this in mind

by , 08 July 2014
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is a vital part of your employees' safety. And that means a good PPE supplier is a vital part in getting good protective clothing.

If you get your safety gear from a poor quality supplier, it'll be poorly made. And you really can't afford to cut costs when it comes to your employees' safety!

Here's what to do to ensure you're PPE supplier is giving you the good stuff so your employees don't get the raw end of the deal...

If you choose a poor PPE supplier, bad quality is what you'll get 

Whenever you buy something, whether it's a couch, a car or your employees' safety equipment, if you get it from somewhere that's known for being cheap, you can expect what you get from them to be bad quality.
That's not a problem when you want to buy a couch for your office that doesn't need to withstand hard use, but if you do this with your employees' PPE, you're putting their lives in danger!
When you think of it that way, how can you justify using a low quality PPE supplier?
Rather go with someone you know provides high quality PPE that can withstand the hard use it'll get on site.
Here's what you should keep in mind when you choose this supplier...
*********** Hot off the press  ************
Do you have more than 20 employees?
Don't ignore this health and safety obligation or else!
The DoL will slap you with a R50 000 fine or 1 year in jail if you don't have a health and safety representative. 

Three points you should consider when you choose your PPE supplier

When you choose your PPE supplier, bear these things in mind:
1. Does the supplier have a reputation for selling poor quality products?
2. Are their prices extremely low? If they are, it's probably because the PPE they sell is poor quality. 
3. Does the company have bad reviews from other customers? You can find reviews like these online.
If you answer 'yes' to any of these questions about the supplier, rather keep looking.
