Online retailer of essential safety products, personal protective equipment and workwear, Safetyshop.com, is offering businesses advice on how to comply with industry standards and regulations.
As one of the largest retailers of its kind, Safetyshop understands that it has a duty to its customers to provide information on what PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is necessary for businesses to have in order to meet UK and European health and safety laws.
Safetyshop explains that all employers have to meet basic rules regarding the provision and use of PPE at work and emphasises that many working environments must comply with Regulation 4 of the PPE at Work Regulation 1992, which outlines the mandatory use of protection for the face and eyes when at risk in a hazardous area.
Eye injuries can occur as a result of flying debris, dust and hazardous chemicals and in turn these can not only cause pain but also loss of earnings, loss of time and even loss of eyesight. Safetyshop offers an extensive range of face shields, overspecs, safety goggles and eye wash products to help minimise the risk of injury to the face and eyes.
All eye and face protection products available to buy online at Safetyshop.com comply with The industrial Eye Protection Standard EN166. Safetyshop emphasise that it is important to carefully consider the different hazards in the workplace in order to allow for the correct type of PPE to be chosen. This is true for all types of PPE and workwear.
