Safetyshop, the UK’s leading safety equipment manufacturer, has launched an industry news feed on the homepage of its website.
Designed to be a useful resource for regular customers and new visitors alike, the latest news section contains stories which relate to all aspects of health and safety, from new legislation and prosecutions brought by the Health and Safety Executive, to road safety initiatives and changes affecting first aid kits in the workplace. The feed is updated on a daily basis to ensure breaking news makes it onto the site as quickly as possible.
The idea to publish breaking news came from Safetyshop’s customers, according to Maria Kirby, Online Content Specialist at Safetyshop.
She said: “We carried out a survey in an attempt to find out what is most important to our customers. Perhaps unsurprisingly we found that the majority of them consider health and safety legislation to be critical to the successful running of their businesses.
“By publishing news stories on the homepage of our website on a daily basis we are able to inform visitors about the very latest developments relating to health and safety and ensure that our customers have all the knowledge they require to be able to run their own companies effectively, efficiently and safely.”
Safetyshop has been providing its customers with a huge range of safety equipment including workwear, safety signs and traffic control equipment. Now, as well as being seen as a leading supplier of quality safety items, the company wants to be recognised as a trusted source for breaking health and safety news.
Maria added: “Safetyshop’s ultimate goal is to help customers manage their health and safety requirements and ensure that their workplace is safe for everyone. Hopefully our news service will be of use to companies that take health and safety seriously, and help keep everyone up-to-date on developments across the industry.”
