Safety, Safety, Safety - New PPE range at Neweys
As one of the UK’s leading electrical wholesalers we take safety very seriously as do many of our customers. In response to growing safety concerns we have launched an advanced new range of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), offering installers a comprehensive selection of safety gear, helping them to stay safe while they work.
Statistics published by the Health and Safety Executive show that during 2010/2011 there were 50 deaths on construction sites throughout the UK.?These figures highlight that despite improved awareness in health and safety matters, contractors are still at risk and need to take whatever precautions possible.
By choosing the right Personal Protective Equipment, it is possible to protect contractors from commonly faced problems on site such as poor weather and hazardous working conditions, like falling debris and dust. Further to this, the new range of workwear also enables employees to maintain a sleek and professional appearance on the job.
Luke Biddle, marketing manager at Newey & Eyre comments: ‘With electrical work becoming increasingly advanced and technology more complex, the need for equipment that will keep contractors safe has never been greater. With this in mind, we have developed the Newlec range of Personal Protective Equipment.’
‘The extensive new collection covers every conceivable piece of PPE the contractor could need on site and offers quality, fit-for-purpose, yet affordable products that Newlec is known for. Our new catalogue allows easy selection of the correct size and the range is available from our branches or for next day delivery.’
