Why You Need Quality Safety Equipment On Site

When it comes to workplace compliance, having the right safety equipment can mean the difference between life and death. These are designed to protect workers from hazards, ensuring their health and wellness while on the job. However, not all items like these are created equal.

Here are some reasons why you need to have these items ready to use on site at all times.

Protects Workers

The primary purpose of these items is to protect workers from harm. Reliable items can prevent injuries or even save lives. For example, hard hats can protect workers from head injuries caused by falling objects, goggles can protect eyes from flying debris or hazardous materials, and body harnesses can prevent falls from heights.

Meets Regulations

Many regulations regarding safe working for staff require the use of specific items and tools in certain situations. This is to ensure that workers are protected from hazards that can cause injury or illness. By using reliable tools for the job that meet these regulations, businesses can ensure compliance with safety standards and avoid fines or legal action.

Improves Productivity

When workers feel safe and protected, they are more likely to be productive. Reliable safety equipment can give workers the confidence they need to perform their job without fear of injury. This can lead to better morale, higher job satisfaction, and ultimately increased productivity.

Reduces Costs

Investing in high-quality tools and resources can save businesses money in the long run. By preventing injuries and accidents, businesses can avoid the costs associated with lost time, medical expenses, and workers’ compensation claims. In addition, reliable items are often more durable and long-lasting, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

Enhances Reputation

Businesses that prioritise the well-being of staff are often viewed more favourably by customers, investors, and the community. By investing in reliable equipment, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to the safety and well-being of their workers, which can enhance their reputation and increase their credibility.

Safety equipment is essential for ensuring the well-being of workers on site. It protects workers from harm, ensures compliance with regulations, improves productivity, reduces costs, and enhances a business’s reputation. Investing in dependable equipment is a smart decision that can have significant benefits for both workers and businesses. Contact us today to learn more about our offering.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
