Any reputable builders merchants will be able to tell you about the importance of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Construction is a dangerous industry and it is vital for everyone working on your site to be equipped with appropriate, well-maintained protective gear. This includes everything from gloves and hard hats to respiratory protection and safety harnesses. When providing building supplies and drainage materials in Woking, we can also deliver any PPE you require in one convenient slot.
As experienced merchants and aggregate suppliers, we advise on suitable PPE along with proper handling of different materials. Our grab hire services offer safe and reliable solutions for a range of requirements.
Why you need to think about PPE
No matter what building project you are undertaking, whether you are a domestic or trade customer, it is vital to make sure everyone carrying out work is properly protected. It is a legal requirement for employers in Woking to provide suitable PPE to employees who may be exposed to health and safety risks. However, it is just as important for individuals who are not employees to ensure they are protected.
Proper PPE minimise risks to your health and safety and reduces the chance of accidents.

PPE comes in many different forms. The equipment you need depends on the job you are undertaking. As an experienced builders merchants and aggregate suppliers, we are more than happy to advise on the best solutions for your job and provide high-quality PPE for collection or delivery.

As well as having the suitable PPE in place, it is essential to make sure workers are trained in the proper use of tools and equipment. This helps to further minimise risks as well as ensuring the quality of workmanship.
Making use of our grab hire services is another way to reduce risks because our trained drivers operate machinery and there is no need for manual labour. This ensures building supplies are unloaded safely and efficiently.
When choosing personal protective equipment in Woking, there are a few factors to consider that we can advise on as a professional builders merchants.
Products should be CE marked. This shows that they comply with the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 2002.
Equipment should be chosen specifically for individual users. This ensures PPE is the right size, fit and weight.
If multiple PPE items need to be worn at the same time, it is important to make sure that they will work effectively together.
Workers should know why they need certain PPE, when they should use it and any limitations it may have.
It is also important to consider the specific building and drainage materials being used because different materials have varying handling requirements.
