As winter approaches, it’s important local businesses make employee health and safety their top priority. Penguin Office Supplies stock a range of products to help businesses manage seasonal health and safety risks, including quality personal protective equipment (PPE), workwear and waterproof clothing to make sure staff remain visible, warm and dry through the colder months.
Autumn is well and truly upon us, the days are becoming shorter, the nights colder. With this comes an increased risk of winter-related workplace accidents and injuries such as slips, trips and falls. By law, employers must ensure suitable PPE is provided to employees who may be exposed to a risk to their health or safety while at work. Penguin supply a range of PPE, safety boots, high visibility clothing and waterproof workwear to safeguard employees against winter-related accidents in the workplace. These items ensure employees, especially those that work outdoors, are adequately protected against the elements and importantly, are visible in poor daylight conditions.
In addition to the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992, employers have a general duty under the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees at work. Penguin are suppliers of safety signage, snow shovels, grit, torches and even office heaters. The company stock everything that facility managers and business owners might need to stay compliant with these regulations over the winter months all conveniently under one roof.
Chris Hopkinson, Director of Penguin Office Supplies Ltd explains “As well as general PPE such as safety glasses, ear protection and disposable gloves we can provide items that ensure your employees remain comfortable, warm and safe when performing tasks outdoors during winter. Items such as high visibility vests, coveralls, fleeces, hats and bodywarmers, all which can be personalised with company logos, names and job titles if desired. And we don’t just stop there! We also provide a variety of safety signs for wet flooring, super absorbent door mats, traffic cones and torches. There’s no limit to what we can supply!” He adds, “Businesses needn’t fear the winter months if they are well stocked and prepared.”
