Why Are You Interested In Safety Work Wear?

Rather than take a view point that PPE and safety wear is a necessary evil we aim to encourage a change of attitude from the wearer in that it is there to provide a potential guard from harm. We want you to be in one piece at the end of your working day. Lately we have seen a shift to where PPE is getting accepted especially with the younger generations.

Over the years we have come across a variety of false stories when it comes to PPE and would like to address what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to this topic.

How Are We Different To Other Sites?

We aren't out to rehash the same content over and over. We are aiming to use our experience in helping workers reach their own decisions based on reasoned information and unbiased reviews.

We hope to write in layman's terms and avoid unnecessary jargon. We do use affiliate marketing, but the reviews and information  come from colleagues and past experience on this site to enable us to fund hosting and other associated costs with running the site. 

Ultimately we are looking to provide the most up to date safety work wear advice to trade workers.
