The secrets of success in procuring PPE and workwear

Anyone responsible for procuring PPE and workwear for an organisation will understand the complexities of keeping a workforce protected against health and safety risks. Here are some insider tips to guarantee PPE and protective clothing procurement success:

  1. Work with a single supplier
    Having a single workwear and PPE supplier that can deliver everything you need to keep your workforce protected is a great way to simplify your PPE and protective clothing procurement. At Contego Safety Solutions, we’ve got an ever-expanding product range to ensure we can supply everything you need, whether you’re in the construction industry, traffic management or logistics. But we’re more than just a warehouse stocking all the kit you need, we’ve also got a research and development team that is continually innovating and bringing new products to market. And everything we offer is available with a suite of services to make your life easier.
  2. Consult the experts
    Health and safety standards are non-negotiable. Avoid procuring fake PPE or purchasing sub-standard gear by using properly certified suppliers. At Contego Safety Solutions, we know precisely what complex safety standards mean and can help ensure you’re compliant. You can trust us to know when things change, like when new rules on exposure to welding fumes come in or when PPE regulations change.
  3. Find a reliable and trusted partner
    Choosing a dedicated specialist counts for a lot. Using a PPE supply partner that understands the risks to your workforce means you can place your trust in them. At Contego, we know the individual hazards and issues for each industry, whether that’s substance hazards in contract cleaning, falls and trips in logistics, hearing damage in grounds maintenance, or dangers in the utility sector. And whatever the weather, you can trust us to protect your teams, come rain or shine.
  4. Look for value-added services
    Our services go beyond just providing the clothing and kit you need. We help make your teams look professional and proud to represent your brand, with embroidered logos and heat-sealed branding on smart uniforms. The entire process can be managed using our Online Management Portal, which makes reordering and tracking orders easy. Plus, the system allows parameters to be set around who can reorder workwear, and restrictions and order levels can be set too. The simplicity doesn’t stop there – our WEARPACK® service makes the internal distribution of gear as easy as possible because everything is name labelled before it leaves us.

Contego Safety Solutions stocks a wide range of corporate workwear, protective clothing and PPE, including our WEARMASTER® range. We also provide a bespoke uniform design and manufacture service to ensure you get precisely what you are looking for in a company uniform. The friendly and expert team at Contego Safety Solutions is always on hand to give advice and guidance on the right PPE and protective clothing for your needs.
