Intense competition, an increasingly demanding working day and constant change are the hallmarks of the current business climate. These are significant challenges, and in order to meet them head-on, well-trained employees and a safe workplace are a fundamental requirement. Also necessary are the right kit and the right approach to personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as ongoing seminars, training sessions and vocational training on workplace health and safety.
|Time for change|
Our aim is to provide the right guidance and education for distributors and customers about the PPE that they are supplying and wearing. Wearing the wrong PPE affects the wearer's ability to perform their duties at work on a day to day basis, which can lead to compliance issues. This can also adversely affect a person's health and wellbeing both now and in the future.
|Getting the message right|
It’s our duty as a PPE manufacturer to ensure the correct information is relayed to specifiers and users. However, it shouldn’t stop there, at every touchpoint along the supply chain from distributor, to specifier, purchaser, stores person right through to the wearer, all have a responsibility to ensure information about the correct use of PPE is imparted. Information can be inconsistent which has serious consequences to individual safety and wellbeing as well as businesses through possible accidents and ligation claims.
By changing the behaviour, language, and commitment to influence those who make such decisions and beliefs in how PPE is seen, purchased, and finally worn via an educated platform requires a huge commitment from all parties. The uvex Academy enables everyone throughout the process to fully understand and appreciate that their position in making such high level decisions has the potential to impact people’s lives.
Our industry deserves a better and safer environment for everyone. To achieve this. we need to redirect industry behaviour to help provide a healthier, sustainable and more educated future that enables today’s workforce to return home to their families knowing that everyone within the supply chain has taken full responsibility to ensure this happens.
