PPE solutions for tradespeople

If you are a skilled tradesperson, you'll know what quality really means. It doesn't mean using the cheapest product - as you'll likely need to use more of it - nor does it mean using the most expensive product - as a high price doesn't always deliver excellence. It is advisable not to make your purchasing decisions based purely on price, as this neglects to take into account the cost in use.

  • What is the real cost of a product if you only use it once and then throw it away?
  • And what is the real cost if you use it every day for 10 years?

When buying your PPE, it is really important to ask yourself these questions to ensure you are getting the best value from your outlay - something that is particularly important if you are running your own business or working with restricted budgets. Trust uvex products to protect both your safety and your bottom line.

With protecting people at its core, uvex PPE incorporates numerous technologies to enhance safety, functionality and wearer comfort. By doing so, our products not only keep workplace hazards to a minimum, we can help prevent long-term health risks, enhance employee wellbeing which in turn has a positive effect on performance and productivity.
