In addition to protective work clothing Ridge Workwear Peterborough
supplies a range of personal protective equipment (PPE) to accompany
and complement our protective work clothing. Here you will find an
extensive range of industrial strength, high quality personal protective
equipment for use in many situations and areas.
The range includes hand, knee, eye, full face and head protection that
all conform to the current EU safety standards, all designed to keep you
safe in the workplace.
Furthermore, we ensure we keep up to date with all changes to the health
and safety regulations so that our customers can be confident that
their equipment will not let them down.
There are many things to consider when buying PPE or personal
protective equipment; firstly consider what regulations to take into
account. The regulations are called EN specification or European
Normalisation specifications, adhering to these regulations is law and
should always be taken seriously. We appreciate it can be difficult to
identify the exact requirements for your particular trade when it comes
to PPE so we have put together a Workwear by EN Spec guide to help you
better understand some of these requirements.
If you are a manager or head of an organisation it is very important
that you keep up to date with the latest regulations regarding personal
protective equipment. These requirements change yearly often with over
1000 new additions to consider, while most won't effect your trade it is
still essential to be in the know when it comes to health and safety,
visit our workwear by EN Spec page for more information.
Basic personal protective equipment includes safety footwear, safety
harnesses, ear & eye protection, head protection, respiratory and
face mask protection, protective gloves, disposable workwear &
finally safety signs to be used in the workplace.
Good use of safety signs can prevent many incidents of injury; we are
only human and accidents will inevitably occur. Prevention measures such
as erecting a sign near a slippery surface or warning signs can often
be very effective.
