Online PR News – 09-November-2010 – – Safetyshop, one of the UKâ€™s largest online retailers of safety equipment and safety signs, has stocked up for the winter to ensure that their customers are kept safe from the increased risk of slips, trips and falls at work during the bad weather.
With slips, trips and falls accounting for around 38 per cent of major workplace injuries each year (the equivalent of a slip or trip accident occurring every three minutes) Safetyshopâ€™s aim is to alert customers to the increased danger of these types of accidents during periods of bad weather and to advise businesses to act now and aim to prevent slips, trips and falls rather than suffering the consequences.
Ordering safety equipment now and being prepared for the wet and icy conditions could save companies and employers hundreds of millions of pounds in injury claims and staff absence.
Safetyshopâ€™s warning safety signs, non-slip entrance mats, de-icing salt packs, grit bins and salt spreaders and much more are all available to order online at www.safetyshop.com and will be delivered straight to your door.
As well as offering practical solutions to the problems of slippery surfaces and much more, Safetyshopâ€™s products can help you to comply with the Health and Safety at work Act 1974 and The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. Under these regulations an employer has a duty to assess risks (including slip and trip risks) and ensure the workplace is a safe environment for employees and anyone visiting the premises.
Safetyshop became a trading division of Stockport-based Brady Corporation Ltd following an acquisition in 2005. The company was established in 1970 and through various acquisitions of its own, has gone on to become the leading safety products manufacturer in the UK, producing a range of 18,000 products at its 34,000 square foot UK facility in Cheshire.
