PPE Equipment with Branding Available from XCO Group
PPE equipment is used more often than one thinks. Every time a cyclist climbs on their bicycle, they put on a helmet. Riding a motorbike requires leather ‘armour’ to protect the body and hands. Police officers protect their vital organs with bulletproof vests and sporting legends pad their bodies to prevent injuries. Ensuring that your workers are adequately protected by supplying them with full body and facial protection plays a vital role in workplace safety and goes a long way towards minimising physical risk. XCO Group offers a wide range of PPE equipment that can be branded with your company’s logo, adding a touch of aesthetic appeal and making an official connection to your business.
The Evolution of Personal Protection Gear
Since wars have been waged, personal protective gear has been used in some form or another. Iron helmets, breastplates and shields decorated many a battlefield and even then were branded with a clan’s crest. In the world wars, respiratory masks were issued during bombing raids. Firemen started using protective helmets in the 1700s and, through innovative design developments, firefighting equipment has evolved into the personal protection equipment that it is today.
Benefits of Branding Your PPE Work Wear
- Having a uniform for safety reasons is compulsory for many businesses and is a policy that has to be enforced. Branding PPE equipment ensures a more official look and forms a connection to the company brand.
- Proudly displaying the company logo on clothing creates a culture of support and a sense of solidarity among workers.
- Consider branded wear as an additional level of security enabling you to immediately identify if there is a stranger amongst the work crew. Only your employees should be wearing your logo on their clothing.
- Should a staff member find themselves in a difficult situation outside of the workplace, branded clothing can act as an identification tool and will assist others in contacting the company in the event of an emergency.
- Outside of the workplace, your staff are the company’s natural brand ambassadors.
Branded PPE equipment provides more than just protection to your staff, it embodies a sense of belonging which in turn boosts morale. Consider PPE equipment to be a support system for the job that your employees do.
Brand Exposure Whilst Providing Personal Protection
Mining and construction are extremely hazardous with one working deep underground and the other often requiring work to be done from excessive heights. Understanding the dangers that could occur, XCO Group offers not only PPE clothing but protective headgear, gloves, safety boots and respiratory protection as well. Including branding on all aspects of safety gear provides better all-around company and worker visibility. PPE equipment forms a vital safety component and is a legal requirement.
Distinguishing Between Emergency Responders
With uniforms becoming more standardised, it may be difficult for some to distinguish between emergency responders. What differentiates the various emergency services is the design on their PPE clothing. High visibility vests automatically draw the eye and having the badge of the emergency service on the back or front of the vests lets all know what type of situation is being dealt with.
PPE equipment extends beyond the worn gear. First aid kits and high-visibility bags are equally vital to safety and protection. Think of high-visibility bags as a beacon that can let others know where you are in the event of an emergency. The material used for these bags together with the bright colours reflect light to catch attention, which is perfect if you are an extreme sports enthusiast prone to exploring remote areas or when children need better visibility when crossing busy roads. At XCO Group, we have also included woven barrier fences in our protective gear arsenal.
