Personal Protective Equipment – What Does My Business Need?

During these unprecedented times, information surrounding Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can be a little confusing and certainly overwhelming given the challenging times businesses are faced with right now. Whether your business has already returned to work, you are making a phased return to work or considering plans for the coming months, PPE is a worthwhile investment to help facilitate these plans and keep all your employees safe.  With a variety of PPE options for all sectors, including Hospitality, Retail, Construction and Engineering, Transport, Emergency Services and Office Environments, there is something to keep everyone safe in their job roles.


Masks are an effective item of PPE to help minimise the risk of transmission. However, there are a variety of types of face masks which can be confusing for businesses when it comes to purchasing. Options 1 – 5 are disposable medical face masks, which are intended for single use only and must be disposed of after use.

Options 6 and 7 however are machine washable face masks which can be used more than once after being washed. Option 7 is a Knitted Fabric Mask, has the additional option to add your businesses logo.
