Body Protection Equipment is the single most important, and often neglected, category in ensuring your employees will not come to harm or injury on the job. Many occupations and industries rely on employers to provide adequate coverage in safety gear, some of which is even required by law. For certain industries, sufficient body safety protection includes wearing a dust mask or rounded knee pads. For others, individuals working on scaffolding such as construction workers or window washers require a full body harness and fall protection. Even office or retail employees who sit or stand for long periods of time may need back support. And for those people working in harsh weather conditions, winter protection may be essential to safeguard against injury due to the harsh elements.
