Construction sites can be a hazardous places. It's always best to make sure you are properly dressed for your working environment, so if you work in construction, you should invest in the right construction PPE for the job you're doing.
PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is equipment worn to protect oneself from health and safety risks, such as those that might be present on a construction site.
We stock an extensive range of personal protective equipment here at SafetyLiftinGear. Here are some examples of what we can supply:
On almost all construction sites, appropriate headwear must be worn to minimise the risk of injury (in compliance with the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations of 1992). There is a high likelihood of falling objects in construction environments, and by wearing the right PPE, you will be reducing your risk of a serious injury.

When working in loud construction environments, ear defenders may be necessary to protect your ears from long-term damage. Loud bursts of noise can perforate the eardrum, and continuous loud noise can cause tinnitus (a continuous ringing or buzzing in the ears). The ear protectors that we stock at SafetyLiftinGear contain soft foam-filled cushions, which provide a seal against harmful noises.

Construction sites can be dusty environments with a high risk of hazardous objects flying into workers' eyes. Protective PPE may be needed to protect the eyes from harm - debris in the eye can lead to scratches and infections, and in more severe cases, can lead to loss of sight. This is why eye protection is an essential part of construction PPE.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is worn by workers to protect themselves from potential hazards in the workplace. Workplaces which require physical labour especially need the different types of PPE to protect their workers. PPE protects a variety of different body parts from harm, all the way from eye protection to breathing apparatus. But with so many different products you may be wondering what are the different types of PPE.
So to help you out, we will be taking a look at what are the different types of PPE, what they do and why you need them.
PPE Ear Defenders protect your ears from the damaging effects of loud sounds.
When working in a loud environment, such as construction work or drilling, ear protection is necessary to protect the inner linings of your ears. Damage from loud noises can rupture the eardrum or damage the bones in the middle ear. Tinnitus (a ringing in the ears) can also be caused by exposure to loud noises for an extended period of time. To protect yourself from these types of long term damage, PPE Ear Defenders are a necessity.
PPE Safety Goggles protect your eyes from debris and chemicals that may be in your work environment.
If you find yourself working in an area which has a lot of dust or particles in the air, safety goggles are the safest and most efficient way to complete your job. Safety Goggles are also necessary when working in an environment with chemicals. Chemical substances in the eye can lead to chemical eye burn, and in worst case circumstances, the loss of sight. This damage is easily avoided with the use of PPE Safety Goggles.
High Vis PPE Clothing ensures you are as visible as possible to your colleagues, passers-by, and vehicles.
High Vis PPE Clothing is necessary for those working in hazardous or poorly lit environments, such as a road or on construction sites. High Vis clothing typically has reflective bands sewn into them too, to increase the visibility during the day and night. When working on a road especially, High Vis PPE clothing will reflect the light from the car headlights and will make you clearly visible, preventing any road accidents.
PPE Multi-Gas Detectors display what type and what percentage of gas is in any environment.
PPE Multi-Gas Detectors are vital to any type of confined space work or any construction work involving pipes. Not only can a high concentration of different types of gas be physically damaging, it can also be extremely flammable. This is why a PPE Multi-Gas Detector is important to keep on hand in any environment in which you are unsure of the gas levels. This particular PPE Multi-Gas Detector also comes with audible and visible alarms to ensure you are completely aware of your environment.
A PPE Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatus can provide you with air through the use of an inflatable air cushion and a half mask. This kit can supply you with air up to 10 minutes.
If you find yourself in a dangerous environment without enough air, a PPE Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatus can provide you with those extra minutes you need to escape. This Breathing Apparatus will come in especially handy if you are working in confined areas or somewhere where there is a likelihood that you may get trapped.
Okay so now you know what are the different types of PPE are, but is this still not what you're looking for? We have a range of different types of PPE here. If you have any further enquires, feel free to contact us or call us on 0808 123 69 69.
The ultimate hazard of working at height is, of course, falling. You do not have to fall from a great height to injure yourself. The severity of your injury is determined by many factors including weight, age, how you land, and the surface you fall on.
When we hear the phrase ‘working at height’ it’s common to assume this refers to working on roofs or skyscrapers, but actually, the UK Health & Safety Executive defines it as "work carried out in any place where a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury".
If you or someone you employ is in ANY way capable of falling from a height and sustaining an injury, you must take the proper safety precautions. When trying to determine the risks of your workplace it may be necessary to do a height risk assessment, we recently posted a blog on how to do this that you can read here.
Regardless of the height you work at, it’s important to remember that catastrophic injuries or even death can happen from falls of only a few feet. The hazards of working at height should not be underestimated, and it’s important to provide the proper equipment to ensure safety.
We provide various equipment to reduce the risk of falling such as safety harnesses, fall arrest blocks, and ladder safety kits. We also offer a working at height training course to ensure you know exactly how to keep yourself safe.

When working at heights, your safety harness is vitally important! It's the piece of equipment that will prevent you from falling from a height. A safety harness allows you to attach yourself to an immovable object, thus ensuring you will not hit the ground if you trip or fall from height. Falling from height is one of the main causes of injury in the workplace, and therefore, it's paramount that you're equipped with the correct equipment.
Safety harnesses reassures your safety when working in hazardous situations, and it will not only reduce the risk of an accident, but it will also allow you to work with both hands freely as the safety harness is attached to your body. There's no denying the importance of a safety harness, and we strongly recommend to anyone working in construction to wear one, as it could be life-saving.
Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we supply a huge selection of safety harnesses to ensure you remain safe when working at height. Even if you're looking for something more specific than your generic safety harness - such as a flame resistant harness or a Hi-vis harness - we're confident you'll find a harness that will suit your needs.
