Good quality workwear personal protection equipment (PPE) is extremely important for every arborist so that they can carry out their jobs safely. Our range of workwear PPE protects from common dangers that arborists face including falling from a height, accidents caused by chainsaws and being struck by flying debris and falling branches.
PPE workwear includes head, face and ear protection, boots, trousers, jackets, gloves and high visibility equipment. All safety products must adhere to the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 2002 which are designed to encourage people to work safely and responsibly by wearing appropriate clothing. Only CE marked products are guaranteed to comply with these regulations.
To ensure that clothing keeps you safe it is also essential to think about the size, fit and weight. It is important that equipment is comfortable to wear and can be worn together with other items. This is particularly true when selecting items from different manufacturers. We stock leading manufacturers including:
- Boots – Scafell, Treeme, Stihl, Meindl, Haix, Aquafell, Sherwood, Redland
- Trousers – Oregon, Forester, Summit, Solidur, Pfanner, Everest, Laberges, Stihl
- Jackets – Summit, Arbortec, Vermont, Tempest, Avranche, Dickies
- Helmets – Balance, Tuffmaster, Petzl, Kask
- Gloves – Treehog, Husqvarna, Harkie, Timberland, Sperian
Protecting the head with a top quality helmet is without doubt the best investment a tree surgeon can make. Chainsaw and anti-vibration gloves are recommended to avoid cuts, bruises and to absorb vibrations. While Kevlar trousers and jackets offer all round protection from injury.
