Guardsman Safety Solutions was formed by merging two of the UK's leading personal protective equipment (PPE) distributors, Guardsman and National Safety Supplies, bringing rich industry expertise, a vast selection of high-quality PPE products and near-endless value-added services we have available to ensure your staff are safe and you remain compliant.

Ensuring staff safety is paramount in today's demanding Distribution, Transport and Logistics working environment. The industry is certainly a challenging one, we can see the different layers of what goes from moving something from location A to location B. No matter how long the journey, you can rest assured that Guardsman Safety Solutions has the expertise and resources to ensure your staff are kept safe during their working day.

PPE is one of the most crucial barriers between your employees and the hazards they face each day. In the Distribution, Transport and Logistics industry, these risks can come in many forms, from trips, hand injuries, injuries from falling objects, chemical exposure and more!

Those working in the warehousing and distribution sector are often on their feet all day, working in harsh lighting and fluctuating temperatures. At Guardsman Safety Solutions, we offer head-to-toe protection including eyewear in a range of lens tints to help reduce eye strain and fatigue, safety footwear with high levels of cushioning and energy/shock absorption to support wearer well-being, and cut-resistant gloves for manual handling.

PPE for the Transport industry will provide essential protection in high-risk job roles as well as prioritising employee well-being when working in adverse weather conditions and environments. Guardsman Safety Solutions provides hi-vis and multi-norm specialist clothing and workwear to comply with EN Standards such as EN20471, RIS-3279-TOM (Rail Industry), EN343, EN14116, EN11612, EN342 and EN1149.

Workwear for the Transport and Logistics industry can include uniforms for public-facing employees, specialist workwear for welding and engineers, or PPE for facility cleaners.

  • Head Protection: Protecting your head from falling objects and bumps with our wide range of helmets and bump caps. Offering a large range of colours suitable for instant identification of job roles in accordance with the widely used scheme from Build UK.

  • Eye and Face Protection: Safety glasses and goggles can prevent injury from flying debris, chemical-based products, and splashes when handling hazardous goods from warehouse to delivery. Goggles, visors and faceshields integrated with head protection for protection when carrying out roles like welding.

  • Hearing Protection: Ear plugs and ear defenders as well as communication sets ideal for the distribution, transport and logistic industry.

  • Hand Protection: Gloves safeguard hands from cuts, abrasions and chemical exposure when handling potentially harmful goods. Warehouse roles and logistics exposes hands to materials like cardboard, packing tape and plastics that can cause dry hands and cut/abrasion hazards. Guardsman Safety Solutions provides hand protection that is lightweight, dexterous, and breathable to aid in muscle fatigue and skin irritation.

  • Safety Footwear: Safety boots, trainers, wellingtons and riggers are some of the products we have available and these can prevent the risk of injury and provide slip resistance and overall protection, depending on the product and the suited task you need them for.

  • High-Visibility Clothing and Workwear: Visibility is crucial as a large portion of work in this industry will be carried out in low visibility so the benefit of being seen at night cannot be overlooked. To help provide additional visibility around moving vehicles, large machinery and potential crowds of people.

  • Site Equipment: Kitting out your sites with everything you need, from road barriers and signage to first aid kits and toilet rolls. Spill control products, hand tools, communication sets and canteen equipment, we can be your sole supplier for onsite consumables.

We work with some of the most respected and recognisable brands in the world to ensure we deliver only the best products for your safety needs. We supply products that have been tested to the highest standards to make sure you remain compliant during your journey with us.

Supply chain compliance is an extremely important component Guardsman Safety Solutions take seriously and a key ingredient to our continued success as a respected PPE distributor. We strive to operate responsibly and partner with suppliers who share our commitment to ethical and sustainable practices. We have also introduced our very own Sustainable Product Award classification system to give you the level of transparency and compliance you deserve.

We invest in our people, and this is the reason why we have enjoyed sustained success over the years and will continue to do so moving forward. Guardsman Safety Solutions prides itself on attracting a diverse and talented team from various backgrounds. This dedicated vision to creating an open and healthy working environment is what we are proud of and we will continue to push to make things even better as we look towards a bright future.
