Our heritage combines the expertise of Guardsman and National Safety Supplies, backed by Bunzl PLC's vast resources.

For Utilities, Waste and Recycling sectors, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) safeguards employees from daily hazards like slips, chemical exposure and loud noises. Investing in quality and correct PPE mitigates workplace risks, promoting a safe and healthy work environment.

Every day we depend on natural gas, hydro, wind, solar and coal plants to convert resources into the energy and power that we depend on. Workers who work within this industry often operate within unique work hazards, including confined spaces, working at heights and underground work. We can help to protect against these hazards, minimise workplace injuries and help prevent long-term health risks to enhance employee wellbeing by providing PPE tailored to the individual.

For the Waste and Water sectors, the specific risks to staff and facilities in each stage of the water recovery and treatment process, whether it's employee cleaning and treating fresh water and sewage or the maintenance of the sewage system itself, could be exposed to a range of hazards. Working on water or sewage channels requires a range of specific personal protective equipment that is available from Guardsman Safety Solutions to protect against liquid splashes or needlestick injuries, as well as the risk of dermatitis or musculoskeletal disorders related to the work undertaken.

Specialists within the Utilities sectors, Guardsman Safety Solutions offers a comprehensive PPE solution for all businesses, curated from years of experience working with National UK companies at the forefront of innovation within the industry. With extensive industry experience and a diverse product portfolio, we ensure your workforce is well-equipped and protected.
