In today’s world convenience is everything. Whether it’s automatic features in your car or apps on your phone, people everywhere are looking for ways to make their lives and businesses run smoothly and more efficiently. However, convenience should never impede your personal health and safety, especially on a job site.
According to Statistics Canada, workplace injury rates continue to rise, and Ontario in particular is witnessing an unprecedented number of incidents. The National Safety Council (NSC) said the top three leading causes of workplace injuries are overexertion, bodily reactions and slips, trips and falls. Unfortunately, these account for an alarming 84 percent of all nonfatal injuries at work so building a culture of prevention is essential to an organization’s health and safety program.
At Bunzl, we specialize in workplace safety needs, and no one knows more about that than our own Dave Hart, Market Manager of Bunzl Safety BC. Dave has been in the safety industry for over two decades and has a wealth of knowledge and experience.
He’s extremely excited about their new mobile safety initiative and after much success with the program in BC, Dave is looking to bring that same excitement here to the GTA. “We’re bringing safety to the customer” Hart proudly proclaimed and with a fleet of mobile safety vehicles on the rise, it’s easy to see why job sites and contractors alike are eager to become part of this convenient program.
“We go to where it’s inconvenient for them to leave their job sites and provide them solutions and safety supplies” Hart continued. By bringing these services directly to the customer, not only do they save time by not having to go elsewhere to get these products themselves, but Dave’s crew is quick to assess any other safety issues or concerns the customer might have while onsite.
Being able to access the right PPE on a job site has proven to be invaluable. They get what they need when they need it. Dave’s certified safety team also conduct fit-tests and inspections to ensure your business is running optimally and in compliance with all required legislation, codes and standards.
And with the recent changes to first aid legislation, why risk not having the most up-to-date equipment to attend to your workplace personnel in the event of an emergency. These requirements are not to be taken lightly and must always be enforced. This includes having access to a proper First Aid Kit, an employee certified in first aid training and more.
Our fully equipped mobile fleet stock the most frequently needed items and can even accommodate special requests within a 24-hour turnaround period. By reducing downtime, providing health and safety essentials and making sensible recommendations, Bunzl can help keep your costs down and your entire team running safely and more efficiently.
