Views on Gas Detection
With the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 2022 scheduled for amendment with the 1992 Regulations being extended to employers’ and employees’ duties in respect of PPE to a wider group of workers. These changes will mean that employers will now have duty to concern the provision and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) at work.
With these scheduled changes leading to a shift in who is responsible for workplace PPE, Guardsman have in response to this begun developing conversations with existing relationships in gas detection to identify the pains their customers may have and to allow the easiest way to provide correct equipment.
Working with Crowcon
Through continuous communication Crowcon will allow Guardsman to extend the safety they provide. Our partnership has also allowed for the enhanced understanding of gas detection and its importance in certain industries, all of which allow for Guardsman to provide gas detection products within the industries they provide, such as manufacture and automotive. “Our partnership with Crowcon now offers a solution to our customers that we were unable to offer previously, thereby enhance our specialism in providing PPE to existing and future customers.”
