NZ Safety Blackwoods keeps you safe in the workplace

Whether you’re on a construction site, an engineering facility or even when you’re at home working on a DIY project, you need to ensure that both you and your team are keeping safe says Chris Mason, national manager customer experience at NZ Safety Blackwoods.

“At NZ Safety Blackwoods, the top priority is keeping people safe. We’re the experts in safety products including workwear, safety boots and PPE. Whatever you need, you’ll find friendly, helpful experts in each of our 32 trade centres nationwide. If you want to upskill yourself with more information about a particular product, you’ll find we have taken care of that too, with loads of helpful in-store educational signage, designed to help you make the right decision on the right safety solution for you.”

Hand protection made easy

When you visit a store, says Mason, you’ll see a huge range of options for hand protection. NZ Safety Blackwoods has made it easy with a colour-coded education board that outlines which options are best for what you’re looking for.

“If you need more in-depth help, one of our trained team members will be able to advise on the correct choice for your job type.”

Breathe easy, breathe safely

NZ Safety Blackwoods’ range of respirators offers broad protection from particulates and gases. Heightened by the outbreak of Covid-19, correct mask and respirator fitting has never been more important, “so there’s even more reason to take advantage of our decades of expertise”.

“NZ Safety Blackwoods has put together helpful education pieces so customers can make informed decisions. We also offer fit-tests and have online videos to help you ensure you get the right respirator and the best fit solution for your needs,” says Mason.

Fall protection

NZ Safety Blackwoods takes providing the best guidance and equipment for any job that involves a potential fall risk very seriously.

Mason says that providing the right information is key and the company has a team of experts ready to provide you with the right advice so you can complete the job safely.

He adds that in 2019, investigations by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment into falls while working at height show that more than 50% of falls are from less than three metres and some 70% of falls are from ladders and roofs.

“This shows that as a country we still have a long way to go to keep our workers safe. At NZ Safety Blackwoods we’re committed to help you take care of the technical stuff so you can get the job done.”
