Are Your Staff Equipped For A White Winter?

It is important to gear up with appropriate safety wear, especially in winter.

Recent winter weather can bring a variety of challenges with it, particularly snow.

With limited day time hours and decreased visibility during winter, it becomes increasingly vital to dress properly for the job in hand.

Ensure that all workers are safe and can be seen this season by investing in some warm, durable and appropriate equipment.

At Matrix Uniforms, we provide a wide range of winter safety wear and personal protective equipment to keep you warm, dry and safe at times when you need it the most.

The best winter safety wear comprises thermal and waterproof properties.

We’ve listed some essential (but not limited to) safety wear for the upcoming season.
