Builders merchant Jewson has launched a new Health & Safety Awareness leaflet for customers.
Available at all Jewson’s Tool Hire branches and a number of Jewson branches nationwide, the detailed leaflet contains the latest products, tools and equipment as well as practical advice to help trade professionals stay safe on site.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), nearly one in five construction sites fails safety checks, so Jewson is promoting the importance of health and safety to its customers through the new leaflet.
It includes an overview of relevant legislation, advice on important issues including working at height; dust control; dealing with asbestos; managing LPG and Gas Fuelled Equipment; Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) as well as Whole Body Vibration (WBV).
The leaflet also covers the latest offers on safety boots and trainers; first aid kits; waterproof jackets and trousers; ladders and harness kits as well as respirators and disposable coveralls.
