Don’t Forget To Pick Up Your PPE!

In the world of construction, safety isn't just an option — it's a necessity. And at the centre of every safe construction site lies a simple yet indispensable tool: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Every FTH Hire Hub stocks a wide range of PPE. Our range is designed for trade professionals and DIYers, providing protection for key areas of the body during construction, landscaping and building tasks. 

Construction sites

Construction Sites are bustling hubs of activity, where hazards lurk around every corner. From heavy machinery to falling debris, workers face risks that demand protection. That's where PPE comes in. Whether it's hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, or steel-toed boots, these essentials form a vital barrier between workers and potential harm.

By investing in proper protective gear, companies demonstrate their commitment to the well-being of their workforce. PPE shouldn't be just a tickbox on a safety list, it's about safeguarding the individuals who power progress. 

At Home

Whilst there are no regulations to using PPE at home, it is just as imperative to incorporate PPE into your DIY projects. Being at home doesn’t make you any safer and this is possibly where more injuries can happen. 

In our new Plant, Tool & Equipment Hire catalogue, you can find the recommended PPE for use with our hire equipment. 

The following are examples of PPE typically available from FTH Hire Group:

Eye Protection

From shielding your eyes against flying debris to protecting against hazardous chemicals, these simple yet indispensable tools are the frontline defence for your vision. We sell safety goggles and wrap around safety glasses.

Beyond protecting against impact and punctures, steel toe boots offer stability on uneven terrain and shield against electrical hazards.

Ear Defenders

From the roar of jackhammers to the constant hum of heavy equipment, prolonged exposure to high noise levels can lead to irreversible damage. That's where ear defenders step in, muffling the din and preserving your hearing. We stock standard and premium ear defenders.

Protective Gloves

For many different types of work, we have different choices: disposable latex gloves, PVC wrist gloves, PVC gauntlets and thermal gloves.

Breathing Masks

During certain building tasks, the air is often thick with dust, fumes, and other airborne particles that pose serious health risks. That's where wearing a breathing mask becomes paramount. These masks act as a barrier, filtering out harmful contaminants and ensuring that you breathe clean, safe air. FTH Hire Group offer twin half mask respirators, moulded cup respirators and face masks.

Body protection is great for covering your clothes but also for protecting them. From high visibility vests, disposable coveralls, rain suits and knee pads, we can help protect you, your body as well as ensuring a bit more comfort whilst working.

Head Protection

Equipped with features such as impact-resistant shells, adjustable suspension systems, and integrated face shields, Safety helmets and forestry helmet kits provide comprehensive protection without compromising comfort or mobility.

In the fast-paced world of construction, time is money. Yet, cutting corners on safety is a gamble no one can afford. By prioritising PPE, you not only safeguard your workers and yourself, but you will also protect your bottom line. Having a work related injury can be a very distressing and costly mistake to make, for the member of staff as well as the company.
