MECHANIX WEAR - EMEA is a BSIF Registered Safety Supplier
The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) has created the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme (RSSS) where companies displaying the scheme’s logo have signed a binding declaration that the safety equipment, they offer meets the appropriate standards, fully complies with the PPE regulations and is appropriately CE marked. Starting in 2021 Mechanix Wear EMEA will also comply with new UKCA regulations. Taking a stand on fake PPE All PPE must be correctly tested and certified to meet the appropriate European standard. Unfortunately, the quantity of non-approved product being sold into the UK is on the increase. Even worse, some items are in fact counterfeits of existing products, putting your workforces safety at risk. To help combat the influx of counterfeit and illegal PPE The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) has introduced the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme (RSSS). This scheme allows members to identify themselves as having made a formal declaration that they are selling only products that are genuine and legal. The Registered Safety Supplier Scheme acts as a signpost for people to ensure they can buy from a reputable company that they can trust to supply genuine legal products and provide good advice. MECHANIX WEAR EMEA is a member of the BSIF Registered Safety Supplier Scheme and guarantees all its safety equipment meets the appropriate standards, fully complies with the PPE regulations and is appropriately CE marked. The Safety Supply Accreditation Course The BSIF have developed the Safe Supply Accreditation Course to help customers have confidence that the advice they are receiving from their PPE supplier is accurate and the products are appropriate for their needs. The course comes with a recognized qualification from the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). At Mechanix Wear, we are proud of our UK sales team who have all passed the BSIF Safe Supply Accreditation. The qualification demonstrates their high level of knowledge and expertise regarding selling safety products to the market.
