Bunzl Safety, a comprehensive safety product supplier, is expanding its mobile safety service into Ontario.

In October, it rolled out a new fleet of mobile safety vehicles in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), providing same-day delivery of safety products and supplies directly to businesses and workers.

Over the last 30 years, Bunzl’s Mobile Safety service has delivered essential safety supplies to construction sites, warehouses and other businesses across British Columbia’s lower mainland. With the launch of the new same-day site service in Canada’s largest market, even more hard-working Canadians will have on-demand access to critical supplies including personal protective equipment (PPE), and first-aid kit replenishments.

“Bunzl Safety is committed to keeping Canadian workers safer on the job,” said Lajos Guta, Bunzl Safety’s general manager. “Convenient access to the right gear, information on how to fit and wear it, and updates on safety regulations are key to a safe and productive job site. We’re proud to expand our mobile services to provide just-in-time safety products, service and support to many more of our customers.”

In addition to delivering hard hats, work gloves, first aid kits, defibrillators and countless other workplace safety products, Bunzl’s Mobile Safety reps are trained and equipped to inform employers and workers on the equipment best suited for specific high-risk applications and environments.

“When safety is compromised, there’s no time to wait for product orders. Our mobile safety vehicles respond to requests for immediate and emergency site visits,” said Guta. “Vehicles are stocked with the most critical safety gear and products needed by labourers, mechanics, machinists and other workers.”

Employers who fail to provide appropriate safety gear put their workers at a higher risk of injury. That can lead to downtime, lost productivity and employee turnover, significantly impacting output and profitability.

“Health and safety plays an important role in our customers’ ability to attract and retain workers,” said Dave Huck, vice-president of Bunzl Safety. “We know that keeping people outfitted with the right protective gear not only improves productivity but communicates a commitment to employee health and wellness on the job.”
