Health and Safety is a very important aspect of our working lives: “It is a requirement of the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 that employers may make appropriate PPE clothing and equipment available to employees exposed to health and safety hazards”.
To enhance our product portfolio and improve our services to members, the Northern Housing Consortium/Consortium Procurement is considering creating a procurement framework based upon the supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to include clothing and corporate wear. It is anticipated that this will provide all members with a choice of one-stop-shop(s) within their own geographic area, for the provision of all PPE to include protection for eyes, ears, head, feet, body, wet, dry, and corporate clothing as well as first aid, “slips trips and falls” and respiratory equipment.
It would be a valuable contribution if we can ask our members (notably those involved in procurement) to advise of your possible interest in accessing such a framework and to send us an estimate of your total expenditure on such product – it is likely that financial accounting teams could identify annual expenditure against relative suppliers which when totalled will give the detail which we need for our exercise; please forward to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively if you would like an informal discussion please contact Mark Cant on 0191 566 1033.
