  • In for a StinkA! Is your team covered.

    Posted on: 04, Oct

    Last summer, Australia experienced the hottest summer season since records began and this summer is set to be no different, with hotter than average temperatures for the Oct-Dec period already being predicted by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.


    Queensland kicked matters off this week with a record smashing Spring heatwave that has gripped the state in recent days, spurring widespread bushfires and confirming predictions that another stinking hot one is on the cards for Aussies as we head into summer 2014.


    While this is good news for beach lovers, it's bad news for industrial workers, especially those that are exposed to the great outdoors for the duration of their work days.


    Luckily, ProChoice Safety Gear has a serious sun protection arsenal at the ready to combat the toughest of aussie temperatures, starting with the recently released ProBloc SPF 50+ Sunscreen:



    ProBloc SPF 50+

    Featuring the highest level of UVA & UVB protection on the market, the ProBloc 50+ offers 4 hours water resistance to protect even the sweatiest of workers in the sweltering heat. Like all ProChoice sunblock, the ProBloc 50+ is kind to skin, contains moisturising vitamin E, and is nano particle free.

    ProBlock SPF 30+ 

    The 30+ is still available and is the preferred choice of workers on the slightly cooler / overcast days, when the sun may be a little more bareable but apt protection is still needed to keep cancerous UV rays at bay.


    Sun Hats

    The ProChoice Poly/Cotton blend sun hat features a wide and protective brim and adjustable chin strap and is available in white, green, and navy blue. For maximum airflow, consider the well ventilated ProChoice Straw Hat, which is lightweight, durable and features a hi vis band for extra visibility.


    Hard Hat Brims

    Where hard hats must be worn, the hard hat brim is just the ticket, and ProChoice has both cotton and plastic brim options that are durable, washable, and available in a wide range of colours.


    Dont get caught out this Summer, stock up on these vital products now and ensure your site's carrying the complete ProChoice Sun Protection Range when those red faced workers come a' knocking.


  • October is Work Safety Month - Are you Safety Ambassador of the Year quality?

    Posted on: 01, Oct


    Every month should be safety month, but this year, Safe Work Australia has decreed that the focus should be officially marked in October. In response to this, our customers around the country have been fastening their seatbelts and hopping on the bandwagon by running safety specials and instore promotions on PPE for the month of October. 


    Health and Safety Authorities across Australia are hosting a series of free events and workshops and are encouraging people to register as safety ambassadors for their workplace. "All you need to register is a commitment to improving safety in your workplace by motivating other staff to participate in safety month", said SWA Chair Ann Sherry. Registered ambassadors will each receive a kit which includes posters and information to help organise and promote safety in their workplace.


    SWA have also called for nominations for the Safety Ambassador of the Year Award, designed to recognise Safety Ambassadors who show dedication and leadership in workplace safety, not just during Safe Work Australia Month, but all year round.


    ?Download the Work Safety Month App for information on events taking place around Australia during safety month, as well as useful tips and statistics on workplace safety in Australia. It is available from both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.


    BIG Safety endorses the focus on safety and urges all of our clients to participate in Safe Work Month this October.
