If you run a seasonal business such as a lawn care or landscaping business, then spring is when you begin to get busy, and also when you prepare for the hectic time that summer can bring. At Abolox® Safety, we want to make sure that you and your crew has the safety gear you need to protect yourself this season.
Whether you’re looking for eye protection, work gloves, or safety apparel, you can find everything in our online store. We carry products from leading manufacturers such as Ergodyne and Radians, and we can help you choose the best options for your company.
Head, Face, and Neck Protection
If you’re cutting tree branches, running a jackhammer, or working in sunny conditions this spring, then it’s important to protect your head and face from injury and sun exposure. Eye protection is key for any cutting operation, as you don’t want debris getting into your eyes. If there’s a potential for things to fall on your head, then the appropriate hard hat needs to be worn at all times.
When it comes to the sun, the right cap, hat, or neck shade can save your from sunburn and heat exhaustion. We also carry cooling headwear and towels that can help you keep the heat at bay. If you’re working outside for eight hours, then it’s imperative that you protect yourself from the sun.
Working at Height
Your job may require you to work at height during spring, such as when you’re trimming those high branches or washing the windows on a tall building. You have all the harnesses, ropes, and other gear you need, but what about tool connectors and lanyards?
If you need to keep tools with you while working at height, you may need a connector or lanyard. Your harness makes it virtually impossible to wear a tool belt, but you still need those tools next to you. Having the right accessory can make all the difference as you hang a hundred feet above the ground.
Protect Your Hands
During the winter, you wore thicker gloves to ward off the cold. Now that spring is here, you’ll want something a bit lighter on your hands that still offers superior protection. No matter what type of surface or materials you’re working with, it’s important to have the right gloves for the job.
At Abolox, we carry cut-resistant, impact-resistant, material-handling, and many other gloves for outdoor jobs. You don’t want the bulkiness of winter work gloves for spring, and you can find everything from standard mechanic’s gloves to hi-visibility gloves in our catalog.
Safety Vests for Your Crew
Spring is also when a lot of highway and road construction begins, since the weather finally allows for old asphalt and concrete to be removed and new surfaces to be laid. Hi-vis safety vests are required for any road construction crew, and if your current vests are getting worn or faded, then it’s time to order new ones before you begin that next project.
We carry Class 1, 2, and 3 safety vests, so depending on what your job calls for, you can find the right options for your crew. The road you’re working on and the surrounding hazards such as drivers or weather conditions will determine which class of vest you need. If you have questions about safety apparel, please don’t hesitate to ask.
As spring rolls on, we want to make sure that you have all the safety gear your business needs. No matter what type of job you’re doing or where you’re doing it, Abolox can provide hard hats, gloves, eye protection, and everything else that’s designed to keep you safe from harm.
