In today’s competitive landscape, happy, healthy workers are essential for business success. But it’s not just about perks and ping pong tables – a key factor is high-quality PPE.

Think about it: uncomfortable, ill-fitting equipment makes employees feel undervalued and leads to:

  • Lower compliance: Unusable PPE doesn’t get worn, it ends up on top of people’s heads, on workbenches or thrown away, increasing risk.
  • Reduced productivity: Discomfort disrupts focus, productivity and energy leading to an increased risk of accidents.
  • Unhappy employees: Feeling unsafe and under protected can have a negative impact on morale.

Solution: PPE designed for wearability

Instead, imagine comfortable, ergonomic PPE that:

  • Fits properly: One size doesn’t fit all! Ensuring PPE is well-fitted to the wearer helps prevent accidents, boosts comfort and improves confidence.
  • Stays comfortable all day: Lightweight, breathable materials and pressure-point-free designs make wearing it effortless. Employees are more likely to remain focused, productive, happy and compliant.
  • Delivers on performance: PPE that meets safety standards while being stylish and modern, makes wearing it effortless.

uvex: Wearability built-in

We design wearability into every uvex product:

  • Safety gloves: Properly-fitted safety gloves should not only be selected based on the workplace hazards, they need to fit the individual to avoid accidents, reduce discomfort, increase productivity and give wearers confidence.  The uvex phynomic range for example, is manufactured using 3D hand ‘formas’ that simulate the contours of the wearer’s hand to fit like a second skin giving high levels of dexterity and comfort. It’s independent dermatological approval ensures these gloves are safe for allergy sensitive wearers and range from sizes 5 to 12 ensuring everyone can achieve a good fit.
  • Hearing protection: Unlike traditional round plugs, our earplugs mimic the oval shape of the ear canal for a perfect fit and pressure-free wear. The uvex xact-fit are ideal for those exposed to intermittent noise, who wear gloves, people who are new to wearing hearing protection or those who have difficulty fitting plugs.  Featuring an ergonomic stem, as well as left and right fitting, this solution allows for fast, easy and accurate insertion increasing the likelihood of achieving the intended attenuation level, therefore, protecting employees hearing from long-term damage.
  • Safety footwear: The best safety footwear should be supple, allowing freedom of movement without discomfort when walking or kneeling and comfortable enough to wear all day. Properly-fitting footwear can make a significant difference to comfort, concentration levels and the avoidance of accidents. In addition to ergonomic design, features such as adaptive fit insoles that increase or decrease the dimensions within the footwear can create a customised fit for enhanced comfort.​uvex has a comprehensive offer for those working indoors S1 through to rugged, outdoor environments requiring S3 footwear. We also have products designed using a ladies last.
  • Safety eyewear: One size does not fit all. Eyewear that has been properly-fitted and selected for the individual, their workplace hazards and takes into account compatibility with other PPE can help avoid reduce discomfort, increase productivity, reduce accidents and give wearers confidence. Adaptable features such as lens inclination and extendable side arms ensure a good fit. uvex has an extensive range of eyewear depending on your workplace, impact protection and personal preferences. Its choice of lens tints can have a dramatic effect on the wearer’s vision, comfort and energy levels as well as concentration. It’s proven lens coating technology ensure clear vision and durability
