Christmas is a busy time of year for everyone. This is especially true of the big man himself, Santa Claus. We’ve all seen images of the jolly chap flying around in his sleigh, but has he stopped to consider his safety? We all want to see Santa again next year. So all of us at PPE would like to make some suggestions to keep him safe for all the boys and girls in future..
So here are 5 items of PPE that we think would help Santa on his rounds.
Clearly, this year has already seen significant changes in how we do our business. It will probably mean changes for Santa too. We think that as he will be entering people’s homes for work purposes, he’ll need a good supply of facemasks, hand sanitiser and gloves.
However we’d recommend to him that the removal of facemasks for the eating of mince pies is strictly prohibited!
As Santa works at height for a majority of his day, he should really wear a suitable hard hat. This will prevent injury should he slip on a roof or bang his head on a mantlepiece.
Due to working with heavy sacks full of toys, Santa needs to ensure his toes are protected. Steel toe cap safety boots are a great way to do this. And as they are available in black, they should not detract from his current coordinated fashion decisions.
Red and white are great colours to wear during a winter night. However, a high visibility vest or jacket is better. High vis trousers would also be recommended. This will allow Santa to be seen by vehicles, pedestrians and aircraft pilots.
He may even wish to upgrade his brown sack to a modern-style high vis bag!
Working in the dark can be hard on the eyes. So we would suggest to Santa a head torch to make things easier on Christmas eve. This way he can keep his hands free to deliver toys whilst seeing well in the dark.
All of this equipment can be purchased at PPE Industrial Supplies. But we’d encourage Santa to plan in advance.
PPE Industrial Supplies will be closed from 12:30 pm on Wednesday the 23rd of December 2020. They will re-open at 7:30 am on Wednesday 6th January 2021.
A very merry Christmas and joyous new year from everyone at PPE Industrial Supplies!
