The last few weeks has seen the UK covered in snow, the roads,
rails and skies brought to a standstill and severe weather warnings
issued across various media channels. At times like this, when the
harsh winter sets in, it is important that people take the necessary
precautions to insure they are safe and warm.
In the workplace, it is also imperative that employers insure that their workforce
is well looked after and in no way at risk. Individuals do need to take it upon
themselves to insure their own safety to a certain degree; however, companies also
have a responsibility to their employees. Brookes provides an extensive range of
work wear that can help keep your workforce looking professional as well as keeping
them safe at all times no matter what the environment.

sure that all employees have the correct work

dry in bitterly cold and wet conditions. It is also important that shoes and boots
have proper grip to prevent anyone slipping on the ice.

are not only useful for protecting hands from the cold but also, depending on the
work being done, for protecting the hands from sparks or corrosive chemicals.
Helmets are a vital piece of kit on any worksite. In the winter months when it may
well be darker, wetter and colder during working hours, the risk of accidents
happening naturally increases and so, in line with the well known adage, safety
In winter months when people are more likely to be working outside after dark the
importance of High Vis clothing is paramount, particularly for those working on
roads. Night time makes it harder for people to be seen and it is especially hard to
see people when there is bad weather too.
