Staples Safety Solutions is a new Staples division providing a single source solution for safety equipment to Australian businesses.

Specialising in a wide range of safety equipment including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and workwear, Staples Safety Solutions offers over 25,000 products to meet the workplace safety requirements of industries such as mining, construction, manufacturing, food service, transport, government and warehousing.

Joe Taylor, Head of Facility Solutions, Staples Australia and New Zealand explained that the new division was launched to fill the gap in the market for safety equipment as well as to meet the increasing demand from their customers for a single source solution for all their PPE and workwear requirements.

Staples’ Safety Specialists also advise customers on solutions for their specific requirements, ensuring they order only the necessary equipment and clothing, reducing overhead costs and excess deliveries.

Onsite vending machines with key card access can also be provided to enable staff to access safety equipment on the go at any given time. Each vending machine has an inventory management system that tracks stock usage and controls stock on hand with auto-replenish levels set by the customer. Staples can additionally provide customised reporting to help manage procurement goals for stock replenishment.

Staples Safety Solutions sources all of the safety equipment and workwear from reputable safety brands, with the complete range meeting Australian or equivalent global standards.

Staples Safety Solutions will also soon introduce a revamped online ordering platform to simplify the process of ordering workwear for customers. The new functionality will enable them to customise their uniforms with logos and associated embroidery, with assured faster turnaround time.

The Staples supply chain model has 22 warehousing and distribution points offering next day delivery in metro regions.

Staples’ new 180-page standalone catalogue showcases some of the PPE, workwear and site safety products available from Staples Safety Solutions.
