This new sales tool features a selection of personal protective equipment (PPE) from leading category manufacturers such as 3M®, Energizer®, Ergodyne®, First Aid Only®, Honeywell®, Impact®, Kimberly-Clark® and Zoll Medical®. In addition, the catalog will provide education on OSHA regulations and ANSI standards and helpful tips on how companies can keep their workplace compliant. Products featured include hard hats, safety goggles, ear protection, gloves, respirators, signage, first aid and much more.

“The safety market represents an attractive opportunity for business products resellers to target”, said Chris Whiting, S.P. Richards VP Sales – Facility and Breakroom Solutions. “It provides another category for revenue growth, similar to the cleaning and breakroom segment a decade prior. Plus it enhances a reseller’s value to their customer base by adding another piece to their one-stop shop proposition.”
