World Day for Safety and Health at Work is April 28April 14, 2017
On April 28 of this year, the International Labour Organization marks the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, an annual day of awareness and reflection on the importance of occupational safety. Amid today’s heightened demand for performance and efficiency at work, workplace safety is not an issue that can be taken lightly.
Since 1993, we’ve helped companies provide their employees with personal protective equipment (PPE). It began when Union Pacific Railroad asked IVM to build a custom PPE vending solution that could dispense items including gloves and earplugs – not the kind of goods one would ordinarily find in a vending machine. IVM met the challenge and has helped Union Pacific seamlessly distribute safety equipment to employees, while also enabling Union Pacific to automatically document PPE usage.
IVM’s PPE vending solutions have since been deployed across a variety of industries and settings – from nuclear plants to construction sites.
Today’s fast-paced and evolving work environment poses daily challenges and pressures, including occupational safety and health. For many industries, PPE is an essential requirement. Failure to provide adequate PPE presents a potential physical risk to employees, and it could lead to serious legal and financial consequences for employers.
IVM’s automated PPE vending solutions are customized to meet each client’s specific needs while controlling supply costs, maintaining safety compliance and most importantly, ensuring the well-being of employees.
