Safety

Westminster International's Safety Solutions for Equipment and ServicesIn order to allow individuals and companies to operate to their full potential it is imperative that they occupy a safe environment. It is also a key requirement that medical staff are adequately equipped to be able to provide aid to those in need of assistance.

Employers in certain industries are obliged to protect their staff by providing safety equipment such as hard-hats and high-visibility clothing. Ensuring that workers are provided with sufficient illumination for the task they are performing, creating and maintaining clearly signed and unobstructed emergency exits, providing a working environment that is adequately ventilated to protect workers from harmful fumes and chemicals, is also a requirement for every employer. The management of risk and contingency planning in the event of a hazardous situation is now a legal requirement in many countries, as well as an essential aspect of good practice.

The health of all citizens is essential to a well functioning society. Preventing the spread of biological hazards such as MRSA, SARS, Avian flu, Anthrax, Swine Flu, etc, is of great importance. The outbreak of an epidemic can quickly spread in today's globally interconnected world, and measures must be taken to prevent infectious diseases from easily spreading. Even during periods where there is a low risk from infectious disease it is important to provide healthcare and sanitation facilities which are clean and have uninterrupted access to power. Westminster supplies Stretchers, Emergency Vehicles, Trauma Packs and Field Kits, which are all common necessities of emergency and medical staff.
