TIMco has expanded its SHIELD brand with the official launch of a First Aid range, as well as introducing the new SHIELD Protective Board.
These new introductions are said to reflect the company’s commitment to safety in construction, as well as delivering on the company’s strategy of becoming a ‘one stop shop’ for builders’ merchants.
The range includes a selection of workplace and vehicle first aid kits, as well as a heavy bleed and burns kit, an eye care kit, heavy duty plasters and an accident book.
The workplace first aid kits also include BSC and HSE kits. The BSC kits reportedly meet the first new standard for statutory First Aid Kits in the workplace since 1997. These kits reflect the changes in both workplace practice and risks, making them demonstrably more ‘fit for purpose’ in today’s environment. The kits come in a polypropylene case and are wall mountable with an integrated bracket.
The HSE kits contain content based on 1997 Approved Code of Practice and come in a polypropylene box with green safety clips, integrated carry handle, and a secure airtight lid to provide protection from dust and water. All workplace kits are available in three sizes – small, medium and large.
The Heavy Bleed and Burns kit has been specifically designed to provide rapid and effective treatment to the kind of serious injuries tradespeople may face on site. It includes a major bleed trauma dressing and sterile burn dressings. The Eye Wash Station kit includes saline solution, eye pods and pipettes and meets current HSE regulations.
The SHIELD Protective Board has been added to the range and has been developed to protect and preserve all hard floor and short twill covered floor surfaces from dust, dirt, spills, sprays and site grime.
The FSC certified board is made from recycled compressed fibre board and is also 100% recyclable and reusable and can be laid on wooden floors and new concrete. It will not trap any moisture, therefore, allowing the substrate to dry whilst also protecting it from damage.
Stewart Lloyd, Associate Director of Purchasing for TIMco, commented: “The welfare and safety of our end users is of paramount importance to us here at TIMco, which is why we have launched this extensive First Aid range under our growing SHIELD brand, as well as our new SHIELD protective board. We look forward to introducing exciting new product additions to our expanding customer base.”
