When it comes to choosing personal protective equipment, it’s important to consider the type of hazard you’re exposed to. You’ll also need to think about what type of safety clothing or equipment will be most comfortable for you or your employees to wear.
What We Offer
If you work in a hazardous profession, it is important to have PPE or protective workwear to prevent injuries as a result of accidents. In construction, manufacturing and physical labour industries, the risk of injury is heightened, therefore the need for protective clothing is greater.

High Visibility Clothing
First invented in the 1930s and typically worn on the torso or arms, high visibility clothing is utilised in almost every industry. Often fluorescent or reflective, this material is designed to increase a person’s visibility in low light, low visibility or hazardous conditions.
Its ability to suit a multitude of industries has made high visibility extremely recognisable. Predominantly manufactured using fluorescent bright colours (orange or yellow), these garments are easily identifiable during the day. The reflective element of high-visibility clothing allows the garment to reflect light back to its source. This means that if a car’s headlights hit you, you will be much more visible to the driver.
Fire Retardant Workwear
Working with open flames, molten metals or extreme heat can cause devastating skin burns.
At OHEAP, we offer a wide range of flame retardant workwear that meets or exceeds all of the requirements set out by the EN ISO 11612 standard.
Our FR clothing possesses the ability to withstand ignition or self-extinguish once set alight. Often manufactured using natural resources such as wool or cotton, many of our garments are inherently fire retardant meaning they will withstand multiple washes.
Arc Flash Clothing
Arc flash is a serious electrical hazard that can cause serious injury or death. What is Arc flash? It’s a dangerous effect that can occur when an electric current passes through the air from one conductor to another. If you work with or around electricity, it’s important to know what arc flash is and how to protect yourself from it.
