Over the past few weeks, we’ve been busy here at TIMco HQ expanding our SHIELD brand, with the official launch of our First Aid range and new SHIELD Protective Board – both of which will launch as part of our rapidly expanding SHIELD Site Protection range.
These new extensions reflect our commitment to safety in construction, as well as delivering on our strategy of becoming a ‘one stop shop’ for builders’ merchants.
The new range includes a selection of workplace and vehicle first aid kits, as well as a heavy bleed and burns kit. The range also includes an eye care kit, heavy duty plasters and an accident book.
The workplace first aid kits include BSC and HSE kits. The BSC kits 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 durable and stylish 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 durable 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 & 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. Both kits come in a wall-mountable polypropylene case.
The SHIELD Protective Board has been developed to protect and preserve all hard floor and short twill covered floor surfaces from dust, dirt, spills, sprays and site grime. This new product complements the existing Ram Board product in the SHIELD range. The FSC certified board is made from recycled compressed fibre board and this innovative protection system is also 100% recyclable and reusable. It is also breathable 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.
The new First Aid range and SHIELD Protective Board are now available to purchase on our website. If you have any questions about our SHIELD brand, then drop us a tweet or send us a message on LinkedIn or Facebook.
