Sign up and SUPPORT the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme
The British Safety Industry Federation has launched as a dedicated website for employers
looking to source PPE with the peace of mind that they are purchasing from an accredited, audited and competent supplier. The new website
offers the ability to search by location on an interactive map for suppliers that have committed to becoming Registered Safety Suppliers. Let’s
eradicate unsafe, non-compliant, illegal safety products and improve safety across the UK.
A Registered Safety Supplier (RSS) is a company that has declared to supply only safety equipment that fully complies with the standards and
regulations relating to those products. Independent random tests are carried out on scheme member’s product to ensure they are continuously
meeting the standards and regulations. Read more on the newly launched website and take a look at who is a RSS.
Go to and sign up to become a Supporter of the scheme. Supporters agree that they will
always try to buy from a company that is a member of the RSS Scheme meaning that they recognise the vital importance of sourcing PPE that
does its job properly and can be relied upon. Companies that sign up to be Supporters show their commitment to safety in the workplace and
this is recognised by the RSS Scheme by putting their logo onto the website to highlight the commitment made.
Visit the new website and utilise the search for suppliers, Resources section offering informative downloads and the Ask BSIF section where
you can submit any safety related questions you have.
