We always recommend the correct safety equipment is used with hired equipment, as specified on each product page. In many cases this will be essential in order to comply with current Health and Safety requirements. All branches carry a comprehensive range of competitively priced equipment that meets or exceed the required safety standards. Please see each separate safety product for more details.
