Black Box Safety is authorized by manufacturers to distribute the following safety equipment including eye, face, and head protection; hearing protection; respiratory protection, hand protection, foot protection, and high-visibility garments such as vests and jackets, safety apparel that provides protection from electrical energy (arc flash and arc blast), fire and heat, punctures and cuts, and bloodborne pathogens.
We specialize in the prevention of serious injury in the workplace.
How We Do It
Black Box Safety gives companies timely access to expertise that existing staff may lack time or skills to supply. It counters the tendency toward one-size-fits-all solutions created when safety managers, who typically make equipment purchase decisions, lack time or knowledge to conduct effective risk assessments or evaluate highly technical products and rely instead on recommendations from distributors of safety equipment.
Distributors, who do not have daily experience with the company, rely on manufacturers’ reps for product recommendations, but reps are two degrees distant from the company’s actual needs and primarily focused on sales. As each person looks to another for crucial information, detail is lost, increasing the potential for money wasted on solutions that go unused or, worse, provision of insufficient or even incorrect solutions, leading to safety failures.
