This web page covers our retail only Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) vending machine solutions with payment acceptance. This type of system is particularly suited to event, exhibition / trade show, or construction environments where 3rd party contractors visit site and have forgotten their hi-vis vests and other essential safety items. Controlling the use of PPE under these circumstances can prove particularly difficult for companies operating the site. On the one hand they need to reduce wastage and loss; and on the other they have a legal responsibility to ensure staff are properly equipped in terms of health and safety when entering their site.
So, for example, outside contractors cannot be allowed to access the site without suitable PPE so if they do not have this they would need to be supplied with loan items. Invariably these are taken away when the contractor leaves, at a cost to the site manager. Although individual items may be relatively low cost, the sums can add up considerably over the lifetime of a particular site.
Similarly, for some locations, e.g. events and exhibitions, items such as high-vis jackets have to be worn at the beginning and end of the event when stands are respectively being set up or taken down. Providing such items to the large percentage of visitors who are typically not familiar with site safety requirements, and who do not arrive with such high-vis vests, can be expensive because of the quantities involved and the need to employ a staff member at the venue entrance to hand out the kit.
Our PPE and industrial control systems can dramatically reduce or fully eliminate routine waste, while at the same time providing a detailed audit trail of transactions for efficient re-ordering. This enables both sides of the equation to be satisfied. Cost and wastage is controlled, but staff safety is not jeopardised. The savings to be achieved from this approach can be significant, and there is also scope for profit if desired depending on the pricing used.
A wide range of payment based PPE vending solutions are available from Intelligent Vending T/a Intelligent Wholesale. These can be fitted with a selection of different payment systems to suit your organisational requirements.
Different payment options include:
*Cash: coin & banknote acceptance
*Contactless & NFC: contactless card or mobile payment for lower value transactions
*Chip & PIN: chip & pin card payment for high value transactions
*Receipt printer: printed VAT receipts for efficient business accounting
Use of our PPE payment solution firmly puts the onus back to the contractors, who would have a choice of:
1) returning to their own offices to pick up the correct PPE
2) visiting a local trade PPE supplier or retail outlet
3) or paying for their PPE from the vending solution to gain instant access to site
It is clear that option 3 is likely to be the most efficient and straightforward for the site manager and could save significant costs over a contract period. It can also be used as a profit generator if required.
Strict health and safety regulations mean that in a typical workplace, trade show or construction site, most companies play safe by providing free or even unsupervised access to consumables for third party contractors (e.g. high-vis vests, gloves, goggles, ear protection etc). The introduction of a payment PPE vending machine is a straightforward and cost effective way to address this problem.
