Standox is backing the results of a new survey by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) which reveals some paint sprayers are still putting their long-term health at risk. Jodie Henly, Standox Brand Marketing Specialist added: “We feel very strongly that everyone in the industry needs to take all reasonable steps to preserve their health and we have made available a suite of tools to help bodyshops achieve this.”
The Standox health and safety tools include a special DVD, a downloadable Standothek safety brochure and a dedicated poster. “Safety, Health and the Environment (SHE) are essential to everything we do at Standox. In particular our SHE Mission Security Training DVD demonstrates safe practice in the bodyshop situations that operatives face every day,” explained Jodie.
In addition to the video, the Standothek brochure Helpful Tips for your Health and Safety and an allied poster give instant reference to help safer working. To help busy bodyshops the Standothek brochure is available for instant download from www.standox.co.uk/health, along with a trailer of the “Mission Security” DVD.
As well as these helpful materials, Standox includes full health and safety advice in all training courses held at the Standox Training Centre in Stevenage, as well as giving invaluable advice through its local field force. Jodie added: “Standox supports all efforts to increase health awareness in the industry.”
