Why High-Quality PPE Is More Cost-Effective

When purchasing safety gear and PPE, don’t be tempted to base your decision purely on price. While it may be nice to save a few bucks in the interim, the result of cheaply made and designed PPE can cost you a lot more in the long run.

Higher quality PPE has better design, materials and fit

Quality PPE may be a little more expensive, but you can be sure that the product you are buying has the latest technology, design and quality fabrics. All of them are designed to ensure your safety and meet the required safety standards. In addition, high-quality apparel provides a great fit, freedom of movement and comfort.

Cheap PPE is at risk

Cheaply made PPE does not provide the same protection and can put you at risk of serious injury, taking you out of work for long periods of time, and even causing lifelong damage. They are not certified to any standards, feature outdated fabrics and designs, and do not protect against workplace hazards.

High quality PPE is worth more in the long run

You’ll also find that high-quality PPE lasts longer and is much more wear-resistant than cheaper options that need to be replaced regularly.

As an example, consider Elliott’s Big Red Welding Gloves, which retail for $12.50. It retails for around $8.00, but you can spend up to 2-3x more per month compared to cheaper, inferior products with limited monthly usage. So, buying quality his PPE, such as Big Red Welding Gloves in this example, would save you up to $126 per month, or $1386 per year (based on 11 months of service).

Comparing the cost of high-quality PPE and low-quality PPE

This shows that you shouldn’t always judge a book by its cover. Because cheap, poor quality products can save you a few bucks in the short term. However, in the long run, buying a quality product will not only give you better protection from serious injury, but it will also pay off financially.

So when choosing the right PPE, remember to take into account the safety and protection it provides, the suitability of your equipment to ensure full range of motion, and consider the long-term cost of your investment. please
