Safety solutions for the
construction industry

Accidents, illness, and exposure to hazards are extremely common within the construction sector. Globus offers a range of sustainable and reliable safety solutions, designed to meet all requirements, even in the most demanding environments.

Construction sites are home to several high-risk hazards including heights, electricity, sharp objects, and harmful dust exposure, as well as excessive noise due to heavy machinery, equipment, and power tools. Prolonged exposure to high noise levels can result in hearing loss and other auditory problems.

Wearing the appropriate PPE for each task is essential in reducing workplace accidents and long-term work-related illnesses.

In order to be protective, the PPE needs to be well-fitting, and comfortable whatever the size, shape, or gender of the wearer.

If PPE is ill-fitting or too large, employees are less likely to wear it, impacting their safety.

Our range of construction-focused PPE ensures optimum protection
for all wearers, with solutions in smaller sizes and adjustable options.

Safety remains at our core, but through innovation and technology, we are finding new ways to reduce the environmental impact and enhance sustainability without sacrificing quality.

Our construction range includes eco-friendly alternatives made from recycled plastic bottles.

Respiratory Protection


Respiratory protection in the construction industry is crucial for preventing inhalation of hazardous particles like silica dust, asbestos, and chemical vapours from activities such as cutting concrete, demolition, and painting. Using appropriate Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE), like masks and respirators, helps protect workers' health. Employers must assess hazards, provide the right RPE, and ensure proper training and fit-testing, adhering to regulatory standards.

We offer both reusable and disposable RPE to protect construction workers. Reusable RPE, designed for long-term use, features replaceable filters and is suitable for environments with regular exposure to hazardous substances. Disposable RPE is lower in cost, and ideal for short-term use.
