Bulk Buying Office Health And Safety Equipment: An Easy Way To Save Money

Any smart business owner or office manager knows that the most cost-effective way to buy office equipment and supplies is to buy it in bulk.
At the moment, office managers up and down the country are bulk buying paper and printer supplies, as well as stationery and even tea and coffee for their employees. They order in bulk because it makes economic sense to do so, as many office supplies companies offer discounts for businesses placing large orders. All of these supplies will be needed in the near future, so why not buy it all at once?
Buying health and safety equipment in bulk
The same logic office managers use to keep their stationery cupboards stocked up can also be applied to buying health and safety equipment for the workplace.
Some health and safety equipment involves a one off purchase, such as buying safety signs, whilst other supplies require regular orders. First aid kits are an example of a type of health and safety supply which regularly needs to be topped up. In fact, businesses are required by law to keep fully stocked first aid kits on work premises.
If you buy your first aid or any other supplies in bulk, you can benefit from:
- Cheaper prices overall
- A one-off delivery charge
- Time saved every month from not having to make repeat orders
- Reliable health and safety products
Office managers can also stock up on fire safety signs, equipment and supplies by buying in bulk, enjoying these very same benefits.
PureSafety has found that bulk buying first aid kits and fire supplies most often comes in handy after health and safety audits and assessments have taken place, when businesses discover that they need to update or improve their fire safety provisions. Some business owners dread these inspections, as they often mean spending a fortune on improvements. This doesn’t need to be the case, not if you bulk buy the fire safety supplies you need.
