5 essentials to managing PPE and workwear requirements

Protecting staff who work at airports is a primary concern of health and safety procurement staff. Ensuring that they are always equipped with the right PPE and workwear is paramount. When it comes to managing the procurement of items that staff need to do their jobs safely, some factors make life easier for those responsible.

  1. Easy ordering

    If the process of ordering PPE and workwear is tricky, it forms a barrier to ensuring the workforce is protected. Ordering with Contego Aviation is easy through our online shop, where you can easily locate aviation clothing and PPE. As a repeat or larger client, you’ll have access to our Online Management Portal where permitted employees can re-order and track their items easily.

    The Portal also allows individuals to choose their uniform preferences from pre-selected lists. They can choose their sizes and individual PPE preferences. This delegation helps overcome a key pain point for Health and Safety staff, that of managing multiple individual requirements.

  2. Straightforward delivery and distribution

    Aviation businesses often have staff scattered throughout the airport. Distributing uniforms and PPE to the right people can pose a logistical challenge. Contego Aviation’s Man-Pack service means that items are labelled with individuals’ names and departments before shipping. On arrival at the airport, items can be quickly and easily distributed to staff members.

  3. Clear budget management

    Our Online Management Portal provides total spending transparency. It makes it easy to see who is ordering what, and how much is being spent. Managers can set spending limits and order level restrictions, along with authorisations and approval processes. These parameters allow procurement managers to budget for workwear and PPE accurately and inform them where savings could be made.

  4. Quick customisation

    Uniforms with logos help identify your staff to others, whether it’s their colleagues, others working airside, or the general public. Other customisation, perhaps identifying job roles, are often found on airside uniforms too. Contego Aviation offers an in-house embroidering and heatseal customisation service. Once designed and approved, the designs are available through the Online Management Portal, making re-ordering quick and easy.

  5. Easy usage tracking

    Contego Aviation’s Online Management Portal allows procurement staff to track employees’ use of items. If an employee is regularly re-ordering items, it can help with forecasting supply chain management, and avoid delays in the right equipment being available. It also helps if employees need advice on how to improve the longevity of their uniform and PPE and reduce re-ordering rates.
