Dimensions granted coveted Registered Safety Supplier Scheme membership


imensions has increased its commitment towards being a responsible PPE supplier with admittance onto the British Safety

Industry Federationʼs (BSIF) Registered Safety Supplier Scheme.

The BSIF has created the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme (RSSS) whereby companies displaying the schemeʼs logo have signed a binding declaration that the safety equipment they offer meets the appropriate standards, fully complies with the PPE regulations and is appropriately CE marked.

Hayley Brooks, managing director of Dimensions, said: “Since becoming members of the BSIF, we have been working towards being registered as a safety supplier on the scheme. “We are delighted that we are now officially on the RSSS register, by displaying the RSSS shield we are illustrating our credibility, trustworthiness and expertise in safety supply.”

The scheme sets Dimensions apart, as a wave of non-approved product is on the increase in the UK, contravening the very safety legislations that the RSSS register has put in place. Another concerning factor that is becoming more common, is counterfeit goods, which in turn do not perform as they should, putting lives at risk.
