Grow Your Career with a Job in PPE Sales

Are you looking to take a step forward in your sales career? If so, you are in the right place.

Talented sales professionals are in high demand in the personal protective equipment (PPE) industry. This growing field offers exciting opportunities to advance your career in an industry that makes a significant difference in people’s lives.

Discover three reasons why you should move forward in your career with a job in PPE sales.

The Need for PPE Is Ongoing

The use of PPE is especially high for industries such as healthcare, construction, light industrial, and manufacturing. The clothing and accessories help protect against work-related injuries and illnesses. This means there always will be customers who need to purchase PPE.

In many work environments, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires workers to use specific types of PPE. This may include footwear, hard hats, gloves, goggles, respirators, or hearing protection.

The PPE required for a job depends on the risks involved. For instance, a healthcare worker might need to wear a safety gown and safety gloves to protect against contact with blood or other bodily fluids.

OSHA’s Industry Standards Continue to Change

Employers continue to face changing standards to stay in compliance with OSHA regulations. This often involves a business owner conducting a hazard assessment of their workplace to determine the most common hazards that can put workers at risk. The owner must categorize the hazards and create a plan to avoid or prevent injury or illness. Part of the plan typically involves the use of PPE.

OSHA developed additional guidance for employers to classify COVID-19 risks and risk levels. This includes how to prevent transmission of the virus in the workplace. As a result, many employers are providing N95 face masks to increase worker safety. This provides additional opportunities to sell PPE to customers.

Provides Additional Value for Your Customers

Many PPE sales professionals are delivering outcomes along with their products. This may include training customers’ employees on how to use the products to maximize their impact. Adding value for customers enhances brand recognition and customer loyalty. It also helps sales professionals build stronger partnerships with customers. This can lead to increased sales of PPE.
