Are you looking for your next sales job? If so, have you considered working in the safety equipment field? There are a variety of openings in safety equipment sales that fit your skills and interests. Working in the field can promote career growth.

Discover three reasons why you should find a job selling safety equipment this year.

1. Innovation in Safety Equipment Production Is Leading to Greater Use

Research is being conducted to improve the comfort, fit, and durability of safety equipment. Improvements in key areas such as these are leading to greater use of the equipment. This provides greater opportunities to sell the equipment.

The future of safety equipment is being controlled by the changing needs of the customers. Conducting end-user research aids in product development. The better production companies understand what workers need from their safety equipment, the more effectively the equipment can be produced.

2. Changing OSHA Regulations Are Increasing Safety Equipment Use

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) continues to enhance its laws and regulations to improve safety in the workplace. This increases the need for companies to purchase safety equipment. It also provides additional opportunities to provide the equipment.

Safety gloves, glasses, and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, coveralls, vests, and full body suits are among the equipment required to be worn while performing specific types of work. The equipment helps minimize exposure to hazards that can cause workplace injuries and illnesses.

3. Industries That Require Safety Equipment Are Expanding

The need for hand protection to reduce the risks associated with corrosive chemicals, warm objects, and heavy-duty equipment continues to grow. This is especially true for the construction, food processing, oil & gas, healthcare, and metal fabrication.

Clothing designed for heat, flame, mechanical, or chemical protection is increasing in demand. The same is true for protective footwear, especially in work environments that may be impacted by chainsaws, electric shock, or metatarsal issues.

Respiratory protective equipment that protects against hazardous gases and vapors, particulates, chemical agents, radiological particles, and biological contaminants is in high demand. The demand for unpowered respirators is especially high for the petrochemical, mining, cement, construction, coal, fertilizers, and oil & gas sectors. All of these industries provide opportunities to distribute the equipment.
