CHICAGO - Grainger, a leading distributor of facilities maintenance supplies, has introduced a new occupational health and safety catalog featuring a recently doubled safety offering including more safety footwear, clothing, and training and reference materials, and organized by key safety issues and Occupational Safety & Heath Administration (OSHA) standards, making it easier for customers to remain in compliance and find the right solution for their safety-related needs. The catalog, also offered in print format, is available online at www.grainger.com/safetyinfo.

According to Grainger, businesses are increasing efforts to prevent accidents and injuries while also working to ensure compliance as OSHA increases its focus on safety enforcement and regulation under the new administration. The National Safety Council reports that the average lost-time injury costs nearly $30,000. Using proper safety supplies can reduce and prevent the chance of workplace accidents, ultimately impacting a company’s bottom line.

“While companies make an honest effort to comply with OSHA regulations, our customers tell us that it isn’t always easy to keep things up to date,” said Deb Oler, vice president, Grainger [Industrial Supply] Brand. “As the largest distributor of safety supplies, Grainger provides the expertise, resources, and products needed to help businesses and institutions maintain regulatory compliance, reduce accident and injury rates, and decrease operating costs.”

In addition to using the new catalog, customers can also stay current on the latest trends in safety through the company’s free “On the Job” webinars that feature third-party industry experts speaking on a variety of safety topics including arc flash, lockout/tagout, and fall protection. The webinar schedule and archives can be accessed at www.grainger.com/onthejob.
