Personal protective equipment (PPE)

From a protective helmet for production processes to operating shoes in a hospital or hair nets in the food processing industry, for all our customer groups, there are safety, hygiene and other standards that apply to the provision of personal protective equipment and clothing.

As a system provider, we regard the PPE product area as an important strategic pillar and have positioned ourselves accordingly.

Through intensive training and the use of specialists, we can now offer you, our customers, comprehensive consultancy packages:

  • in product management
  • in procurement
  • in specialist consultancy
  • at headquarters - and in the regions

Since the integration of the well-known occupational health specialist Jesse in our company group in 2015, we have a competence centre offering us long-term support in the further qualification of our PPE specialists and provision with technical solutions.

In the processing industry, PPE plays an important role.
Most major industrial customers are listed on the stock exchange. They are subject to strong growth pressure. Effective cost management can make an important contribution to improving results.

With our supplementary PPE range, we support you as our customers in achieving your optimisation goals.

With our expertise PSA, we were able to significantly enhance our position as supply partner to the industry.
Many customers have realized that they save process costs by purchasing multiple product areas through one vendor such as igefa.


Consultancy and training

We have good contacts to PPE manufacturers, and together with them, we organise safety and product training for our customers.

The level of attendance of these events, which are often held at an igefa location or on the customer’s premises, is excellent.

The events can focus on the right way of handling chemicals and safety gloves, or current protective helmet training events, for example, in which new functions are presented and demonstrated.

PSA für alle Branchen PPE is relevant to all industries

Personal protective equipment is more than just protective suits or helmets for the processing industry.

In other sectors, too, these products have an important role to play.

PPE is particularly important in healthcare, since both patients and staff must be protected.

In view of multi-resistant germs or viruses, for example, protection is becoming ever more important, and can even be a competitive advantage for the institutions.

The PPE products for the healthcare sector include:

  • Head and mouth protection
  • Protective gloves
  • OP shoes
  • Standardised professional clothing for care workers and much more


Advice on and upgrading of work clothing

Advice on work clothing and its upgrading offers significant opportunities across different sectors for customers to generate added value.

We provide training for specialists in-house, who can provide advice on professional clothing as a focal area.

In the hotel, gastronomy and catering (HoReCa) industries in particular, there is a great need of information, since within this sector, there are many different professional groups, and as a result, very different requirements.

Branding and upgrading are also of interest to building cleaners. Here, igefa offers smaller and medium-sized companies individual solutions even with smaller purchase quantities.

PPE items such as fall protection and professional clothing are becoming more important among building cleaning companies overall, and are now an elementary component of many tenders.
