Safety Information

PRODUCT INFO

Our products include safety glasses and goggles, safety helmets and accessories, ear protection, protective gloves and footwear, winter gloves & skicaps, dust masks & respirators, rainwear, aprons & sleeves, coveralls, disposable items and related safety clothing products. Most of the products we carry are manufactured by leading factories in Asia and the USA. Recognizing the importance of quality for safety-related items, we continuously work with our suppliers to ensure that we deliver the best quality products at the lowest possible prices for our customers.

We also handle special requests and offer a variety of other products with quantity orders. Contact us to see if we can provide the items you're looking for.

We can arrange to have your labels or logo affixed for large orders for an additional charge.

We believe that safety products should perform the function they are intended to perform; they should offer safety protection for their users. Anyone can sell a pair of safety glasses or a pair of gloves, but not all of these products are created equal. Lower prices sometimes means lower quality products, which may provide inadequate protection. In the short-term, they may seem cheaper, but when you add up the costs of repeat purchases for worn-out items and the impact of worker injuries of lowered productivity, it often doesn't make sense to buy items that don't hold up to use. At Beedo International, we don't look to build our sales through constant repeat sales of products that don't last; we focus on delivering high quality products that reach more and more customers through positive word of mouth.

ANSI 107 is the standard for High Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear. ANSI 107 has different class levels for apparel for applicability to different work environments and the commensurate need for greater or less visibility. Conditions such as traffic speed, closeness to traffic, attentiveness of wearer to traffic, weather and general visibility dictate the the degree of apparel visibility required. Visibility of a piece of apparel is affected by the amount of fluorescent background material in the garment, and the width and placement of the reflective stripes. The higher the class number, the greater the visibility of the garment. Class 1 is the basic vest, often worn in parking lots, Class 2 is the most common vest, and Class 3 is for garments with sleeves that include reflective stripes. Class E is the standard for high visibility pants. ANSI 107-2004 was updated in 2010 to require vertical reflective stripes on Class 1 and 2 apparel. (Previously, horizontal striping was sufficient.) Effective November 24, 2008, a new law requires all workers on Federal highways to wear ANSI Class 2 or Class 3 high visibility clothing (Federal Highway Administration 23 CFR Part 634).

ANSI 207 is the standard for High Visibility Public Safety Vests, and was created for public safety personnel who need shorter vests to be able to access tools, etc. on their belts, and to allow different colored panels to be employed to designate the type of public safety employee wearing the vest. For example, red is for fire personnel, green is for EMS, blue is for police, etc. Because there is much less fluorescent fabric on these vests than ANSI 107 vests, ANSI 207 vests more or less fall between the requirements of ANSI 107 Class 1 and Class 2.
