We have over 20 Safety Specialists throughout New Zealand, two distribution centres in Hamilton and Christchurch and a showroom in Auckland. We have a large existing national customer base which stretches from the far North to the deep South.

Safety and Apparel Ltd is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment we operate in and in providing a safe and healthy environment for all employees and visitors to our branches. An important part of our business success has been the effective and consistent implementation of our Environmental Management System. This holds us to a high level of corporate responsibility by ensuring we are operating sustainably.

Specialists in Safety


The safety industry is constantly evolving with new regulations and legislation being introduced and new technology regularly being developed and brought to the market. To ensure we keep ahead of this, our Safety Specialist team is continually upskilled with the latest industry training, so we can provide our customers with the best advice and fit for purpose recommendations for their PPE & PPC choices, no matter what industry they work in.


Since commencing operation, the team at Safety and Apparel Ltd have developed strong relationships with internationally recognised manufacturers and suppliers. Just like us, our suppliers understand the importance of health and safety, and the importance of selecting the correct PPE/PPC for your working environment and application. In conjunction with our Safety Specialist’s our suppliers can provide customers with on-site training, education seminars and toolbox training as required. This ensures our customers are using their safety equipment correctly, ensuring they are protected in the best way possible.


Our team is trained to provide in-house and on-site porta count respirator fit testing, height safety equipment servicing testing, ear attenuation testing, and portable gas detection equipment calibration and servicing.
