RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, offers an extensive range of products, selection tools and support materials that enable machine and plant safety operators to quickly and easily purchase vital safety equipment.

Latest products available from RS include light curtains from ABB and safety controllers from Pilz, alongside multiple other machine-guarding solutions from many of industry’s leading suppliers. For electrical safety, Dymo labelling machines can be used to address safe codes of practice – saving lives – and passive/active signage, safety mats and test equipment also help address important legislation.

In terms of site security and access control, RS stocks multiple products from Samsung’s class-leading security equipment, including extensive CCTV and display products. For personnel protection, the RS PPE landing page links to practically every product required for head to toe protection, including 3M ear defenders, MAPA gloves, JSP harnesses and CAT footwear.

RS also stocks its own range of safety products, which delivers quality, performance, choice and exceptional value for money. Key products in the RS Pro range include PPE, spill control, access control, emergency lighting, lockouts, tools and a broad range of signage.

To help with selection, the RS online DesignSpark resource provides information and advice, capturing the latest news, solutions and products to ensure top-level safety. This added-value service offers software, 3D models, articles, tools and forum discussions relating to many of the products in the extensive RS safety range.

Safety is no longer seen as a hindrance and effective safety regimens and procedures can be directly related to bottom-line performance as well as having a massive effect on morale and company/product branding. With such a broad range of products, advice and support, RS is in an ideal position to help its customers address even the most demanding safety concerns, setting them on the path to optimal operational performance.
