Finding products on the website

How do I search for products on the website?

We have provided a search box at the top of the website. Enter the product name or product code if you have it to hand into the search field and we'll display the closest matches. Don't worry if you don't know the exact product name, our search will find you products that closely match the words you've used.

If you want to talk to a Safetyshop representative, you can call us on 0800 13 23 23, chat to us online using Live Chat, email us at and we'll be happy to answer your questions.

How can I shop quickly using just product codes?

If you want to purchase multiple items quickly and have your catalogue or list of product codes to hand, we suggest you use our 'Quick Order' page. Simply add your product codes and quantities and the 'Quick Order' will check these against our system to validate that your codes are correct, confirming each product name for you. One simple click allows you to add all these products to your basket and checkout.

Browsing through our product range

There are many ways of finding the products you're looking for from our range of over 30,000 products on the Safetyshop website. The browse navigation is just one of them. You'll find this in the left-hand column on the homepage underneath the 'Start Shopping' links. This navigation presents all the categories of products we sell online. Clicking any of these links will take you to the start of a category (or department) such as Safety Signs, where from there you can continue to use the left-hand navigation links to drill down into specific product lists, and finally to a product detail page.

Using the Sitemap

In the footer on every page you'll find a link to 'SiteMap'. Clicking this link will present you with a list of links to all the main pages on the website, including the product groups or categories. If you can't find what you're looking for via the other methods provided on the website (e.g. navigation and search) or want a quick overview then 'SiteMap' is a great place to start.

What are the WEEE Regulations?

The WEEE regulations means that as a producer of "WEEE" Safetyshop has an obligation to accept back from customers any electrical and electronic equipment we have put onto the market since 13th August 2005.

All electrical and electronic equipment put onto the market after this date should, by law, be marked with the wheelie bin logo with a line underneath it. As required by law, Brady UK (Safetyshop is a division of Brady UK) has registered under one of the approved compliance schemes. The scheme we are part of is run by Valpak. As such we are obligated to make available to our customers our WEEE Producer Number to prove our registration.

Our WEEE Producer Number is: WEE/BE00448Y and for batteries BPRNOO239

What does this mean in terms of products?

This means that should a customer have a product purchased from Safetyshop which they need to dispose of and they have purchased since 13th of August 2005, then they can send it back to Safetyshop where we will dispose of it according to the new directive.

Our website contains an online form which customers are required to complete in order to be issued with a WEEE returns number to action the return. This will enable us to trace and measure the amount of WEEE we take back as required by the law. Once the form is completed and submitted to Safetyshop we will contact you to advise you of your returns number and how to return the product. Batteries are not supposed to be sent back via post.

What about electronic and electrical equipment sold before 13th of August 2005?

We are only obligated to take back electronic and electrical equipment put onto the market before 13th August 2005 (also known as "Historic WEEE") if it is being replaced by a like-for-like product. For example, a customer replacing their old office fan with a new office fan Safetyshop would accept back the old fan. Furthermore, if "WEEE" or "Historic WEEE" is a non Safetyshop item (e.g. an office fan made by a competitor), and is being replaced by a Safetyshop fan, then we may also take back the old fan.

Will there be any additional charges for this implementaion of WEEE?

No - Safetyshop will not be making additional charges for this.
