Toughtags are also being used for various commercial applications including as part of general monitoring and labelling systems and to fulfill health and safety legislative requirements, eg for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
When equipment is used for commercial, and even non-commercial professional purposes there is a ‘duty of care’ to make sure that the equipment is fit for its purpose, and that it is in full, good working order. In the UK there are various pieces of legislation that apply to these areas. Legislation requires the equipment is checked regularly by a competent person to make sure that the equipment being used is still in good working order.
Most of our commercial and industrial and commercial clients use Toughtags as part of this process, to identify specific equipment and evidence that it has been checked by a competent person in accordance with relevant legislation. Toughtags are currently being used by clients to conform to legislation including the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER), The Lifting Operations and Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), Work at Height Regulations 2005 (and UK amendment 2007), Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 and The Activity Centres (Young Person’s Safety) Act 1995 (More information available in FAQs).
Existing commercial clients include small, medium and large organisations. We regularly post Toughtags to customers outside of the UK including to most of Europe, Canada and the USA and also post Toughtags to clients in Chile, Argentina, Hong Kong, Australia and even to New Caledonia in the middle of the South Pacific! Our single largest order to date has been an order for 52,000 Toughtags (all uniquely sequenced) for the Joint Services Mountaineering Trust. Other regular clients include the Fire and Rescue Services and the Environment Agency. Medium size clients include many indoor climbing walls and other adventurous activity providers and small clients including sole traders who just want to correctly manage their PPE equipment.
