Your Personal Safety

Choosing equipment

Before you buy or hire equipment:

  • Do not commit to choosing equipment until you have checked all of the options and suppliers.
  • Try before you buy, ask for a demonstration or trial.
  • Check the company's policy on returning equipment and warrantees.
