For companies and individuals returning to work in the post-Covid-19 era, it is absolutely essential to operate in a manner that protects employees, clients and the general public. It is not business as usual. Act like a safety company that happens to be in the landscape profession. Below is list of suppliers of PPE and safety products. Continue to check back here often as the list is constantly updated.

LO's Covid-19 Task Force urges horticulture businesses to not outfit employees with medical-grade PPE, so that equipment is available for health professionals.

All contractors should make all product SDS Sheets available to all staff, train and communicate any hazards and risks and use accordingly​.
