    As I have noticed from the recent meet and more generally, it seems that members of the forum and team galactic especially, are more and more increasingly pushing/driving forward the safety aspect of firing, and how VERY important IT IS indeed, to wear ppe at all times when setting off cat3 displays of fireworks privately and publicly.

    With this in mind (and bearing in mind the eye injury that happened on the sunday of the may meet;at the very least basic eye protection should have been worn by the lads while firing), I think it would be good for galacticfireworks to emphasise and encourage this sensible step/good set of safety habit(s) by selling the necessary protective flame retardant overalls in all sizes along with gloves and necessary lumberjack hardhats with built in eardefenders/mesh visors (as well as the men shun firework safety glasses) in the retail stores and online under a section 'protective equipment/clothing'.

    Firers' ppe would be available as a complete firework displayers safety kit compromising flame retardant overalls/lumberjack helmet/gloves for a fixed price (say £50 for example), and this kit could be provided free of charge with bigger display kits and/or very large firework orders (and you would specify online or when you come instore what size flame retardant overalls you wanted in your kit:confused:/m/l/xl/xxl etc).

    If it encourages good safety practice when displaying and reduces the chances of serious mishap/accidents to firers, then it will be worth it. As the old maxim goes "Better safe than sorry!"

    Sir Anthony :sparkler:, this is a good idea, but this is a firework shop, do you know how much it would cost to keep all the different sizes of overalls in the galactic shops, I would just tell people to look on ebay for the best deals. :)

    It is a good idea, but agree with Bandit.
    PPE is readily available at most big DIY chains & online, at prices that Galactic could not compete with.
    There is a full section on the Galactic website covering PPE, healthy & safety.
