Safety has always been a pressing issue in the workplace. The COVID-19 pandemic has made a lot of people more conscious of health and safety considerations, but certain professions – from mining to medical – have always required the use of personal protective equipment. While vending machines are most often used for stocking snacks, they can also be utilised for important equipment such as hard hats, face masks, goggles, gloves and more.

With Vending First’s PPE vending machines, you can ensure that all staff members have access to necessary equipment any time of the day or night. We have reliable PPE vending machines capable of dispensing a variety of equipment, as well as technology that keeps track of your inventory.

You don’t have to be physically present to keep your company’s operations running smoothly. With our PPE vending machines, your staff need never be caught out without the right protection again.


PPE vending machines (also known as safety stations) can be placed around the workplace in whichever locations you prefer.

Your staff can simply use whatever method is most convenient for you, whether it’s tapping their ID card or entering a unique employee number, in order to access safety goods. Because these machines effectively function on their own with no need for staff or management present, they’re ideal for remote and night shift workers as well as busy workplaces in general.

These machines are easy-to-use, reliable, efficient and have a number of benefits for your business, including heightened security, less chance of equipment loss and minimal clutter from stocking tools onsite.

PPE vending machines can dispense a wide range of safety and protection equipment to staff. You can stock them with whatever goods most effectively ensure your employee’s safety.

Only need a machine for the short-term?

Vending First vending machines are available for hire, meaning there’s no need to commit to one for longer than necessary. Contact us ASAP so we can work out a hiring plan for your business.


Perhaps you already have a very clear idea of why you need a PPE vending machine for your business. But just in case you need some convincing, here are some of the benefits these machines can bring:

Increases staff efficiency

For staff, it makes the process of accessing necessary equipment incredibly easy, allowing them to get back to work quicker.

Increases staff accountability

With the stock safeguarded in the machine and accounted for, workers only take what they need. No need to worry about goods unexpectedly going missing.

Better security

There are some tools that staff members need certain training or clearance to access. Our vending machines make it easy to restrict those pieces of equipment to only those who have the qualifications to access them.

Safety and hygiene

The machines will be kept clean and workers who use them won’t have to come in contact with another person, reducing the risk of disease spreading during these anxious times.
