Unwrap the Gift of Safety this Holiday Season

Unwrap the Gift of Safety this Holiday Season

D.E. Gemmill’s Traffic Control and Safety Products Division is preparing for the approaching holiday season. As we reflect, embrace, and look forward to the holiday season, we can all agree the greatest and most precious gift of all is that of life itself. Therefore, we should ensure and value this wonderful life in which we live and treat our safety and health as a priority and essential in everything that we do. 

Check out some of our extensive products below selected to highlight the best safety and PPE gift ideas to consider for the upcoming holiday season. D.E. Gemmill’s Traffic Control and Safety Product Division is sure to have the perfect gift for everyone on your gift list!

The Importance of Safety Apparel Gifts

Safety and health are not always at the top of everyone’s priority list and sometimes do not get the full attention they deserve. The holiday season is the season of gift-giving. This means there’s no better opportunity to provide yourself or your loved ones with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), safety gear and workwear. These practical and functional gifts will help keep you and your loved ones safe while working around the house, enjoying your hobbies, or at work.

People oftentimes neglect to purchase themselves proper safety gear, such as eye or hearing protection, personal safety lights, safety vests and workwear, work gloves or a new hard hat.  Whether it’s a lack of time or failure to realize the importance of safety gear, investing in your safety and health should be a priority. Safety is personal and it’s the reason we’re able to gather and make memories with the ones we love. What better way to show family and friends you care about them than giving a gift that helps to keep them safe and could benefit their health and well-being?

Craig Adams, Inc. has used D.E. Gemmill exclusively for our Line Painting and Signage needs since the 90’s.  We have always been very pleased with the quality of work performed, jobs completed in a timely fashion, and at competitive prices, on all size projects.  A great company to do business with!

— B. Keller , General Manager    , W. Craig Adams Inc

It has always been a positive experience working with D.E. Gemmill. It all starts in the estimating department where I can always count on receiving a proposal that is accurate and thorough. Then we have the tough task of scheduling on tight time frame jobs where Cary and Dave always seem to work us in when we need it. The field guys always do their best to bring to our attention possible conflicts that could present problems if they notice something that isn’t quite right.

I would recommend D.E. Gemmill’s services for anyone looking to have professional and quality workmanship on their projects.

— W. Stevens , Project Manager , Mainline Excavating

We wanted to send you a thank you for the great job. The men working were very good and completed their job very professionally. I really like when you have a great team to work with. Again thank you and your crew, we would recommend your company to anyone.

— W. Willders , Westminster Place At Stewartstown

I would like to let you know that the line painting crew (Donnie, Albert, Scott, Tom, and Possum) did a fantastic job this week. It was a pleasure to work with them and the respect they showed me while I was riding along. Please pass my appreciation along to them.

Also if you can get Donnie into singing lessons that would be great.  My ears still feel the pain.
