Year Business Established
Year Franchising Commenced
Gary Shearer started the first SafetyQuip on Queensland's Sunshine Coast in 1992. The business grew from a single sales van working from a home garage into a thriving, high-tech safety centre with mobile reach, offering a huge range of the best brands from top suppliers.
Today Gary is still at the helm of SafetyQuip where he's committed to the success of each individual franchisee by ensuring SafetyQuip stays ahead of the curve in Australian best practice, IT, and franchisee support staff.

About the Opportunity
SafetyQuip is actively seeking franchisees for start-up business opportunities in the Tullamarine, Griffith, Wagga Wagga, South Melbourne and Ballarat regions.
No safety industry experience is required. We provide you with comprehensive training and unrivalled support.
Business to Business (B2B) Franchise Model
SafetyQuip’s B2B franchise structure allows you to maintain regular business hours and have weekends and public holidays off. Our primary market is small to medium size businesses – everything from Aviation to Zoos.
The SafetyQuip franchise model is designed for 2-person operation at the start of the business. Current franchisees consist of husband/wife teams, a parent/child team and groups of business partners.
Our safety products include items like workwear, footwear, protective clothing, safety eyewear, protective head gear, respiratory equipment, earmuffs and earplugs, height safety equipment, fire extinguishers, emergency & safety lighting, traffic equipment and signage. The list goes on and on – top brands and suppliers.
Start small…grow big!
We have 3 start-up models to choose from depending on your budget - from a fully-stocked sales van only start to a fully-operational safety centre + sales van start. Further growth opportunity is achieved through multiple sales vans and/or regional satellite shops - without paying an additional franchise fee.
We go to great lengths to be there for you when you need help and have established four primary franchisee-to-franchisor support conduits:
• Telephone - when it’s urgent
• Intranet – available 24/7 - when it’s not immediately pressing
• Remote Terminal Communication – where we can connect to your computer
• National Support Office staff field visits
Existing franchisees have also proved exceptionally willing to help each other.
