What SafetyQuip are saying


Connect with SafetyQuip

Workplace safety is not a luxury – it’s the law and SafetyQuip is a market leader in the national B2B distribution of workplace safety products and services.

One Stop Safety Shop

We offer much more than just hard hats and safety boots.

SafetyQuip’s product offering includes a huge range of personal protective equipment, products like protective clothing, respirators, welding masks, cut resistant gloves, height safety harnesses and site safety products.

But I Don’t Have A Background In Safety!

Don’t worry. SafetyQuip’s franchisee training is comprehensive and on-going. It prepares you to approach your customers with confidence. You have direct access to the National Support Team who will provide answers to questions on every aspect of your business – including technical safety advice. You also have 24/7 access to a library of training modules with new modules being added and updated to reflect changes in legislation and trends in the marketplace.

Start Small – Grow Big

Structure your SafetyQuip business using one of our flexible start-up models.

Start affordably with a single fully-stocked Mercedes Sprinter sales van then expand to a permanent base of operations - a trade shop - within 12 months. Or if you have the capabilities, and ambition, you may choose to develop your mobile and trade shop business in tandem.

Whatever start-up model you choose you have the option of further expanding your business within your generous geographic territory by putting more sales vans on the road and/or extending your reach with multiple satellite shops with additional mobile reach around them. And best of all you can do so without paying an additional franchisee fee.

Join The Team That Makes A Real Difference!

SafetyQuip franchisees go to work each day knowing that what they do, the products they sell, and the advice they give may make the difference between a safe outcome in a workplace incident and a sad statistic.

Why us

In The Beginning

The first SafetyQuip opened its doors on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 1992. SafetyQuip’s founder, Gary Shearer, spent the next 10 years developing and perfecting the SafetyQuip business model, building solid relationships with leading manufacturers and wholesalers, and establishing SafetyQuip’s reputation as the business to turn to for expert safety advice, unrivalled customer support and top-brand safety products. By 2002 SafetyQuip was ready to expand with its first franchise in Slacks Creek Brisbane. Since then SafetyQuip has grown to include a national network of 15 branch locations in all mainland states.

The SafetyQuip Franchise Application Process in a Nutshell

Send us an enquiry.
Use the SEEK Business enquiry form on this page

Have a chat with us.
A member of the SafetyQuip Franchise Development Team will give you a call to get a better understanding of the kind of business you’re looking for, to find out a bit more about your goals and expectations with respect to business ownership and to explain more about the SafetyQuip business opportunity.

Read the information pack. Return preliminary documents.
If we each like what we hear during the initial phone interview we’ll send you an information packet. To move to the next stage of enquiry you will need to sign and return a confidentiality agreement, make a fully-refundable expression of interest deposit, and complete an online expression of interest questionnaire.

Meet the team.
We believe it’s very important for you and us to get to know each other in person. Suitable franchisee candidates will meet with SafetyQuip head office staff at the national office in Noosa, Queensland and with the local franchisee at the Sunshine Coast branch. During your 2-day visit we’ll give you in depth information about the operation of a SafetyQuip franchise – information you’ll need to conduct due diligence and obtain advice from your business, legal, and/or financial advisors.

Conduct due diligence.
Franchisee applicants go away from the ‘Discovery Day’ visit with all the information needed to conduct a thorough analysis of the franchise opportunity and make a decision regarding the viability of the business.

Meet with the franchisor at your location.
You spent time with the head office team in Noosa and now the SafetyQuip CEO will return the visit and spend time with you in your location. This is an opportunity for both you and the franchisor to clarify any outstanding issues. By the end of the approval visit you will more than likely have come to a decision about whether or not to join SafetyQuip as a franchisee and, likewise, the franchisor will use the meeting to make a final assessment of your suitability as a SafetyQuip franchise candidate.

Ready. Set. Go!
Congratulations! Upon your appointment as the newest SafetyQuip franchisee we’ll guide you through the franchise start-up process to help you get your business up and running as quickly as possible.
