Corporate Profiles: Ansell


Ansell is a leading global provider of protection solutions. We design, develop and manufacture a wide range of protection solutions that meet the ever-changing needs and demands of markets and industries. Protection is our primary concern, as workplace injuries and illnesses such as burns, lacerations, cuts, fractures and chemical reactions affect millions of workers globally every year.

Beside severe effects on the individual, injuries can also create serious drawbacks for a company’s business performance. The associated direct costs of an injury range from medical expenses to rehabilitation costs and workers’ compensation, whereas indirect costs are caused by replacement workers, accident investigation, productivity loss and demotivation of workers. This creates a need for compliance, consolidation and simplification of safety programs, challenging companies to find new ways to reduce personal protective equipment costs without sacrificing worker safety.

Ansell Guardian® is our proprietary service to help companies select the right PPE solutions to improve their safety, productivity and cost performance. As an industry pioneer with the most advanced and proprietary technology and analytics, we have gained our experience in more than 12,000 assessments conducted since 2010, and we operate globally in more than 55 countries.

Through an in-depth analysis of a company’s safety needs, workplace demands, worker challenges and current PPE, we help customers improve worker safety and ensure compliance with safety regulations, as well as find the right PPE solutions that allow for increased efficiency, better performance and improved productivity.
