SMACNAGreaterChicago.org Online Safety Store
Our new source for purchasing safety materials is live! A new safety perk for SMACNA Greater Chicago Members.
As a SMACNA Greater Chicago member, you can now conveniently purchase many of the safety products you need to keep your workers safe at SMACNAGreaterChicago.org.
“Years ago, we had a similar program that made it economical for our contractors to buy safety equipment. It was a small flyer, a sheet you’d fill out to order materials,” said Hank Artlip, SMACNA Greater Chicago board member and president of Artlip & Sons, Inc. in Aurora. “It’s been a few years since we’ve instituted it, but now we’re bringing the concept into the new age where it’s online and much more user-friendly. It’s just another way to add value for our members.”
The online Safety Store has been mobile-optimized, making it convenient for on-the-go members to order products from the field, if necessary. All items — most of which display the SMACNA Greater Chicago logo — are categorized as personal protective equipment (PPE). They are available for members to purchase at a significantly reduced price, and include free shipping. If items are needed sooner than shipping time allows, members also have a pick-up option by visiting the association office.
Currently, the five products listed below are available in several sizes. Each item was carefully selected based on several factors including comfort, design and value.
“We went through a lot of products and a lot of research. We talked to both large and small contractors to get their opinions on products that would be feasible. These consumable items are something we all need. We’re offering good products, and we’re certainly offering good prices. It’s all part of what we consider to be safety, and we’re providing a service to our members.”
