PPE Vending Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can We Use PPE Supplies From Another Supplier?

The Safety Source would obviously like to be your PPE Supplier, but you can purchase your PPE Supplies from another vendor if you purchase the machine or if you're leasing the machine. For those Enterprise customers that are spending $6,000 a month or more per machine we will provide the machine and the software at no charge. We simply require that you spend $6,000 a month in supplies that go into the machine from the Safety Source. 

Can I Set Vending Limits For My Employees?

The vending software allows you to set vending limits and restrictions for each department or as granule as each employee. For example, you can set limits so each employee can only vend 1 pair of safety glasses every day or week. Or you can restrict certain items to specific departments, so employees that work in a cold storage area are the only employees who have access to cold weather gloves. 

What Kind Of PPE Supplies Can Go Into The Vending Machine?

Typically you'll want to dispense high volume consumable items like safety glasses, gloves, sleeves, and vests. We've also have customers that vend earplugs, ear muffs, and even lens wipes. We also have customers that vend industrial items like paint markers, small hammers and chisels. So if your consumption is starting to get out of control, PPE Vending may be a valid option for you.

Who Is Responsible For Repairs?

If the machine has been vandalized or damaged the machine that is not regular wear and tear, the customer is going to be responsible for the repair of those damages. If it's just typical wear and tear, like a motor goes out, there is a 36 month warranty on parts. And the replacement parts will be shipped to the customer. 

What Happens If The Power Or Internet Goes Out?

If the power goes out, the machine will not operate since the Vending Machine needs a power source. If the machine goes offline or loses internet connection, the vending machine will store the transactions in it's memory banks until internet connection is restored. 

Will The Vending Machine Have Problems Vending My PPE Supplies?

We will test vend every item to ensure there are no issues dispensing. We will also setup a planogram that shows which location each item will vend from on the vending machine. For large item's that do not fit in a standard vending machine, we recommend utilizing one of our locker style vending options, that are designed for oversized items.

Is Training Included?

We will provide 20-30 minutes of virtual training and we can provide additional training as well. We will be training the administrator of your company, showing them how to add and remove employees from the system, as well as implementing any employee restrictions.
