All in a good cause

An Isle of Wight-based factory has risen to the challenge in the fight against COVID-19; cutting scrubs for volunteer seamstresses to stitch together and designing and manufacturing PPE for the NHS.

It’s a major change from this time last year when SeaSafe Systems Ltd, led by MD Jeremy Dale, had just completed the manufacture of 100 lifejackets for a BBC Children in Need event hosted by Chris Evans.

The last few weeks alone has seen SeaSafe help design, manufacture and deliver 200 heavy duty PPE aprons specifically for the Island’s NHS and cut 600 sets of scrubs to be stitched for the Island’s NHS frontline staff.

Whilst this extraordinary activity has been taking place, SeaSafe has continued its support of frontline workers in the maritime industry by keeping its lifejacket servicing department operating during lockdown, helping ensure the safety of local Fire and Ambulance services, and marine police, harbour authorities and pilot authorities across the UK.

SeaSafe is now looking forward to restarting the manufacture of its essential marine safety equipment, used around the world. The introduction of social distancing throughout the factory, use of safety screens between workspaces as well as creating new staff break-out areas are all measures currently being implemented.
