The origins of Oxford Safety Components

Oxford Safety was founded in 2000 by brothers John and David Black after years of running a successful carpentry business.

With a combined 30 years of experience and over 100 employees, we were frustrated by the lack of quality safety equipment for our staff when working with large contractors.

When working on Truss roofs, we knew our team deserved to work safely without unnecessary hazards and fall risks. Health and Safety are important to us and, combined with our competency, contributed to our business's success and reputation. Safety, productivity and innovation are at the heart of what we do.

Oxford Safety was born from a desire to safeguard valued workers from injury

An estimated 19% of injuries sustained in construction every year are a result of working at height. We knew we had the skills and experience to produce innovative fall prevention safety systems solutions that were adaptable for any industry.

This dedication to the safety of our employees inspired us to develop our patented Trellis System – a key feature of our products. In 2001 we launched the STS Mat (CoverSafe), and our range of products for working at a height have continued to expand.

Oxford Safety now design, sell, hire and install innovative fall prevention safety systems, servicing the Construction, Automotive, Facilities, Utilities, Solar and Pest Control industries to ensure appropriate equipment for working at heights.
