My staff are concerned that their stab vests are “too heavy”, what should I say?

It’s best to look at the overall picture. Only Home Office certified armour ensures proper protection, and technology can’t yet produce Home Office certified body armour that’s as thin and lightweight as normal clothing. If you research the lightest weight Home Office certified armour (with syringe and blunt trauma protection, if required), as well as considering other comfort factors such as armour flexibility and heat and moisture management, you’ll be doing everything you can to ensure your staffs comfort – without jeopardising their safety.
