The Betty Mills Company ( has strengthened its position as the leading online retailer of personal safety products by bringing the Kimberly-Clark Professional KleenGuard Brand of comfortable, high-quality, head-to-toe safety apparel and eye protection to the Betty Mills customer.


In the modern industrial environment it is more important than ever to make sure employees have the right safety equipment in place. Purchasing safety products helps protect the health and safety of your employees, thus encouraging employee loyalty and increasing productivity. In addition, safety is not only good for business but it can also help a company avoid costly legal bills and establish a positive safety reputation.


According to the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), since 1970, 75,000 lives have been saved and millions of injuries prevented through effective occupational safety and health management systems. In addition, lost productivity from workplace injuries and illnesses costs companies $60 billion each year. As the OSHA handbook explains, employers are required to protect their employees from workplace hazards such as machines, work procedures and hazardous substances that can cause injury. While the preferred method for avoiding these risks is engineering controls, OSHA suggests that employers also purchase personal protective equipment such as gloves, coveralls, helmets and safety glasses to protect their employees.


To help small and medium sized companies enhance workplace safety, The Betty Mills Company, one of America's leading online suppliers of cleaning, facility, and outdoor products and Kimberly-Clark Professional, a global leader with such brands as KleenGuard, Kimtech, Scott, Kleenex and WypAll, have joined forces to offer a wide variety of personal safety products, including gloves, protective apparel and eye protection.


“Investing in workplace safety provides meaningful benefits for manufacturers,” said David Schulhof, co-president of Betty Mills. “A $5 pair of safety glasses can prevent an eye injury that would cost a company hundreds of thousands of dollars. As always, Betty Mills is bringing the highest-quality safety products to its customers. Kimberly-Clark Professional products have long been recognized for their quality and reliability. Its newest safety products reflect the same quality and care. We are proud to partner with Kimberly-Clark Professional to bring the best safety products to manufacturers in order to encourage that an injury-free and illness-free workplace becomes a reality.”


“At Kimberly-Clark Professional, safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Peter Leahy, customer marketing manager for Kimberly-Clark Professional. “As a company, we make a commitment to the safety and health of our most important asset, our employees, every day. Our safety product line reflects this commitment. We are excited to team with Betty Mills to further strengthen our online presence in personal safety.”
