Safety Mate & Black Dog Institute

Taking action on mental health in mining! Did you know that 20% of Australians will experience symptoms of mental illness each year?

With the mining sector making up about 2% of the national workforce, it’s important to support the mental health and wellbeing of our workers. Safety Mate recognises the magnitude of the issues of mental health in the mining industry, so we’re reaching beyond our customers’ physical safety to support their mental safety too.

Black Dog Institute

Black Dog Institute is a not-for-profit organisation advocating for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental health illnesses. It is dedicated to researching mental health for all ages, and supplies programs, tools, information and services backed up by rigorous experiential research. Safety Mate’s new Black Dog Safety Glove has been launched to send some much-needed funds their way.

Black Dog Safety Glove

The Black Dog Safety Glove is a super lightweight Cut level D glove that offers consistently high quality, excellent cut resistance and touchscreen compatibility.

Features include:

  • Comfort with dexterity for high performance
  • The latest technology for breathability and durability
  • Reinforced thumb and forefinger
  • Touch screen compatibility
  • Oeko-Tex® 100, Sanitized® and dermatologically accredited

For added peace of mind, these gloves already meet the new 2020 Australian glove safety standard too. The new standard (AS/NZS 2161.3:2020) includes tests that better simulate real life conditions to give users a more accurate assessment of a glove’s cut protection and impact resistance. For every pair of our signature new Black Dog Safety Gloves sold, Safety Mate will donate $1 to the Black Dog Institute so they can continue their important work.
