Askham Bryan College receive donation from SafeGuard Clothing

Date: 10th January 2019

Askham Bryan College is the latest education institution in the line of many to receive a donation from SafeGuard Clothing.

The leading manufacturer of premium body armour have a donated bullet resistant vest to put a focus on the importance of safety and protecting the lives of law enforcement and military operatives.

In the light of the increasing number of terrorist attacks, urban crime, random assaults and shooting incidents, it’s becoming necessary to educate students at college level on the importance and use of body armour.

To support this need, SafeGuard clothing has made it a mission to improve the education base of institutions and help them offer better practical experience to students enrolled in Public Service courses.

Vital information that can improve safety awareness and survival rates amongst Public Service officials includes knowledge of new materials used in the design of bullet resistant vests, correct size and carrier type selection and fit, and updated NIJ standards.

The donation from the international tactical body armour and safety equipment distributor will be used for demonstrations in the Public Services course of the college. SafeGuard Clothing’s bullet resistant vest will educate students on the working mechanics behind the design and structure of tactical armour.

"We are pleased to assist Askham Bryan College in the improvement of their Public Service course and the donation of one of our bullet proof vests aims to expand on the learning experience of students" says SafeGuard Clothing Communications Manager Thomas Bowman.

"The brand is known for its strong commitment to industry standards and innovative development – something that colleagues partnering with the company will surely benefit from." 

Senior Lecturer in Uniform Public Services at Askham Bryan College Mark Watt's said:

"Both SafeGuard and Askham Bryan College are interested in raising awareness amongst students about industry best practices, safety equipment standards and mechanics.

"Such partnerships are greatly beneficial to our students as they provide access to an industry leader's expertise and technology advancement, enriching their learning experience.

"The use of SafeGuard's bullet proof vest in Askham Bryan College’s Public Service course demonstrates the working mechanics behind staying safe in the line of work that involves daily risks."
