About ESF

The reference for Personal Protective Equipement in Europe. The European Safety Federation is a non-profit and a non subsidised organisation which groups (the national associations of) manufacturers, importers and distributors of Personal Protective Equipment in Europe. As such, ESF is recognised by the European authorities and stakeholders. As each of the 511 million EU citizens (be it as employee, as self-employed or in his/her free time) uses Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect him/her against risks for his/her health or safety, the ESF members have an essential role in the protection of the population.
