Step_Safe_BobbySearching for step stools or safety steps?  RJ Cox has you covered.  And because we – like many others – know that variety is the spice of life, RJ Cox gives you a wide-range of safety steps and step stools to choose from in our inventory.  Folding, rolling, jumbo, 2-step, 3-step, stainless steel: you’ll wear yourself out just going through the list of RJ Cox step stools and safety steps.

Our Superiorpak Step Safe is a favorite among our customers and is used by a number of businesses like Woolworths, Coles, Liquorland, Bunnings, Drillers World and Target.  What makes these safety steps from Superiorpak so popular?  Well, contrary to popular belief, we can’t read minds.  But we do have a good idea that some of the features like the extra wide base platform, no-slip steps and 200kg maximum weight load carrying capacity help.  Or, it could also be the fact that RJ Cox offers quantity discounts on these Superiorpak Step Safe steps that make them so popular.

We know how organised and efficient many of you are with your space because of the popularity of our line of containers.  That’s why we know customers like you will love our Folding Safety Step Ladders.  Not only do these step ladders fold for easy storage, but they also come in 2-step, 3-step and 4-step sizes.  And don’t mistake these for your ordinary step ladders.  These folding safety step ladders are lightweight, but they are also constructed from heavy-duty tubular steel making them perfect for industrial use.

We’ve only scratched the surface with the two items mentioned here on our blog.  If you want to check out – and we highly-recommend that you do – our entire inventory, just point and click your mouse over to our Safety Steps and Step Stools page on the RJ Cox website.   It’s a safe bet that you’ll find something that matches your requirements for a safe climbing apparatus.

Tough Times for NSW Oyster Farmers Dealing with POMS

13535535_mHere at RJ Cox, we wanted to send out our thoughts and well wishes to NSW oyster farmers who are dealing with the recent outbreak of Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome.  The POMS outbreak is causing a dire situation with growers as millions of oysters were wiped out overnight in the Hawkesbury which is north of Sydney.  Sadly, even with the assistance of the NSW government, some oyster farmers could be forced to shut their doors and leave the industry.

The cause for Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome is still not clear.  However, many are linking the recent to heatwave to this outbreak.  While POMS is devastating to oyster crops, there is no health risk to humans and the oysters that are on the market are definitely safe for human consumption.  For those of you who have not kept up with this situation, here is an audio interview discussing the oyster disease in the Hawkesbury, NSW.

This news hits home here at RJ Cox not only because some of our customers are oyster farmers but also because Gary, one of our team members, is also an oyster farmer.  Knowing the industry and what kind of items are beneficial to oyster growers, Gary has sold RJ Cox products to many farmers in the past.

One of the most popular products oyster farmers purchased from RJ Cox are our 120 Litre Garbage Bins.  These affordable, foot-operated, 120-litre wheelie bins are hygienic, durable and perfect for discarded oyster shells.  We also offer a wide-range of food-grade stack and nest containers.  These lightweight, but very tough, containers are UV resistant and safe for food storage needs.  RJ Cox has been proud to provide our services and products to these oyster farmers and hope to continue to help their businesses’ prosper in the future.

We know that this is a tough time for the oyster industry and the oyster farmers affected by POMS.  We also know that these growers – many of whose families have been in the business for generations – are resilient and will withstand this setback.  Once again, our thoughts are with all these farmers and their families.  We wish them all the best.
