The basics

We all have different preferences for the devices we use. You will probably be aware that different computers and smartphones use different browsers. If you have a Mac or an iPhone, these are made by Apple and you will need to use the Safari web browser that comes installed on the devices. Windows and Android are more flexible, with a range of different free browsers available to access your Online Workwear Portal. We’ve catered for the most popular browsers to make sure that nobody is left out.

Desktop Shortcut options: Microsoft Windows PC

Browser: Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is the new browser that comes pre-installed on Windows, which replaces Internet Explorer. For security, we recommend replacing Internet Explorer and using Microsoft Edge.

Browser: Google Chrome

Google Chrome is made (unsurprisingly) by Google and is the chosen web browser for many, due to its user-friendliness and easy linking across multiple devices to services such as Gmail, Google Drive and Google Maps.
