every worker, every where, safe & healthy

Lawlor & Co. (Hamilton) Limited started in 1962 out of the Lawlor family home.

Started with the intent to service the local steel industry, Lawlor Safety was readily able to meet the need for safety equipment for the workplace. In time, We became a reliable place to get personal protective equipment that workers could equip themselves with to get home safe and healthy at the end of the day.

In 1968, Lawlor Safety outgrew the family home and relocated to our first commercial property at 1529 King Street East, Hamilton. As demand grew, so did our company and we increased our selection of products. The business expanded to reach all over Southern Ontario.

As the needs of the workplace and jobsite have evolved, so have we. After changes in location, from King Street to Barton Street, then to Kenora Avenue; we have been continually poised to meet the needs of Steel Workers, Construction workers, Landscapers, Manufacturers, Trades, Labourers, and all other industries vital to the livelihood of Ontario.

In 2012, Lawlor Safety celebrated a milestone of 50 years in the business of keeping every worker safe on the jobsite. From our home base in Hamilton, we are accessible to surrounding cities, towns, and regions. From our e-commerce website we are accessible across Canada.

In 2013, We moved to our current location at 2727 Barton Street East to accommodate our ever-growing customer base and our growing staff. In 2021, Lawlor Safety employs our largest number yet of hard-working people. From our Sales staff to the Warehouse team and the Technical Services representatives we strive to be at the top of our game. We have met and exceeded the need for safety equipment ranging from footwear, to fall protection, work clothing and gas detection. We carry quality, job ready products from leading industry brands. Lawlor Safety is a family run business, committed to keeping Every Worker, Everywhere, Safe & Healthy.
