Quality and safe workwear

TOO often we see that companies provide just a basic level of workwear to their staff members to cover Occupational health and safety (OHS) risk.

But have they really thought about the quality, compliance and standards their workwear is adhered to?

If you are supplying your staff members with non-compliance workwear for the sake of saving few dollars then it's likely that these would be the most common complaints you'll be hearing from the workers and staff members on regular basis.

"My safety uniform is getting worn out after just a few washes!" My workwear is easily torn after wearing it just a few times! The zips, buttons and studs are falling off after just few washes! The colour of my workwear has faded from orange into white!"

Do these complaints sound familiar? If so, then it is time you seriously consider reviewing your organisation's procurement of workwear uniforms.

Too often businesses end up choosing workwear based on the price factor only without considering the value.

Lowly priced workwear manufactured poorly with poor quality raw materials can have fatal consequences on the wearer.

For example, loose-fitted protective clothing can easily get caught into the machinery; fading of hi-viz colours makes the garment non-compliant to daytime visibility; poor quality reflector tapes would dissipate easily and making the worker invisible at night; all these instances have the potential of causing a serious accident to the worker!

It is vital for every business to ensure that the workwear and personal protective equipment (PPE) they use is right for the hazard and reduces exposure to the level required to protect the wearer's health. This will allow them to feel safe when carrying out a hazardous task.

Staff that are supplied with well-fitted, quality workwear are more likely to feel valued and would be more motivated; ultimately this can help with the retention and recruitment of staff members.
