The Importance of Safety Clothing and Related Protective Clothing
The law requires employers whose workplaces contain inherent hazards to protect their employees by providing personal protective equipment (PPE) as necessary. Here you’ll find a comprehensive selection of safety wear clothing, including coveralls, boots, hi-viz, hairnets, and more. We keep a large inventory of products from various brands to ensure customers can make the right choice.
One of the most common categories of safety clothing is the coverall. This is a full-body garment that shields the body from dangerous chemicals, liquids, and substances. They come in different styles and levels of security depending on the situation. Some will have tight cuffs to seal the insides of the sleeps, some have shoe covers built in, some have hoods or a combination of features. They can be made of a variety of materials, from serged seam fabric that can shut out particles as small as a single micron, to anti-microbial and flame-retardant fabrics designed for particular situations.
High-visibility safety clothing (or hi-viz) is becoming increasingly vital for hazardous work zones. It allows everyone to be easily located in a busy or crowded work situation, and prevent accidents by alerting equipment operators and drivers of a worker’s presence. Hi-viz garments can be t-shirts, vests, and jackets. Different colors can be used in various configurations to indicate rank or visually identify members of a particular team, and reflective striping is also available on some garments.
There are also smaller garments and accessories for protecting the head and limbs. Hairnets and removable sleeves are often required for food processing and similar jobs. For the face, we carry a variety of winter liners to protect the face from the bitter cold. Some of these are flame-retardant, for workers in both cold weather and flammable environments.
