How To Choose Your Industrial Uniforms
Whether for safety or company unity, most industries require some type of uniform. And, if you’re looking to purchase industrial uniforms for your business, there is more to the process than simply choosing ones that look nice. It’s important that you take into account a number of factors that will dictate what you need, such as safety, branding and purchasing options.Safety First
If your employees are working in an environment that requires safety or protection from potential hazards, such as a warehouse, a lab or doctor’s office, it’s important that the first consideration you make is for safety. There are a number of safety concerns to think about:
- Fire hazard: Full body, flame resistant suits
- Disease/illness/bacterial: Surgical mask
- Chemical or hazardous materials: Long coats and goggles
- Falling materials: Hard hats and steel toe boots
Once you have the right safety specifications out of the way, you’ll need to decide whether branding will be an important aspect of your uniform choice. For employees who work mostly back end, there is likely no need for branding. In fact, it may end up saving you money by purchasing standard ones that fit your other needs. However, you may want to brand your uniforms for a variety of reasons:
- Customer interactions happen frequently
- Business partners are often coming in and out
- Your employees work outside
- Your employees are a main representation of the business via delivery, for example
Finally, you’ll want to consider your purchasing options. Whether you have room in your budget for uniforms or not, there are two major options for every business.
- Renting: If you need uniforms now, but not in the future, or you can’t make the investment at the time, consider renting. Be sure to ask about their expectations for returning uniforms, interest charged, etc.
- Purchasing: You may want to make an outright purchase if you plan to use uniforms in the future, work in a destructive environment or have specific branding needs.
