We realize that being cautious can take time and money, but it will save you both in the long run! Every year, thousands of people get hurt, become stuck at home, and often lose their job due to injury. It can change your life in an instant. There are so many things in this world that we cannot prevent from happening, but taking safety precautions is not one of them. Due to that fact, we offer so many safety clothing options!
Like any other safety clothing, you need to consider your needs. Do you need fire resistant, water proof, slip proof, or cut proof clothing? Does your job require you to be outside? Then you may need safety clothing with reflectors and that are a bright color? Will your clothing need to meet certain standards like OSHA regulations? Do you need to be covered head to toe or just focus on a certain area, like gloves for your hands?
Are you only going to use the item once, or does it need to last a while? Does your company require certain colors to be worn while at a job site or in the work place? What about the environment around you? You may need rain gear or insulated clothing depending on what the weather is like in your area. There are a lot of factors to consider, but we want to help you make the right choice!
If you are still confused about what type of safety clothing you may need, just start from your head and work your way down. Hats, including hardhats and sun visors, maybe needed along with cold weather headgear and liners for above your shoulders. You may need all over body protection like overalls or aprons for your core. Either of those may come with reflectors, or you may decide that you need a reflective vest.
In addition, a safety belt may be of use if you do not need a full reflective vest, but still want to be able to be seen easily. Safety gloves and cut resistant sleeves might be useful for your arms and hands. Then of course you have to protect your feet! Boots, shoes, and even protectant socks may help you stay warm, dry, and safe, depending on your work environment of course!
Take a look at this comprehensive guide which covers just about all situations.
And don’t forget eye and ear protection. It only takes an instance to damage your eyes and ears, and it will have an impact your life for ever. Think about the dangers every day and take the appropriate action. It all depends on what you need to stay safe in your work environment!!
I like to include a video in my blogs, and this one really hits home about the importance of eye protection. Watch it and learn!
