A Guide on What to Wear to Work

Posted last August 31, 2017, 4:32 pm in Stores report article

It can be a challenging task sometimes to stand in front of your closet and decide what to wear to your next work event. Some tough jobs such as welding or construction work do not offer much flexibility in dress style. Workers have to prioritize safety over fashion and style. What you should wear to work entirely depends on the nature of your work. You can afford to wear something fancy or classy if you are planning to attend an important meeting. But you cannot wear a nice suit when your job is to deal with fire, chemicals, electricity, and heat.


In some workplaces, employees have to follow the dress codes designed by the concerned authorities. In this case, employees can't be choosy about their workwear. If your job is to deal with the hazardous environment, you have to select your workwear in accordance with the nature of hazards. Safety always comes first. It is not recommended to handle chemicals while wearing casual t-shirt and trousers. Creating a strong look is about respect for both your working environment and yourself.


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protects the user against health and safety risks. It includes helmets, high-visibility clothing such as coveralls and bib pants, gloves, footwear, etc. PPE does not include working uniforms designed for offices where there are no safety related concerns. Following are some of the categories of workwear:


  • Waterproof workwear

  • Insulated workwear

  • Flame retardant workwear

  • High-visibility workwear


Every profession demands a different dress and equipment depending on the nature of tasks and environment where workers have to perform. Safety garments can have multiple features. For example, a coverall can have the properties of being insulated, highly visible, and flame retardant. This is why coveralls are popular safety garments used widely by professionals from varying professions. Shop coats and bib pants are also some of the common work garments used widely by workers.


There are differences in physical dimensions of employees depending on their size, gender, and ethnicity. Safety garment manufacturers, therefore, make their products in different size and style. Some companies also offer custom workwear solutions.

 

A wearer should be well aware of the limitations of his work dress. Some of the essential features of a good working dress are comfort, ease of movement, safety, and compatibility.  It would be annoying if your dress does not allow you to move freely and perform your duties with ease. Likewise, it would be dangerous to deal with the fire if your dress is not fire retardant. Take into account these important factors before buying safety clothes for work. Always select a reliable safety garments manufacturer.
