How custom workwear makes you feel safer & smarter at work

How custom workwear makes you feel safer & smarter at work

It's no coincidence that the inventor of the hi-viz jacket was himself recovering from an industrial accident. Bob Switzer was injured when unloading crates at a Heinz Ketchup factory in Berkley, California.  And whilst recovering, he came up with the idea of fluorescent paint, and then trialled it on clothing apparently using the fabric of his wife's wedding dress! The rest, they say, is history.  Hi-vis became part of the UK working landscape in the 1960's. In 1964 it was used to support the safety of railway workers in Glasgow.  Soon its value as a protective garment was recognised in law with the advent of the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act. Decorating a high viz jacket adds huge value to its worth.  Not monetary value but safety.   Visibility of the firm's logo of the person wearing this garment can be a huge bonus for people out in the field. Construction workers, emergency responders, firefighters and police officers are just a few of the professionals who rely on hi-viz clothing to decrease the risk of injury while also having the peace of mind to perform a given task.  Likewise kids personalised hi-viz jackets show up at road crossings, and provide space for a school logo enabling the youngster to be easily identified.   Personalised protection for your kids.  Hi Vis Vests, can be used to keep groups together, provide allergy safety advice or phone numbers incase they get lost. Hi-viz workwear is deliberately designed to be loose and can be worn over layers to ensure total visibility without losing bulk.  The fabric is made from durable 100% polyester warp knitted fabric which is fully certified to the latest standard.  You can choose from luminescent lemon or orange colours and at a very reasonable cost, these garments can make the difference between being at risk to being safe at work or at leisure cycling, motorcycling you name it.  There are two fluorescent stripes, one on the chest and one on the waist allowing plenty of room for your design.  Of course this can be repeated or alternative information given on the back of the garment in a clear & concise manner. The benefits of corporate custom clothing are far reaching.  Not only does it give the wearer protection in a health and safety sense, but peace of mind in being identified with a firm. Having a personalised uniform can help promote harmony and equality in the workplace. If each member of staff is dressed similarly, employees are more likely to feel as though they are amongst equals, allowing a more peaceful workplace. Personalised workwear adds value as a smart and comfortable addition.  It instils a professional look and by having a personalised uniform, your employees will not have to spend time the night before work deciding what to wear, and spending out on different clothes for work from their salary.  Customisation also allows the wearer to add their name, job title, or company logo to their workwear.  This gives firms the opportunity to create a unique brand identity whilst providing workers with functional workwear suiting their individual needs. So which garments are best suited to wear at work ?  Custom polo shirts, personalised T-shirts, design your own jackets and bespoke hoodies are particularly popular.  The scope is endless - take the simple idea of putting a member of staff's name and 'Crew' on to the back of a hoodie in large letters, whilst using the same lettering on the front either left breast in smaller lettering or emblazoned using bigger lettering on the front too.  Coupled with a company logo, this individual will stand out immediately for example at a festival event.  Likewise you could have a name and the word 'Coastguard' on the back of a fleece jacket, and on the beach you know who to approach for help. One of the many versatile jackets ideal for use year round at work is the custom softshell jacket.  Coming in an array of attractive colour combinations, you can preview your design with text and one of our great templates.  And the quality stands out for this warm, lightweight and fashionable garment.  Gone are the days when workwear needs to look traditional.  Now your company can embrace technology to order standout items. Plus remember to look out for discounts on bulk orders.
