Providing the right workwear, and the right personal protective equipment (PPE), is of paramount importance across many different industries. The correct workwear not only helps to improve workplace safety, but also seeks to generate the right image for your brand, giving your customers total peace of mind that you’re leaders within your field.
Many organisations, however, often overlook the fact that there is a significant difference between workwear, and quality workwear. Standard, low cost workwear may meet criteria in terms of appearance, but could lack the strength and integrity needed for optimal performance. Quality workwear is essential and there are no compromises.
Quality workwear is never going to be the cheapest but, investing in quality is an essential action for long term growth, development and success. Let’s take a look at just a few reasons why investing in quality is so important:
As an employer, investing in quality means investing in the continued safety and on-site security of your most valuable resource – your workforce.
Whilst most workwear will meet a set of basic safety standards, it is highly unlikely to perform at the same level and maintain its standards for as long as a high quality protective clothing.
Perhaps one of the best indicators of quality is the CE mark featured on some workwear and PPE garments, such as Wearwell apparel. This demonstrates that the clothing has been manufactured in line with approved health and safety standards.
There’s an old saying: ‘Buy well, buy once’. This is something that certainly rings true in terms of workwear and PPE.
As already discussed, low quality workwear is designed to meet basic criteria; it’s not always manufactured with longevity in mind.
Low quality workwear may begin to show signs of wear and tear long before what is considered to be industry standard, resulting in the need to re-purchase with greater frequency to ensure continued levels of safety.
In the long run, investing in quality can save money.
Let’s not forget, investing in quality isn’t just about employee safety; it’s about securing and protecting your professional future.
By providing your employees with high quality workwear and PPE, you’re succeeding in taking the necessary measures to minimise accidents and injury, boost workplace productivity, and ultimately maintain the reputation of your business.
At Wearwell, we believe that quality is the most important factor when choosing workwear, which is why we only manufacturer and supply high quality garments.
