Choose the Right Workwear for You

March 9, 2018

To ensure comfort during the workday, it is important to get the right fitting clothing to suit the job at hand. Endurite offers a range of quality men and women’s workwear to provide you with the ultimate comfort and durability for any task. Clothing that fits poorly can lead to discomfort and may even compromise safety, so understanding what workwear is necessary and what size is required is of the upmost importance.

 

What to consider when selecting the right workwear:

 

  • High visibility clothing is required on most jobsites and in high risk environments to make sure workers are distinct against any backgrounds and are easy to see.

  • Styles that include reflective tape are useful for providing extra visibility in high risk applications, particularly around moving vehicles.

  • Choosing the right fabric for the level of protection and performance required should also be taken into account when shopping for new workwear. Cotton breathes well and has anti-static properties. Reinforced material may also be beneficial in instances wear rips and tears are more likely.

  • Shirts may come in lightweight, regular and heavyweight material, affecting the level of comfort experienced in different conditions. It’s best to note how many grams per square metre (gsm) the item has when choosing the right shirt – the lower the gsm the lighter and more breathable the garment is. Heavy weight fabric provides better insulation from cold environments and greater protection.

  • Workers exposed to hazards like arc flashes, flash fires, combustible dust, radiant heat or energised electrical equipment should choose flame or spark resistant clothing. This type of clothing self-extinguishes and provides thermal insulation to the wearer.
