Industrial workers risking safety

Published:  14 December, 2016

Berendsen_UK_Ltd.jpgMore than half of industrial workers are washing their workwear and protective clothing at home and potentially risking their safety, new research claims.

Conducted with engineering, manufacturing, petrochemical and transport companies, the research was commissioned by BERENDSEN, a leading UK fully managed workwear provider. Commenting on the findings, Kiratpal Randhawa, product marketing manager, said: “The impact professional clothing can have on a firm appears to be somewhat underestimated, yet it is an essential business component in most industries. Aside from the significant hidden costs, it is alarming to discover that so many employees are laundering their workwear at home and potentially unknowingly limiting the effectiveness of the fabrics, which can pose a threat to their safety.”
