Work uniforms are a fundamental part of some key industries and pharmaceuticals is no exception. Not only should pharmaceutical work wear identify individuals, create team cohesion and identify work areas, they also need to provide consistently high levels of protection as well as comply with industry and federal protocols.
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most regulated industries in the world. Every FDA workplace standard must be strictly adhered to or the results can be disastrous. Not only do your employees need clean garments daily that protect them from the normal contaminants and hazards they face on the job, your chosen work uniforms also need to comply with strict OSHA and FDA standards.
What Are the Regulations?
It is the employer’s responsibility to assess the workplace to determine if Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is necessary. The OSHA regulations state that: “Protective equipment, including personal protective equipment for eyes, face, head, and extremities, protective clothing, respiratory devices, and protective shields and barriers, shall be provided, used, and maintained in a sanitary and reliable condition wherever it is necessary by reason of hazards of processes or environment, chemical hazards, radiological hazards, or mechanical irritants encountered in a manner capable of causing injury or impairment in the function of any part of the body through absorption, inhalation or physical contact.” (Ref: 1910.132 (a)).
It’s clear that workwear in the pharmaceutical industry allows no margin for error and no second chances. Your employees are your greatest asset and they deserve the best protective workwear. At the same time, you want to ensure that your employees are fully compliant with industry regulations always while still feeling comfortable, stylish and protected.
