Safety and hygiene have always been at the top of the list of reasons for establishing a professional work uniform program. That hasn’t changed.
But with the threat posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the concept of “safety and hygiene” itself has undergone a dramatic transformation. That’s why we see so many workplaces adopting the practices and higher sanitation standards once associated only with specialized industries, like food and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Today, a higher standard of sanitation and disinfection is the baseline for every type of workplace. Businesses that never had a work uniform program in the past are taking their cues from businesses that not only use a sanitized work uniform program, but also require their employees to change in and out of their uniforms at work.
While there’s no such thing as completely eliminating the risk, a diligent effort to minimize the threat starts with a high-quality work uniform program. Here’s why.
Protect Your Workplace Throughout COVID and Beyond
A high-quality work uniform program starts with a high-quality provider. At Budget, we are part of an industry that was built around a higher standard of hygiene and cleanliness and we have a long history of serving customers in industries where sanitation practices were built into their processes long before COVID-19.
There’s a good reason why the work uniform industry is designated as an essential industry in a pandemic. Industrial laundering employs a detergent formula, bleaching agents and water temperatures that eliminate all microorganisms – including COVID-19 – that threaten workplace health and safety, as well as the health and safety of those who use your goods and services. That didn’t start with the current threat. While a pandemic clearly heightens the risk, a wide variety of viruses and bacteria pose a threat to health and wellness year in and year out.
Start with a Work Uniform Partner Whose Standards Were Already High
Our industry best practices have always included meticulous processes around sanitation and the prevention of cross contamination among garments. Today, we’ve added an array of additional processes to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19. That includes twice-a-day sanitizing of our plant, stockroom and production facility and UV light-sanitizing of our trucks. You can learn more about these and other safety practices here.
These are practices likely to stay with us long after the threat of COVID-19 has passed, as businesses across Southern California and beyond also begin the adjustment to a healthier way of working.
If you have never considered a professional work uniform program, now is a good time to find one you and your employees can trust. Lost uniforms and shortages are more than an inconvenience if your employees are attempting to wash their own uniforms at home or wearing the wrong uniforms.
