There’s no way around it: the past months have been extremely tough for many industries. Covid-19 has seen many skilled workers laid off, leading to a shortage of workers. As the recovery begins, it’s more important than ever for us to think about secondary benefits that can create a more positive experience for our workers, as well as motivating new employees to join us. Examples of these have included flexible work times and hybrid work models. But have you considered that perhaps protective clothing could also be one of those benefits?
Proclaud®: the protective clothing audit
At TenCate Protective Fabrics, we’ve developed Proclaud®: a protective clothing audit which explores the workwear needs of your team. A key element of Proclaud® is speaking directly with your employees, and getting their honest feedback about their protective clothing. Through our experience of conducting such audits, we’ve gained some really valuable insights. These include:
- Employees feel happier when they have workwear they can wear on and off the job - e.g. to and from work
- When workwear was both comfortable and fashionable, overall employee satisfaction was increased
- Quality workwear helps build employees’ pride in their company
Wearers feedback Quote:
“The chemicals go right through my garment! I didn’t even notice it!”
Conducting a Proclaud® protective clothing audit allows your workers to feel that their opinions are heard and valued. As a result of this feedback, we can help you tailor a protective clothing solution directly around the wants and needs of your workers.
Safety and comfort: working hand-in-hand
As a health and safety manager, we understand that it is your top priority to select protective workwear that prioritises your employees’ safety. The good news is that maintaining the highest safety standards in your workwear does not mean that you need to compromise on employee comfort. At TenCate Protective Fabrics, we are firm believers that our fabrics must come with added value; we believe it’s absolutely possible for garments to be made from fabrics that are not only safe and sustainable, but also comfortable and pleasant for end users to wear day in and day out.
