Cheshire, CT (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
LogoSportswear, a company known for offering the widest variety of custom sportswear choices and decoration options, releases over 100 new custom work wear products designed to increase safety amongst workers in some of the most dangerous industries in the U.S. The company launched the first of its kind feature to allow customers to customize safety work wear by adding reflective tape through its online designer. Their expanded custom work wear collection includes high visibility apparel, flame resistant (FR) apparel and uniforms for a variety of professions.
The addition of high visibility and flame resistant (FR) apparel were chosen to provide visibility and protection to workers from being struck or burned while on the job. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics’ most recent statistics, the majority of fatal occupational injuries (4,609 in 2011) happen in a small number of industry sectors. High visibility and flame resistant (FR) apparel help to protect workers identified in the top 10 most dangerous jobs as well as others.
High visibility apparel acts as the first line of defense to protect workers against being struck by a piece of equipment or a vehicle. Safety vests, work shirts, jackets and caps are available in high visibility colors like fluorescent orange, yellow and red. For those working in the top 3 most dangerous jobs (transportation and warehousing, construction, forestry and hunting), wearing hi-vis clothing is essential at operations both big and small. A selection of LogoSportswear’s new high visibility clothing line is purchased directly from top manufacturers like: Carhartt, Red Kap and Port Authority and meets Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 ANSI requirements. Custom safety shirts can be customized using printing or embroidery techniques or purchased without decoration. They’re the only company that allows you to customize work wear by adding reflective tape for extra visibility using their online designer.
Workers in utility and construction sectors are required by NFPA standards to use flame resistant (FR) apparel to protect them from electric arc flashes and flash fire hazards which could cause severe or fatal burn injuries. To limit the degree of burn and body burn percentage, LogoSportswear now carries Bulwark, Carhartt and other top name brand FR clothing that uses flame-resistant chemicals on the fabric that is designed to self-extinguish within seconds after the ignition source is removed. By wearing multiple layers of FR clothing such as base layers like t-shirts to outer layers like sweatshirts, vests, jackets and coveralls workers will achieve a higher HRC (Hazard Risk Category) rating which equals better protection.
LogoSportswear believes that the first step in preventing serious injuries or death while on the job is education. During the month of June, the National Safety Council (NSC) urges companies to get involved in National Safety Month. During this month, creating a culture around continued safety, awareness and education is the focus. To help save lives, it’s important to follow these recommendations not only during this month of focus but beyond. LogoSportswear partners with companies big and small to provide them with the custom work wear they need to keep workers safe and stay in compliance with regulations and creates a unified company appearance.
The company also increased its’ selection of custom work wear to include custom restaurant uniforms, chef wear, medical scrubs, security clothing, hospitality apparel to meet the demands of their customers. Work wear purchased at LogoSportswear can be customized with a company’s logo, artwork and text using the online designer or purchased blank. To save time and make it easy, thousands of free design templates can be used if customers don’t have their own design to upload. Embroidery, digital printing and screen printing decoration options are available.
