Professional and disposable clothing for a safe working environment

Professional and disposable clothing in the food industry does not only aim at uniformity among each other, but also fulfils many other requirements, depending on the design. Whether for protection against cold, wetness or dangerous cuts, for the baker or the waitress – in the food industry special workwear is used for many professions. Strict quality guidelines guarantee the production of high quality food and in order to meet these guidelines, certain requirements are set for the clothing to be worn by the employees.

The guidelines according to HACCP as well as according to DIN 10524 refer, for example, to the food sector and can be found in various designs in our range. These requirements can only be met by robust and hard-wearing clothing that is exposed to extreme conditions that are rather unusual in everyday life.

If you are looking for suitable clothing, you will come across the following two options, which have very different advantages depending on the type of use: disposable clothing and workwear. The latter is also suitable for industrial washing without any problems. In addition to safety and hygiene, the highest functionality and best wearing comfort are important characteristics that should be fulfilled by the workwear. Because it is not uncommon for employees to have to wear their work clothes all day. In our B2B online shop you will therefore find special clothing that meets the highest requirements for workwear and disposable clothing.

Protection from head to toe through work clothing

According to the latest guidelines, holistic occupational safety clothing goes far beyond jackets and trousers. Many activities require shoes, gloves, ear and head protection or further details such as protective goggles or bump caps as a supplement. If workers are exposed to high noise levels, they must at least be provided with earplugs, depending on the level. In addition to simple earplugs, detectable alternatives or earmuffs are also available. Depending on the field of activity, gloves are often indispensable in the food industry – whether as disposable gloves for short hygienic use or as a more robust variant such as cold, cut and puncture protection gloves.

Shoes are also part of work clothing

If, despite the best safety clothing and precautions, a minor accident or injury should occur from time to time, plaster boxes with detectable plasters and eye rinsing sets are a useful addition to the mandatory first aid kits. Depending on the work environment, special shoes and boots can also help to reduce the risk of accidents. For example, comfortable clogs are best suited for areas with long periods of standing, but low risks of foot injuries from machines or the like. In wet areas in particular, on the other hand, the wearing of high boots with non-slip soles should be mandatory. These can then be extended to include steel caps or other additions as required.

Functional diversity of workwear and disposable clothing

Just as wide-ranging as the variety of professions in the food industry are the quality requirements for the individual garments. Depending on the place of use, emphasis is placed on different functions. Even the sole contact with food – without any further tasks – requires special food clothing that complies with the legal guidelines. This can consist of special headgear, gloves, earmuffs or shoes, for example.

If special clothing is also prescribed for the torso area, companies have a choice of trousers, shirts, sweaters, shirts, vests, jackets and shooters. The extent to which you have to make these available to your employees is determined by the different areas of your production.

For example, working in cold premises such as a cold store requires special cold-protective clothing to protect against the icy cold and to work effectively. This is composed of several layers to fully protect the body from frostbite.

While cutting meat and other food, precautions should also be taken to minimize the risk of injury. Because no matter how good the butcher is, if he slips once, this could have fatal consequences. Stab protection aprons made of robust materials are needed.

Wet garments as well as cooking and bakery garments represent only a few other circumstances for special garments that have to meet special requirements.
