  • 4 key pieces of workwear you need all year round

    Hopefully the worst of the winter is now behind us, but there are a few key pieces of workwear which can keep workers safe and comfortable throughout the year. Here’s a roundup of the clothing and accessories outdoor workers should invest in.

    1. UV Protective Eyewear

    It’s not just at the height of summer that we need to protect our eyes. In fact, UV rays can be more damaging to our eyes on cloudy days, due to a scattering effect on the light. Regular exposure to UV rays can cause a range of eye conditions including cataracts and AMD -- age-related macular degeneration.

    2. Breathable waterproof jacket

    In the UK having a waterproof that is lightweight and easy to have onhand at all times is certainly beneficial. Ideally the fabric will have taped seams and a stormflap to keep rain out and the fabric should offer good level of waterproof protection but also breathability, to help avoid getting too hot and moist inside the jacket.

    This packaway rain jacket includes many features such as, Taped seams, Integral hood, Waterproof and breathable Isolite lightweight Polyamide fabric, Windproof, Studded stormflap with hook and loop, 2 lower pockets and Mesh stuff sack

    4. Safe footwear

    Slips and trips cause nearly 40% of all serious accidents, but the good news is that around 50% of these can be prevented by good safety practice in the workplace and wearing safe, comfortable footwear. Safety boots are good for some work environments, and if a worker is on their feet for long stretches, the footwear should have a broad base and have a heel no higher than 2cm in height.

  • How effective are your cleaning products?


    Close Up Of Worker In Restaurant Kitchen Cleaning Down After Service

    Ensuring that a commercial workplace is adequately cleaned is both crucial and demanding. With staff using shared equipment, communal areas and washrooms, businesses need to take
    hygiene standards to a whole new level. Those businesses within the food industry face even more challenges.
    In these industries, it is helpful to understand how effective products are and to be certain that the products you are using are effective against the bacteria and viruses that you need to eradicate.

    Understanding the labelling on disinfectant products is important, particularly when vital information might be unclear due to marketing messages on the products. One of the most common terms to be found is that a disinfectant kills 99.9% of germs. In real terms, disinfectants which bear this label may not kill the specific variety of bacteria or pathogen you need killed.

    Disinfectants must list the microorganisms which a product has been tested for and found to be effective against on their label, as well as proper dilution and directions for use. There are many different formulations of disinfectant products which vary in chemical composition and efficacy claims (which germs they have been proven to kill).

    So how can you choose the best disinfectant and cleaning products for your business?

    Consider a few key factors:


    Disinfectants kill only select strains of germs. No disinfectant is capable of killing all germs found on a hard surface. The absence of all germs is referred to as sterilization and this cannot be achieved by using disinfectant solution alone. It is important to identify the key germs you need to eradicate and to select the best product to do that.
    Some types of formulations are particularly effective against bacteria commonly found in and around food preparation areas and it can be important to consider the kinds of foods you are
    working with and common pathogens linked to that food type.
    Seafood, for example can be host to bacteria including Vibrio, Salmonella, Shigella, and Listeria. Foodborne pathogens that affect meat, poultry, and processed egg products include V Bacteria, Bacillus cereus, Brucella species, Campylobacter, Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium perfringens, E. coli O157:H7 and other Shiga-toxin- producing E. coli (STEC), Salmonella, Shigella, Staphylococcus aureus and Yersinia enterocolitica.

    preparation areas, breweries, shops, restaurants and canteens.

    Some disinfectants are not recommended for all surfaces. Bleach, for example can damage stainless steel and strongly alkaline disinfectants can damage floors and fabrics.
