Dickies keeps cleaners safe - and clean, while at work
Cleaning is a generic job - it is carried out in all industry groups and all workplaces, and the cleaning industry has proved over several years to be one of the most dynamic sectors representing one of the largest services to business industries in the European Union.
The hazards and risks faced by cleaners include: exposure to dangerous substances, including biological agents that can lead to asthma, allergies, and blood-borne infections; noise and vibration. Slips, trips, and falls, particularly during 'wet work'; electrical hazards from work equipment.
To minimise the risks, business owners have an obligation to provide employees with a safe work environment, including taking sufficient steps to prevent the risk of injury. This encompasses the provision of top-to-toe personal protection, with requirements ranging from bump caps, eyewear and masks to gloves.
Dickies is a world-renowned brand for safety clothing, protective workwear and personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE products from Dickies include ear defenders, ear plugs for ear protection, goggles and safety glasses to protect eyes, bump caps, gloves for hand protection, respirators and disposable coveralls.
A Dickies polo shirt offers comfort and durability and a wide range of suitable coveralls which are functionally and durable and will protect your clothes underneath.
To avoid slips and falls wear Dickies Stockton super safety trainer or Clifton shoe, which includes a steel toecap and midsole for maximum protection whilst resisting petrol, oil, alkalis and some acids.
