LogoSportswear launches protective wear for workers

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.
