How phs Besafe can help the Emergency Service industry
Emergency workers, such as firefighters and paramedics put themselves in danger every day, responding to rail and traffic incidents, floods, chemical spills, fires and explosions, to name a few. Staying safe whilst operating in extremely hazardous environments in variable conditions is of paramount importance. And while emergency personnel are rightly focused on treating injuries or fighting fires, to be able to do this effectively they need the correct protective clothing to keep safe while on the job.
As we’ve seen above, the number of hazardous situations the emergency services may face calls for suitable protective clothing to ensure they are ready to respond to the job safely. The correct workwear, particularly for firefighters, should include flame retardant garments that don’t restrict movement. To meet the fire safety standards for this occupation, phs Besafe’s protective clothing complies with specific European regulations such as EN ISO 11612 (Flame Retardant).
For jobs that require the fire service to encounter heat, gases and chemicals, phs Besafe has a selection of flame retardant protective clothing that ensures safety in these environments. The Flame Gear range provides lightweight protection that doesn’t restrict movement while carrying out everyday tasks. Features such as elasticated waists, kneepads and movement panels come as standard to ensure a comfortable fit.
It’s also important to consider maintaining protective clothing, which can be a tough job given the extremes the garments must endure. phs Besafe ensures all clothing is laundered on the correct wash cycle, and all items that pass through our industrial workwear laundry services are hand sorted and segregated by their specialist properties, including flame retardancy and high visibility.
phs Besafe’s Industrial Laundry Services take care to wash protective workwear with organic detergents, plus they are also kinder to the environment. This service also inspects garments and makes repairs whenever necessary. You don’t have to worry about contamination issues either as workwear is collected from your site, cleaned thoroughly and returned ready to wear. Using a professional service not only keeps essential safety uniform well-maintained but it can also assist your business in reducing protective clothing replacement costs in the long term.
