Comfort Beyond Safety: Other Advantages of PHS Besafe Workwear                  

When it comes to workwear, the primary focus is always safety, for obvious reasons. While ensuring the safety of employees will always be paramount, there's an often overlooked aspect that plays a crucial role in overall job performance and satisfaction – the comfort factor. 

At PHS Besafe, we recognise this need and have prioritised comfort in our workwear solutions, understanding that comfort goes hand in hand with safety.  In many ways, in hard physical jobs, comfort often is safety.

Let’s just look at a few of the ways comfort matters:

The Unseen Impact of Comfort

Comfortable workwear contributes to employee well-being in more ways than one. Imagine a long shift where employees are required to move actively and perform tasks that demand agility. Uncomfortable, restrictive workwear can not only hamper productivity but also lead to fatigue and, in the long run, potential health issues. We have taken a proactive approach in recognizing the link between comfort and overall job satisfaction.

Materials Matter: The Science of Comfort

We regularly invest in advanced materials and fabric technologies to ensure that our workwear not only meets safety standards but also provides a level of comfort that is unparalleled. Moisture-wicking fabrics are incorporated to keep employees dry during physically demanding tasks, while stretchable materials allow for freedom of movement, enhancing the overall comfort experience.

Going Beyond the Basics

Like any decent company, PHS Besafe doesn't stop at meeting the minimum comfort requirements. We continually strive to innovate and elevate the comfort standards in laundered workwear. From ergonomic designs to temperature-regulating features, every aspect is carefully considered to provide a holistic and comfortable workwear experience.

The Impact on Company Culture

Comfortable workwear isn't just an individual benefit; it also contributes to a positive company culture. Employees who feel supported and comfortable are more likely to be engaged and satisfied in their roles. This, in turn, has a cascading effect on productivity and, ultimately, the success of the company.

But what do we actually offer in the way of comfort? 

Let’s take a look at a few of our ranges, all of which are available on a completely laundered basis, allowing companies to focus on what they do best:

Bright Gear

Our Bright Gear range is made up of high visibility, comfortable, lightweight fabrics that repels moisture and stains. It is ideal for keeping workers warm and comfortable outdoors while also improving their visibility and safety. Conforms to railway industry standards and is popular with rail workers and other heavy duty outdoor work.

Flame Gear

Our Flame Gear range includes a range of clothes designed for protection for grinding, welding and cutting across all industries. It has also been specially selected for processing through our laundry service to remove contaminants and ensure the garments continue to offer maximum protection. While this range is designed to provide increased safety in hazardous conditions, we also kept in mind the requirements of working in confined spaces, with freedom of movement and comfort being a priority at all times.

Foul Weather Gear

Our Foul Weather Gear range is made with GORE-TEX and does what it says on the tin. GORE-TEX offers extremely durable and highly visible protection against heavy rain, snow and wind all year round, even at higher temperatures. These garments are designed to withstand wear and tear and last longer than the vast majority of workwear, reducing the requirement for replacement expenditure. While rugged protection and weather-proof materials were a priority in developing these garments, the inside is made from a soft polyester layer designed to offer extra warmth and a high level of comfort.

In the realm of workwear, where safety is non-negotiable, PHS Besafe is setting itself apart by recognising that comfort is also critical. The comfort factor in their workwear solutions is not just a feature; it's a philosophy that echoes through the fabric of each garment. As companies prioritise the well-being of their employees, the overlooked comfort factor is gaining the attention it deserves, and PHS Besafe is leading the charge, ensuring that safety and comfort coexist seamlessly in the modern workplace.
