Cover Up For Safety With Single-Use Coveralls

Cover Up For Safety With Single-Use Coveralls

Many employees in the manufacturing industry are exposed to particles, chemicals, and liquids that could potentially be hazardous to their health. The safety of those employees is the responsibility of the facility in which they work. Access to the right personal protective equipment (PPE), like coveralls, is a good place to start.

Get Employees Covered

The biggest advantage in wearing coveralls is safety. They provide employees with important full-body protection from workplace hazards. Workplaces that offer employees comfortable and effective coveralls can help them stay focused on the task at hand. As a bonus, they can also increase time on the job and raise productivity. 

So then why do so many employees dislike wearing coveralls?

Often, they are uncomfortable, hot, and tight in all the wrong places. Employees find that too-snug coveralls rip when they move around to complete job tasks, and occasionally they will purposely tear the coveralls to gain a wider range of motion. Naturally, this counteracts the protective nature of the coveralls. Additionally, some single-use coveralls are made of materials that don’t breathe, leaving some employees feeling sweaty, overheated and unable to focus.

Other dislikes include difficulty in sizing. Often employees will wear larger coveralls that allow them to move more easily, meaning businesses see increased costs from purchasing extended sizes. Finally, single-use coveralls can be tough on the environment, as they are often difficult to recycle, and ultimately end up in the landfill.

Suit Up with KleenGuard

Kimberly-Clark Professional’s KleenGuard Coveralls solve many of these issues. Benefits of KleenGuard include:

  • No front seams mean better coverage and less tearing where it counts.
  • Generous give in the seat and through the shoulders makes suits in every size more comfortable.
  • An optional breathable back increases airflow and reduces overheating.
  • A wide variety of options like hoods, boots, elastic wrists and ankles to meet any need.
  • Extended range of sizes up to 6x means comfort for every employee.
  • Recyclable through Kimberly-Clark’s RightCycle program. The program collects single-use coveralls and gloves and turns them into sustainable plastic products like patio furniture, planters and more.
