Wearing comfortable and safe clothing in the workplace is essential. Here are some uniform accessories to add to your work uniform.
Whether you’re a nurse, a security guard, a cafeteria worker, an office executive or a teacher (or something else entirely), your work uniform, the clothes you wear into the office, are so important. They need to be functional, durable, comfortable and most importantly, safe.
Below, we’ve outlined a few simple, accessories and additions to your uniform, no matter what the job, to ensure that you’re comfortable, safe and secure at work.
Custom badge reels have multiple, equally important functions. For starters, they’re an identifier. Your badge reel contains easily-seen information about you, such as who you are, where you’re allowed in certain spaces at work, and who you work for. It helps identify you as part of the team and in some cases, actually gives you clearance to certain areas. Many ID cards on badge reels also function as a keycard, so it’s important that they not break down or malfunction. That’s why most badge reels also have a clear plastic or laminate cover or case to protect the sensitive information and technology within. Badge reels can also serve as name tags for those who work with the public, displaying their credentials and qualifications quickly and easily so your clients, customers or patients know that you’re a trustworthy member of the team. Badge reels are important in so many different professions. Everyone from security guards to contractors to doctors and CEOs use them.
Proper Protective Wear
If you work in the food industry or handle chemicals or other hazardous, leaky or odorous materials, you need to take precautions for your safety and the safety of others. Items like hairnets and masks are so important for this. While it’s easy to complain about the way they look, it’s best to remember that these are worn for your safety (and that of others). Many companies offer items like these that are affordable and more trendy and stylish than those of yesteryear.
The same goes for protective vests, which come in a variety of neon colors and styles, depending on your needs and preferences. Never eschew the safety gear; it’s necessary!
Easier said than done if you work in an office with a strict dress code. Those heels might be completely necessary. But if you’re able to, invest in a pair of shoes that have supporting soles and are well made, warm and durable. If you can’t get away with comfy shoes, inserts can be bought affordably for any style of shoe, that will help protect your feet and keep you moving along quickly to that next task.
Too many people put off getting glasses when they need them because they’re worried about affordability or the way they look. If you work at a job where your sight is relied upon daily, it’s time to bite the bullet and invest in a pair of glasses. Even if your insurance plan doesn’t cover vision, there are many affordable places to get an eye exam and a pair of great-looking shades that won’t break the bank, with several companies online that offer discount pairs if you can provide your prescription.
These are just a few ways to upgrade your workplace attire safely; accessories and accompaniments that will keep you safe and efficient every day of the week.
