MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To promote worker safety and reduce accidents associated with low-light or busy, fast-moving environments, Cintas Canada, Ltd. today introduced its new visibility workwear rental program. Designed for workers in warehouses, construction, transportation and building materials industries, the program offers high and enhanced visibility shirts, pants and coveralls.
Under provincial Occupational Health & Safety legislation, employers have a duty to keep employees safe. As a result, more companies are adopting visibility programs if workers are in an environment that requires additional visibility.
“More organizations are looking for ways to improve the safety of workers,” said Scott Neill, Merchandising Manager, Cintas Canada and member of the CSA-Z96 committee for High Visibility Safety Apparel. “Our visibility workwear program not only keeps workers in plain sight, it eliminates many of the headaches associated with managing a safety apparel program. With Cintas, workers always have the right apparel available when they need it.”
Cintas also has a complete line of direct sale apparel in both enhanced and high visibility that complements this new addition to the rental apparel product line.
Cintas’ high-visibility garments are available in orange with retro-reflective striping and are ideal for individuals working in transportation or construction zones. The orange garments also comply with the CSA-Z96 standard.
Cintas’ enhanced-visibility garments are available in navy with striping and provide great protection for workers in warehouses or distribution centres. The polyester/cotton shirt and pant utilizes Cintas’ exclusive “Comfort Touch” fabric that combines a superior fabric and the safety of a reflective garment.
Cintas provides full-service rental apparel solutions, ensuring that workers always have high quality garments available. Cintas launders garments according to specifications to preserve the integrity of the garment, inspecting for tears or wear patterns. Having a managed program to maintain the integrity of these garments is imperative given the reflectivity of both the background fabric and retro-reflective tape.
“Canada has many complex work environments and our new visibility garment program will help add additional safety for workers,” added Neill.
