Roscoe Outfits Reps with High Visibility Work Uniforms

High Visibility Work Uniforms

Over the next several weeks, Roscoe's route service representatives (RSRs) will begin wearing high visibility uniforms, including pants, shirts, shorts, and jackets.

Our RSRs spend a lot of time in potentially-hazardous environments like parking lots, loading docks and roadways. Although visibility uniforms are not required by law for the work and exposure that our RSRs are subject to, we at Roscoe would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to our team members. In addition to employee safety, an accident caused due to low visibility and not taking precautionary measures leaves your company open to OSHA fines and increased insurance premiums. Additionally, an accident that could have possibly been prevented can also affect employee morale.

The Roscoe Company Examines its Preparedness for National Fire Prevention Month

Team Members Practice Containment Procedures at the Uniform Company

Roscoe, the Chicago mat company, is an avid fan of planning, setting goals and creating contingency plans for all sorts of situations. Emergency situations may occur that no amount of planning can prevent, but being as prepared as possible is key for a swift recovery.

The loss experienced from an unforeseen fire whether at home or at a business place is devastating. According to OSHA, fires and explosions kill an estimated 200 workers and injure more than 5,000 others each year in the U.S.; or 3% of all Fatal Occupational Injuries.
