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.

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.

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.
