Roscoe Pride Means Your Image is Our Image

Works Uniforms for Packaging Manufacturer

When a multinational company tries you on for size and keeps coming back, you know you're doing something right.

At Roscoe, that means having a uniform rental program that our clients – big and small – can rely upon to provide high quality work uniforms kept in good condition and delivered on time, in the right quantity and with no surprise up-charges.

It means having a mat rental program that is reliable, cost-effective and worry free. It means being able to provide high-quality image apparel in a wide variety of products for promoting a client's brand.

When a relationship grows to include all of that – that's when we know that we've earned our Roscoe pride.

As part of our Dirty Facts blog post series, below are the latest research findings and statistics related to the impact of slips and falls on the health of your employees, customers and others.


  • The average slip-and-fall claim is $4,000 (NFSI)
  • The average cost of a slip-related injury exceeds $12,000 (Wausau Insurance Co.)
  • The average cost to defend against a slip-and-fall lawsuit is $50,000 (NFSI)
  • Fall-related medical expenses cost Americans more than $20 billion each year; projections show these expenses will climb to more than $32 billion over the next 20 years (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • For every dollar spent on floor maintenance products, the average supermarket will spend $3 paying for slip and fall accidents (NFSI)
  • Preventing workplace injuries makes it easier for a company to reach its financial goals. For example, a company with $100,000 of costs related to workplace injuries will have to produce an additional $2 million in revenue just to cover the expense, assuming a 5% profit margin.

The Uniform Services Company is Dedicated to Continuous Improvement Through Customer Feedback

As an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, continuous improvement driven by customer feedback is the core of Roscoe's quality program. The Chicago uniform company hired Market Measurement, Inc., an independent market research firm, to conduct a brief telephone survey among our customers. The survey, conducted by professional market research interviewers, should require no more than eight-nine minutes, but provide a wealth of information for the laundry service team to make improvements in the products we provide.  text


Roscoe Team Members Unite to Provide Exceptional Service

Teamwork is vital for an operation to run smoothly and efficiently. Steve Jobs had a very interesting metaphor for teamwork. When he was younger he befriended an elderly neighbor who invited him to his garage one day to show him an old rock tumbler. The neighbor got some regular old ugly rocks and put them in the can with a little bit of liquid and grit powder, closed the can and told him to come back the next day. The can made quite the racket as the stones went around. When Jobs came back the next day the man opened the can and took out these amazingly beautiful polished rocks. Jobs goes on to say that, "through the team, through that group of incredibly talented people bumping up against each other, having arguments, having fights sometimes, making some noise, and working together they polish each other and they polish the ideas, and what comes out are these beautiful stones."  text
