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.text

Roscoe has many different types of work uniform rental and floor mat programs that can be customized to each individual customer and can be customized further accordingly to unique characteristics of different departments and functions they perform.
As an example of this flexibility, Roscoe recently installed uniforms and floor mats to a new customer that produces food products. This facility does require that its work uniform rental supplier follow strict HACCP procedures (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points), which Roscoe does, as they are a Safe Quality Food (SQF) certified company.text

Since June is National Safety Month, the Chicago uniform company wanted to draw attention to an initiative the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) are currently closing in on. Back in 2010, TRSA told the EPA that the association would lead an industrywide phase-out of Nonylphenol Ethoxylates (NPEs) from all liquid detergent formulations by December 31, 2013, and all powders a year later. Since then, the EPA has placed NP and NPEs on the toxic list, has provided a list of alternatives and is working with TRSA on an expedited phase-out in industrial laundry detergents. text
