Safety and Reliability For Public Sector Uniforms
A range of test methods to ensure public sector uniforms are of the quality and have the longevity, for the purpose they were made for.
Why is testing uniforms important
A uniform means a set of standard clothing worn by members of an organisation while participating in that organisation’s activity. In general, people wearing uniforms are doctors, nurses, cleaners, porters, armed forces, security, police, emergency services, schools and a variety of work applications.
Employees in these sectors face a wide range of tasks in their everyday role, therefore their uniforms need to be incredibly diverse and perform in these environments.
Each industry and job role require different specifications, materials and features, which need to adapt to the wearer around everyday activities. If the uniform is not fit for purpose the employees efficiency in their role is dramatically reduced.
