Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Just would like people's opinion on a couple of points pls.

 

1. Are wife beaters (vests) acceptable as part of a uniform ?

 

2. Should ground staff be wearing hi vis at all times or just when on roads ?

IMHO:

 

1. No. To some customers they might seen too casual (beach wear), and may not reflect the required image.

2. Yes. If doing a comprehensive (proper??) risk assessment, then ALARP would dictate so.

I don't feel that vests portray a good image, but thats just my opinion.

 

I have hi vis for me and my subbies, sign writen for that extra bit of advertising, and a professional look.

 

It helps when working too imo, as its easier to identify groundies when in a drop zone etc.

 

I got some hi vis polo shirts done and they are very cool to work in, they are a non absorbent type. from Printed Hi Vis Polo Shirt

Vests are a no go man, unless you want to look like a gypsy. I wear navy polo shirts embroidered and printed, hi vis vests if required.

Yeah, we've got hi vis polo's but they're dogpoo in the comfort dept and the boys wear vests underneath then take the polo's off 1st opportunity. Will have to look see if yours are better.

 

Have ordered some bright printed vests, will see how that goes
