Stay Safe, Be Seen, Wear Hi-Vis

High Visibility Workwear

It all began when Bob Switzer, an American would-be doctor got injured at work. Instead of reading and resting up, he spent his recovery developing a new kind of luminescent paint, that he hoped would help other workers avoid his fate. He also decided to try it out on his wife’s wedding dress, so he was as brave as he was creative.

 Hi-vis clothing is everywhere now and it’s impossible to ignore – the very secret to its success.

And though it started as safety wear for work, studies across the world have all found that to be seen is, ultimately, to be safe. So for cyclists, pedestrians, and all other road workers, high visibility is an important to your workwear.

But it’s always been most vital right where it started out, for workers in all kinds of industries, where being seen is part of your occupation.

Crocs @ Work Now at

Crocs @ Work @ WorkingPersonOriginally developed as a spa shoe, it’s no surprise that Crocs have built their reputation on out-and-out comfort. Founded in 2002, they took their first design (‘The Beach’) to a Florida boat show and sold out all 200 shoes in a matter of hours. But it wasn’t until 2006 that they really caught the public’s imagination.

Since then the Crocs brand has gone from strength to strength, and divided public opinion equally, every comfortable step of the way. So while the fashionista’s turned their noses up, the public kept on buying. Partly because they were so easy to wear, but also being seen regularly on the feet of famous faces like Michelle Obama did the brand no harm either.

But far from ever courting the affections of the rich and famous, at the core of Crocs’ more recent marketing has Continue Reading…

Staying Dry is the Key with CoolMax

Coolmax Performance Fabric

In cold weather, proper safety workwear is very important. For achieving this purpose, many high-tech fabrics have been introduced.
