Stay Safe When It’s Dark Outside

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 4.42.12 PM

Just because the sun is starting to sink down slightly below the horizon and its rays are creating a beautiful painting across the sky doesn’t mean you’re done with your work day. Your tough hours on the clock are far from over, but you’re okay with that. As visibility decreases, you need to make sure you’re kept safe if you’re working later in the evenings. Even those early morning hours have limited visibility, especially with fog and lack of sunlight. High-visibility clothing, like reflective vests and hi-vis overalls, will help you stay seen in low lighting. You can never be too careful in dangerous situations, so let yourself stand out in dimmer working conditions. Continue Reading…

Tingley Rubber Company: 100 years of Satisfaction

tingley

The Tingley Rubber Company offers a wide variety of waterproof footwear and raingear, as well as high-visibility workwear. It’s easy for us to trust this brand, especially since it’s been around for over 100 years. With a lot of hard work and dedication, the Tingley brand was started by a man named Charles O. Tingley. It began with him selling bicycle tire plugs in 1896 (he literally rode his bicycle from city to city), and it progressed into the vast company you know today. Tingley’s travels from New York to Massachusetts to Washington, D.C. and back to New Jersey were well worth it, as he then developed his business idea into the successful Tingley Rubber Company. His two sons joined to help the family company grow into what it is today, and the company has been meeting valued customers’ needs ever since. Continue Reading…

Wolverine: Workwear and Work Footwear You Can Count On!

WolverineLogo WPS Blog

Established in Rockford, Michigan in 1883, Wolverine made the original boots that helped build the railroads, the skyscrapers, and the highways, that laid the foundations of the USA we know today. And their patented 1000 mile boot set the standard for long-lasting work gear, all the way back in 1914.

In 1991 came the revolutionary Wolverine DuraShocks that changed the game for the working person, with compression pads in the heel and the forefoot, absorbing shock and returning it to the foot as useable energy. And that is technology they still use today, updated and reworked based on the feet out there on the working sites around the world. Continue Reading…

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.

Hi-vis or HV is just as important as the tools you use. Simply put, it saves lives. So as you might expect, it comes with Continue Reading…
