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…

Introducing Carhartt Force Men’s Underwear to WPS

Carhartt Underwear WPS Blog

Your men’s underwear bunch up, retain moisture like a sponge, and are generally uncomfortable. Why settle for discomfort? Carhartt Base Force boxers were built to give you all day comfort. They fit better, they’re closer to your body than loose-fitting boxers, and they’re more lightweight than other men’s underwear. Sounds pretty appealing, right? Base Force is a line of clothing from Carhartt and features a special design, as it utilizes FastDry technology for the ultimate sweat-wicking. Many men suffer from sweating a lot, but your underwear shouldn’t soak up the perspiration and keep it with you all day. Continue Reading…

Tips to Help Avoid Frostbite

Frostbite WPS Blog

It’s 0-degrees F outside, and there are 15mph winds, so you’re a mere 30 minutes away from frostbite. That makes it -19-degrees F with the windchill factor, and it’s only a matter of minutes before your fingers, toes, ears, and nose start to lose feeling. After that, you have to act fast. If the thermometer reads -60-degrees F, you only have about 10 minutes before your skin is in danger. Frostbite can happen more quickly than you think, and this can lead to hypothermia, too. How can you prevent the weather from affecting you, both temporarily and permanently? Continue Reading…

Is Your Workwear Ready For The Cold?

Winterize your Workwear

So you went out and bought a great pair of work boots this year. They’ve been reliable all year long, getting you through more mud and rain than you’ve ever seen in your life. Once the temperatures drop, your work footwear could use a boost. Just as you need to dig out the winter box and start wearing a hat and gloves, your work shoes need some extra attention, too. They have to face snow, sleet, and even salt in the upcoming months. Sure, they’ll keep you protected like they always have, but taking the time to ensure their exteriors are maintained with proper conditioning and waxing can be the difference between soggy and dry socks. Continue Reading…
