The Best Workwear & Safety Footwear Brands

The Best Workwear & Safety Footwear Brands

Work clothes are not necessarily what we want to be spending our money on, but it’s important that certain professions are protected by the right clothing and footwear in the workplace.

High quality, trustworthy workwear is essential, especially when it comes to health and safety when working. At Hirst Footwear, we stock a range of known workwear brands, offering quality clothing and comfy and safe footwear.

What makes good quality workwear?

The first thing to take into consideration when it comes to producing quality workwear is safety. When working in the trades industry, you need to be protected from all sorts of dangers, such as fire, dust, dangerous gases, light and heat.

If you are working late at night, it is highly important that you are visible, so hi-vis jackets are a key component. Working in the trades industry is also a hard graft and the clothes you wear may need to be able to withstand a lot. Clothes that are not durable and wear out fast are often a waste of money for tradespeople.

There is also a high need for freedom of movement and being comfortable when wearing your work clothes. So, the components of a good quality workwear are that they must be comfortable, durable and above all else, help you to stay safe when you are working.
