Secure Enviro-Garment Removal Scheme

All too often we hear of our clients dissatisfaction at having to buy products from various supply bases to meet demand. PHS Besafe warehouses are always fully stocked with garments to ensure our customers are supplied with essential safety workwear apparel.

Our removal scheme is designed to assist our customers with the destruction and disposal of contaminated, branded workwear garments that have reached the end of their life cycle.

2

Identification & Traceability Before any garment is sent out, it’s barcoded with the wearer’s name, site location and employer, ensuring we can track and report on every garment.

Collection & Delivery

PHS Besafe Cycle

7

Managed Locker Service

Garments are collected from site and taken to be cleaned and repaired (if required) and are returned 7 days later, on the same specified day each week.

An optional service that delivers laundered garments back to employees’ individual lockers, removing the need for staffed cloakrooms or stores on site, and helping to reduce casual theft.

4

Unique Wash Process 6

Total Management Reporting With barcode tracking included as standard, we’ve ensured all the information you could need about your garments is available on regular management reports. These can be based on laundry usage by wearer or site, repair history, garment life cycle – in fact, just about any criteria you require.

5

Inspection & Repairs On every laundry cycle, garments are checked and any required repairs are carried out (including zip replacement or patching). Garments are then individually packed for return delivery. Users can also request length alterations using our “blue tag” system.

Introduction

Bright Gear

We only use environmentally friendly, organic compounds which guarantee garments are returned odour and irritant free. The process is gentle so colours don’t leach or fade, yet still tough on oil and grease, keeping garments looking at their best even after numerous wash and wear cycles.

EN11612 Flame Retardant

EN343 Protection Against Rain

A European Standard for high-visibility clothing. It deals with High-Visibility Specifications. There are three levels of protection:

The standard is divided in different categories, where the code letters say which heat and flame requirements the garment fulfil. Each category is subdivided into different levels depending on how good the protection is.

EN 343 is the harmonised European standard that applies to garments worn in adverse weather conditions. It specifies the characteristics of protective clothing against the influence of foul weather, wind and cool above - 5oc. The standard provides for two performance parameters:

EN11612 FLAME F RETARDANT

Class 1 Class 1 defines the lowest visibility level e.g. Highvisibility trousers with two 5 cm reflective bands around each leg. These become Class 3 when worn with a Class 3 jacket.

A1, A2 - Requirements for limited flame spread; A1: Surface ignition A2: edge ignition B (1-3) - Protection against convective heat and open flames C (1-4) - Protection against radiant heat D (1-3) - Protection against molten aluminium splash E (1-3) - Protection against molten iron splash F (1-3) - Protection against contact heat

Class 2 The class 2 defines an intermediary visibility level. Example: vests. Two 5 cm bands of reflective around body or on one 5 cm band around body and braces to both shoulders. Class 3 The class 3 defines the highest level of visibility. Example jacket with long sleeves, jacket and trouser suit. Two 5 cm bands of reflective tape around the body,

EN11611 WELDING PROTECTION

EN61482 Arc Protection The standard tells if the garment protects against electric arc and is divided into classes.

Railway Group Standard sets out the minimum specification for high visibility warning clothing in the Rail Industry. GO/RT 3279 mandates the minimum requirements for high visibility clothing to ensure people are conspicuous when on the line side/trackside or on or near the line.

This type of protective clothing is intended to protect the wearer against spatter (small splashes of molten metal), short contact time with flame, radiant heat from the arc, and minimises the possibility of electrical shock by short-term, accidental contact with live electrical conductors at voltages up to approximately 100 V d.c in normal conditions of welding. The standard is split in two classes:

Bright & Flame Gear

Laundering process for Flame & Bright Gear Number one in the UK for high visibility wear care... The working environment can leave its mark on specialist workwear, by way of oily, dirty and greasy deposits. It’s crucial that an effective laundry process be used to ensure contaminants that could affect the performance of the garments, be it visibility or its flame retardant properties, are removed. PHS Besafe launders high visibility Flame and Bright Gear at 40 degrees. All garments sent to the laundry are scanned in to the laundry as received. We segregate hi vis foul weather outer garments from our hi vis workwear, and launder using our patented wash processes in small drum laundry machines. Garments are dried at very low temperatures in convected tunnel dryers. To ensure that they’re not damaged by heat, but are thoroughly dried, the garments are issued twice through the driers. Once laundered, the garments are then individually hand checked for any degradation, damage of zips and tears, and where necessary, our staff repair the damaged areas using the same materials that the garments were manufactured, ensuring an invisible repair. Upon leaving our laundries, all garments are “scanned out”, polybagged and returned to your site weekly.

Arc Gear

Premier Arc unique laundering process A unique laundering service for specialist workwear... Conventional laundering, dry cleaning and home washing can be ineffective on heavy soiling, dull bright colours and reflective tapes can damage specialist fabric finishes, reducing levels of protection. Premier Arc is a dedicated laundry service, exclusively designed to remove the heaviest of soiling whilst maintaining the effectiveness of specialist workwear. This ensures the life of the clothing is extended, dramatically reducing your workwear replacement cycle. The Premier Arc laundry process encompasses a 12 point procedure, each part designed to ensure garments are cleaned, repaired and replaced with the maximum of care and the minimum of disruption. In terms of the wash method, all products are presented for the PHS Besafe unique wash process utilising the Aqueous wash cycle at 40 degrees. This wash process is designed to remove as much contaminant as possible from the garments, whilst protecting the fabric and its components.

Once the garment is laundered, a visual inspection is carried out to ensure contaminant removal has taken place. If required, the garments will be laundered again to ensure optimum removal of soiling has occurred. All high visibility products are then dried through the PHS Besafe tunnel process. The wash temperature is kept low to ensure reflective and sealing tapes and the fabrics. The wash temperature is kept low to ensure reflective and sealing tapes and fabrics are not damaged in the drying process. An integrity inspection is then undertaken to check zips, press studs and sealing tapes are all still intact. Although the wash process is an integral part of the service, PHS Besafe recognises the need for a fully comprehensive service.

The importance of Secure Uniform Destruction

Many branded uniforms could be used fraudulently in the wrong hands. PHS Besafe’s Enviro Garment Removal Service can help protect your brand and site security by ensuring that all official branded garments are destroyed in a highly secure, controlled environment. The service takes away the increasing corporate worry of having to dispose of contaminated, non-compliant workwear to landfill, giving you peace of mind and allowing you more time to focus on other work commitments.

The process

The Benefits

Once a garment has reached the end of its life cycle, simply affix a red tag to it and drop it into a soiled garment bag where we’ll collect it on the usual service schedule. Once this garment enters our laundry, it is scanned to state removal from the database, laundered and sent for shredding and disposal.

Our Enviro Garment Removal Service eradicates the need to employ additional collectors and transportation from another source to remove your old workwear. We can help reduce your carbon footprint by efficiently managing the amount of vehicles that come to your sites on a regular basis. The service will also take away the requirement of an additional vendor to carry out garment removal and as such, save you money through purchasing and invoicing costs.
