The importance of workwear to improve ergonomics

When it comes to workwear we should not forget a fundamental part: its adaptation to the specific job needs. Work clothes should not be just a uniform with an original design, but they also should help the employee to perform their tasks in the most comfortable and functional way possible.

Before digging deeper into the importance of work clothes at the workplace, we will make a brief reminder of what ergonomics means. This term refers to a discipline that tries to adapt the tools, tasks and the workplace to the needs of the employees.

Its ultimate goal is to reduce occupational risks and work-related diseases, and to maximize the welfare of the workers.

What do we understand by an ergonomic workwear?

Once we have clarified what ergonomics actually means, we are going to apply it to work clothes. For a uniform to be considered ergonomic it must be adapted to the employee´s movements and it must provide comfort and to be safe, which translates into a work cloth that regulates the temperature and provide safety to the employees while performing their daily tasks.

An ergonomic uniform benefits the employees and the company in three key points:

  1. Protection against the intrinsic risks arising from the job function being performed.
  2. It favors productivity since the employees feel more comfortable performing their daily tasks resulting in a higher level of efficiency.
  3. They guarantee hygiene and cleanliness.
