Technical Information

There are a range of safety standards in the clothing industry that address everything from fabric to tape to flame resistant properties required. We know that this can be difficult to understand and to ensure you are up to all of the applicable standards. To that end, we have collected an easy reference list here of the most common standards associated with clothing. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to talk to someone in more detail about what we can do to ensure your employees are properly protected.

We can provide a wide range of reflective tape options on our garments to meet current standards. Tape can be customized in terms of the size, the colour, and the placement. While WearWell always recommends that a standard CSA tape placement be used whenever possible to ensure that the highest safety standards are met, we can provide customized placement of hi vis tape when required. 

It’s important to make sure that all of your clothing is properly cared for and this doesn’t change when we are talking about work clothing! Here you will find a list of the most commonly used care icons used on clothing labels and a brief explanation of what they mean. In addition, there are some guidelines on how to properly care for flame resistant clothing. Taking care of your clothes means they will function properly and keep you safe and protected longer.

Determining size can be tricky so we want to show you how best to measure and determine what size clothing you should be ordering. In addition to using the information and videos we provide on how to measure, remember to always consider how you like to wear your clothes as well. If you like to have them a little lose, go up a size. We are always happy to answer any questions before ordering to ensure a great fit!
