Cintas Canada debuts white paper on FR apparel programmes
Cintas Canada released a new white paper titled ‘Should I Rent or Purchase Flame Resistant Clothing? Strategies for building a safer and more cost effective protective apparel programme.’
According to a Cintas press release, the white paper will help business leaders, risk managers and safety professionals improve their PPE programme and their cost effectiveness.
The white paper reviews factors that contribute to total cost of ownership of a flame resistant (FR) clothing programme in order to help define safer and cost-effective personal protective equipment (PPE) programmes.
“Challenged with pressures to improve employee safety while keeping costs low, businesses face question of whether to use a purchase or managed FR clothing programme,” said Dave Rehm, from Cintas Canada.
He added, “It can be a tough choice to make, but by identifying best practices and specific needs, businesses will be better equipped to choose the right option for them and their employees.”
The white paper informs on factors that increase the total cost of ownership of a FR clothing programme; how to calculate the per wear cost of FR garments and options for laundering and maintaining FR garments.
“One may find a rental programme to be ideal, others may find a purchase programme works best, while still others may need a solution that includes a mix of managed and purchased FR garments,” Rehm observed.
