PPE Laundering Services for Automotive Industry

Automotive industry workers are frequently exposed to hazards such as chemicals, heat, sparks, noise, dust, and industrial liquids like coolant and oil. The personal protective equipment worn by automotive workers protects them from these risks in their work environment—but replacing this PPE over and over can be expensive.

Since 1995, the dedicated team at Bates Enterprises has cleaned and recycled used personal protective equipment for a variety of industries, including the automotive industry. By laundering with Bates Enterprises, you could enjoy savings of up to 85% on PPE costs. We go the extra mile and provide itemized tracking reports each month to show you your savings!

Personal Protective Equipment for Automotive Workers

When you’re working in an auto shop or factory, there’s more to worry about than just dirt and grime. A leak, an oil spill, or stray sparks and metal fragments could cause serious injury. You may encounter malfunctioning equipment or hazardous chemicals. To ensure employee safety in the automotive industry, you need reliable personal protective equipment. Examples of PPE for automotive workers include:

  • Safety glasses or goggles to protect eyes from flying debris and sparks
  • Gloves to protect the hands from cuts, burns, or exposure to harmful substances
  • Ear plugs or muffs to prevent hearing loss from loud noise exposure (engines, machinery, tools, etc.)
  • Respirators or masks to prevent breathing in dust, fumes, vapors, or gases
  • Protective clothing such as coveralls, aprons, sleeves, or jackets to shield the body from heat, fire, spills, or splashes

Automotive PPE can be made of various materials such as leather, cotton, rubber, nitrile, latex, or Kevlar—and Bates Enterprises can handle it all! In addition to this PPE, we also recycle and launder absorbents like mats, rugs, shop towels, and other industrial textiles used to protect floors and handle spills in your automotive shop.
