Recycling and Laundering PPE for the Manufacturing Industry

Manufacturing encompasses a wide range of duties and processes, but all manufacturing workers should wear protective gear on the job. In fact, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) made it mandatory for metal workers to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) like gloves, safety hoods, earplugs, hard hats, safety glasses and goggles, respirators, aprons, and sometimes even full-body suits. These critical items provide hearing protection, prevent eye injuries, and guard your employees from other common hazards.

Since 1995, Bates Enterprises has been cleaning and recycling used personal protective equipment for a variety of industries, including the manufacturing industry. By laundering PPE with Bates Enterprises, some clients see savings of up to 85% on PPE costs. We’ll even generate itemized tracking reports every month to show you your savings!

PPE for Occupational Safety in Manufacturing Industries

Since manufacturing machinery presents a variety of potentially dangerous situations, workplace safety is crucial in a manufacturing environment. A coolant leak, spilled oil, or stray sparks and metal could cause serious injury. Workers routinely come into contact with dirt, grime, sawdust, oil, chemicals, liquid waste, and other hazardous materials. Outfitting workers with correct PPE helps them avoid common injuries in manufacturing facilities.

The specific PPE you use will vary depending on your job duties. For example, in addition to the PPE mentioned above, certain roles may require the use of fall protection harnesses, high-visibility vests, or flame-resistant protective clothing.

At Bates Enterprises, we understand no two clients are the same. We work closely with each company to design and implement a personalized PPE laundering program for them. You will receive the type of laundering you need to handle specific contaminants your crew encounters. Our proprietary systems are custom-designed to clean, sanitize, and prolong the life of your personal protective equipment, no matter what you put it through.

We clean the following manufacturing PPE items and materials:

  • Kevlar
  • Twaron
  • Dyneema
  • PVC
  • Urethane / HPPE
  • Nitrile
  • Impact Gloves
  • Rugs
  • Robot Covers
  • Protective & FR Clothing
  • Absorbents
  • Sealer Rags & Gloves
  • Leather
  • Cotton
  • Harnesses
  • Sleeves
  • Welding Jackets
  • Chaps
  • Hi-Vis Clothing
  • Microfiber Rags / Shop Towels
  • Safety Vests
  • Paint Gloves
  • Mop Heads

Throughout the manufacturing process, many different liquids end up on machinery, various surfaces, and workers’ clothing. That’s why in addition to PPE, we recycle and launder the absorbents used to clean off these liquids. This includes oil-absorbent pads, mats, shop towels, and rags.

Plus, in addition to saving your money with thorough PPE laundering services, our PPE recycling services keep dirty PPE out of landfills and lessen your company’s impact on the environment. We dispose of all waste through a federally-regulated disposal service and maintain 100% compliance with all federal environmental regulations. We also provide fabric-specific patching and repair services that meet industry safety guidelines.

If you have any questions about a garment or material you don’t see listed here, please contact us for details.
