PPE Laundering Services for Utility Companies (Electric, Gas, Phone, Internet, Cable, etc.)

Utility companies play a critical role in our daily lives, providing services such as electricity, gas, phone, internet, and cable. However, utility company employees are often exposed to dangerous job site conditions. Electric utility workers may be exposed to shocks, while gas utility workers may be around gas leaks or explosions. Workers in phone, internet, and cable companies must navigate hazards such as falls, chemical spills, and other risks.

To protect workers from these hazards, utility companies must provide appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and ensure that it is all properly maintained.

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 their needs. You will receive the type of laundering you need to handle specific contaminants your crew regularly 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.

The Importance of PPE for Utility Companies

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.

PPE for utility companies is essential in keeping employees safe. Utility companies must invest in proper personal protective equipment like hard hats, safety vests, safety glasses, masks, gloves, aprons, sleeves, and more to protect workers from hazards such as chemical spills, electrical shocks, and falls.

However, contaminated PPE poses a risk to workers and may not provide the intended level of protection. Proper laundering of PPE is necessary to remove contaminants and maintain effectiveness. Fortunately, Bates Enterprises has the industrial laundry equipment and technology necessary to clean essential PPE for utility companies of all kinds.

Why Should Utility Companies Outsource PPE Laundering Services?
