What Kind of Workwear is Right For You? (Part 2)

17 Feb 2022
Workwear in Ireland has come a long way, and it’s one of the reasons why we have such a well-respected construction and landscaping industry today. Ireland does a lot of building, and COVID hurt all of us, but we’re hoping seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

If you’re a part of this industry, and you’re thinking of upgrading your clothing protection in anticipation of more work coming in, check out down below.

Also make sure you’ve checked out our Part 1 for more tips and thoughts on the priority workwear in Ireland depending on your industry.

Workwear for Large Construction Sites

Workwear for Large Construction Sites

There’s so many more moving parts, that people can lose themselves when things get busy. This is when something goes wrong, like someone stepping out in the way of a large machine without looking, or lifting a large piece of lumber without checking to see if anyone is behind them.

And so, of course, hard hats are essential, and will be provided for you on most sites, but if you want something more comfortable, or with eye and face protection, you’ll have to get your own.

Ear protection is, obviously, something you should really consider if you work in a loud zone. 20 or 30 years working on a loud site can really harm your hearing, but be careful, as depending on how busy your immediate work area is, it might be more dangerous to remove a valuable sense, like hearing. These days, many personal hard hats come with the option of protections, like replaceable ear muffs and front vizors.

In clearing away an overgrown or rubbish filled area, the first thing we’d recommend is strong and sturdy gloves. You’re going to be doing a lot with your hands, and you don’t want to be caught out without adequate hand protection. Luckily, just a few simple pieces of workwear make all the difference.

Whether you’re picking up heavy stone and brick, or thorny branches or even glass, there’s a lot of risk to the skin of your hands, or even infection. Work gloves will help you work faster without worry, and make sure you’re protected.

The same can be said for your clothes. If you’re wearing just a thin t-shirt to work to do some clearing, you’ll eventually notice the wear and tear. Though not as damaging to yourself as not having hand protection, all it takes is a stray thorny branch to catch your clothes and maybe leave you a bit of a scratch. Investing in good, strong shirts, both for warmer and colder weathers, is a good way to make sure you’re not ruining clothes and buying often.
