Flame-Resistant Brand Works to Make Schools Safer

High School Welding Class Receives Flame-Resistant Uniforms

OXNARD, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2014) - Workrite Uniform Company, Inc., a flame-resistant (FR) workwear brand and affiliate of Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company ("Dickies"), is furthering its commitment to school safety. Putting plans into action, Workrite Uniform recently partnered with Serrano High School in Phelan, California, to outfit its 70-student welding class with FR coveralls.

"We are proud to work with education systems to help institutions, like Serrano High School, understand the proper precautions in keeping their students safe," said Workrite Uniform president Keith Suddaby. With school lab explosions, such as the one that took place in Denver on Sept. 15, Workrite Uniform has also recently expanded its line of FR lab coats and was the first manufacturer to offer a women-specific style.

Workrite Uniform asserts that the benefits of outfitting students and research labs with protective gear dramatically outweighs the costs should an accident occur, as these products reduce the severity of potential injuries, increase the likelihood of survival and lessen financial risk for the institution.
