Reducing landfill with sustainable workwear
Workwear made from recycled materials doesn’t have to compromise on appearance or functionality. Clad Safety have been working closely with a number of our suppliers to develop a range of workwear, footwear and PPE that is sustainable while also smart, functional and most importantly, safe.
All of these items conform to the highest safety standards, look identical to traditional workwear but are manufactured using sustainable methods and materials.

Garment and PPE Disposal
The disposal of workwear garments and PPE can be incorporated into your Service Agreement, where desired, to ensure uniforms are being recycled ethically and securely. Clad Safety will arrange for the collection, destruction and recycling of used/discarded items at agreed timescales in line with company requirements. A destruction certificate will be issued upon process completion for use.
Each year the UK throws away millions of hard hats. These are traditionally thrown into general recycling waste with a high probability of ending up in landfill. The National Hard Hat Recycling Scheme aims to change by diverting safety helmets into a dedicated waste processing facility, thereby ensuring all hard hat waste is fully recycled.
