This is the sixth and final post in a series on the power of choice in your arc-rated flame resistant (FR) clothing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) programs. This post focuses on cost reduction and why it’s one of the top reasons cited by safety managers for moving to a managed choice program.
There are many cost saving opportunities when companies decide to switch from a no-choice program (employers decide to dictate clothing for their employees) to a choice program (employees are empowered to choose preferred garments). Here are three that could positively impact your company’s budget:
One of the most common cost saving opportunities is through product cost. Tyndale manufactures our own line of high quality, price competitive garments – all made exclusively in the USA. Plus, Tyndale’s strong relationships with key distributors allow us to negotiate pricing. This ensures our customers get a wide variety of innovative products at the best prices.
The second cost saving opportunity is one that companies may not immediately consider. Switching to a managed choice program dramatically reduces management’s time spent on handling the program and fielding complaints.
Tyndale puts the responsibility of a smooth running program on our dedicated account management teams, meaning company management can focus on other professional priorities rather than administering the program internally. Plus, we offer services that allow us to work directly with end-users. This not only saves valuable company time but can lead to significant monetary benefits.
By implementing a choice program, wearers are more likely to take pride in their garments. As a result, employees are more likely to wear protective clothing because they’ve chosen them based on personal comfort and style preferences. This increases compliance and minimizes the possibility of costly citations.
Additionally, employees are more likely to take better care of their garments because they have a sense of ownership over clothing that they’ve chosen. This often results in increased service life of the garment. By extending the useful life of a garment, companies may experience cost savings from employees not having to purchase replacement garments as frequently.
