Here at SafetyCare, we help all kinds of businesses to keep their workers safe and in control through the highest calibre of protective, durable & functional work trousers. This time we’re looking at work trousers and how they help employees to carry out their roles safely and effectively.

Why are protective trousers important?

A worker’s legs don’t just help them to get from A to B, as they also play a core role in lifting, kneeling and climbing. Outdoor workers and factory labourers in particular are constantly moving around in rough, dirty and potentially hazardous environments, which means they require durable and functional trousers that protect their legs at all times.

What are work trousers made from?

A cotton-polyester mix is one of the most popular materials for protective trousers. Thanks to high levels of durability, this material prevents rips and general wear and tear. Meanwhile, cotton-polyester is comfortable, breathable and allows easy movement, which is why it’s often present in protective trousers.

Other types of materials may be used as well, such as a mix of polyester and carbon fibre for trousers fitted with flame-retardant and antistatic properties.
