Without employee workwear for their pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in the country faced a plant shutdown.
They called Gallagher Uniform for help. Gallagher stepped in and provided clean, compliant workwear overnight to the pharmaceutical manufacturing employees keeping the plant fully operational.
A leading pharmaceutical manufacturer was running out of employee uniforms in their largest operation. Without uniforms, the plant would not meet safety and compliance requirements and would be required to shut down.
When a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility suddenly shuts down because of a manufacturing or safety issue, it could lead to drug shortages that impact every level of the healthcare system, compromising the standard of care for thousands of patients.
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Workwear
The role of employee uniforms in pharmaceutical manufacturing is two-fold. It protects pharma and biotech employees from hazardous materials, hazardous substances, and fire and explosion hazards. Employee uniforms also protect the drug manufacturing process against cross-contamination. The FDA and OSHA have specific regulations regarding personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, including pharmaceutical manufacturing and biotech employee workwear and uniforms.
Gallagher Uniform Keeps Lifesaving Pharmaceutical Plant Operational And Prevents Plant Shutdown
Because the current uniform provider could not handle the job, the pharma manufacturer contacted Gallagher for an emergency washing of uniforms. Gallagher’s team didn’t hesitate and quickly devised a plan to solve the problem for the customer. Two Gallagher crews willingly worked extra evening shifts to wash, tunnel, and sort the employee work uniforms in under eight hours.
The clean, compliant pharmaceutical manufacturing uniforms were delivered to the client the following morning. Upon delivery, Gallagher picked up another load of employee uniforms to launder, ensuring the customer had more than enough uniforms ready. The client seamlessly continued operations without worrying about shutting down the manufacturing process.
Gallagher received this message from the client:
