Rental Uniforms for Michigan’s Cannabis Industry
As Michigan’s cannabis industry continues to grow and evolve, so does the need for proper work uniforms that keep both the product and the employee safe & compliant.
Whether your team is working in a grow facility or a dispensary, having the proper uniforms for each line of work is vital for keeping employees safe and for keeping in compliance with state regulations. Not only is having the proper uniforms necessary but properly caring for employee uniforms by preventing contamination & meeting cleanliness standards is just as important.
Below, we’ll guide you through which uniforms are right for each line of work in the cannabis industry, and how partnering with a uniform rental company can make proper uniform handling & laundering a breeze.
Uniforms for Growing & Harvesting
Safety is always a top priority in any industry, and the cannabis industry is no exception. Employees who work within the growing & harvesting segment of the cannabis industry require uniforms that will keep not only themselves and those around them safe but also the product itself.
The solution? Rental scrubs and UV shirts.
UV shirts are perfect for keeping employees safe when working under the sun or in areas where they are exposed to UV rays for long periods of time. In addition, scrubs are the perfect protective garments for growing, harvesting, and handling cannabis plants.
Scrubs are made with lightweight, breathable fabric that allows workers to move freely & comfortably in greenhouses & heated facilities. Scrubs also provide a cloth barrier to keep harmful growing chemicals & plant particles from coming into contact directly with the skin. Because scrubs act as a barrier and are easy to put on and take off, these uniforms are perfect for keeping harmful particles from spreading & contaminating products. Employees can discard used uniforms upon entering or exiting a room in the growing facility in order to keep contaminants from spreading.
A uniform rental program also helps prevent the spread of contaminants by providing proper soiled uniform handling and laundering. With over a century in the uniform laundering business, Gallagher knows how to remove contaminants and keep uniforms clean. Contact us today to become our partner!
Dispensary Employee Uniforms
In addition to uniforms for those working in growing & harvesting, there are also proper uniforms for employees of cannabis dispensaries.
Employees outfitted in well-designed, branded uniforms can make a strong first impression on customers, conveying a sense of professionalism and reliability. With Michigan being one of the first states to legalize growing & selling cannabis not even 5 years ago, there is still some stigma amongst consumers surrounding the product. Outfitting your customer-facing employees in professional and cohesive uniforms can help to change perceptions and build trust. These uniforms should include your company logo and colors to help build brand recognition and reinforce brand loyalty.
