FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta

Cintas Canada, Ltd. today released a white paper with strategies that can help organizations improve their flame resistant clothing (FRC) program – and their bottom line. The white paper titled, “Should I Rent or Purchase Flame Resistant Clothing? Strategies for building a safer and more cost effective protective apparel program,” reviews common factors that contribute to the total cost of ownership (TCO) of an FRC program.

“Deciding between a managed FRC program or purchasing garments can be a difficult decision, especially since the responsibility is a combined effort by the employer and employee,” said Mike Perun, Regional Manager of Protective Apparel, Cintas Canada, Ltd. “By identifying your specific needs, you will be better equipped to choose the most cost effective option without compromising worker safety.”

Readers of the white paper will learn:

  • Common factors that increase the TCO of your FRC program
  • How to calculate the per wear cost of flame resistant garments
  • Different options for laundering and maintaining flame resistant garments

“There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to managing an FRC program,” added Perun. “By looking at some of the different factors that contribute to the TCO of an FRC program, along with options for laundering and maintaining flame resistant garments, you will have a more accurate assessment of the best option for your business.”
