CLOTHING FOR CONSTRUCTION 

The construction industry is one where today's fashions just don't make it.  Fancy duds are likely to get caught or snagged and cause you to fall or to get hurt.  Your clothing should not only be  appropriate, but rugged enough to stand up to the use it'll get. 

Always wear a heavy duty shirt, preferably long-sleeved with the  cuffs buttoned at the wrist.  Don't wear it loose or baggy.  Keep it tucked in to avoid snagging. 

Your shirt will protect you from sunburn, so keep it on even when the weather is hot.  It will also protect you from scrapes and from skin-irritating material.  Don't wear anything around your  neck that can dangle and get caught in machinery. 

Wear straight-legged pants of proper length without pocket flaps  or cuffs.  They should not be baggy or so long that your heels get caught in them. 

You probably can't keep your pants up without a belt.  If your  belt is too long, cut off the extra length or run  it through  additional belt loops. 

One of the most common causes of amputated fingers is jewelry such as rings, wrist watches and bracelets.  

When you dress for construction work, remember that you're not out to model the latest fashions.
