Regarding the Carhartt safety clothing it supplies industries like the automotive, farming, transportation and construction industries with, Workwear1's management team says, "Carhartt has taken Personal Protective Clothing to a new level."

New flame resistant coats supplied by Workwear1 are 100 percent cotton. The coats are duck lined with a 11.5 ounce quilt lining. A two inch reflective strip crosses the front and back of the coats, helping outdoor workers to be seen. Added visibility is offered with the coats' "X" stripping. An inside waist adjustable draw cord, combined with a rib-knit storm cuff, enhance the coats' flame resistant ability.
