Presentation: Certified Safety from Harmful Substances

Worker safety is a high priority. But, safety from harmful substances is often overlooked. 4-8,000 chemicals, in countless formulations, enter the apparel and footwear supply chains. Regulations vary by location and change regularly. New technologies and scientific data make it nearly impossible for manufacturers or employers keep up.

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent certification system that tests every component of the workwear for chemical substances that are harmful to health. Quality assurance checks are built into the annual certification and standards are updated regularly to stay ahead of industry and legal changes. Products that have been completely and successfully tested are awarded the STANDARD 100 label for clear and verifiable communication.
