Safety Clothing for New Infrastructure Projects
November 15, 2021, the $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill was signed into law. This will pave the way for a massive overhaul of roads, bridges, railways, airports, power grid, water, cyber security and electric vehicles in America. The need for certified safety clothing is apparent and with the current supply lines being what they are, it may be more difficult for some companies. Safety Smart Gear has excellent access to high visibility apparel and flame resistant clothing and will help you purchase the wholesale certified garments your company needs for new projects.
