Advantage of Providing Uniforms 1. To represent or identification of departments 2. Maintain professional atmosphere and uniformity of staff 3. Maintain standards 4. Security 5. Save wear & tear of personal clothes 6. Give a feel of profession 7. Sense of unity/belongingness Uniforms may be of standard sizes or made-to-measure . Made-to-measure uniforms look smart and are essential for senior staff. Standard sizes lower the total requirement of uniforms but may be ill-fitting and do not look as smart. The number of sets of uniforms provided is dependent on - the nature of the tasks being performed and - whether the organization has an on or off-premises laundry. Factors which influence the uniform designing Uniforms are a large investment and the cost does not end with purchase. Budget is a factor that influences all other factors to a great degree. - When designing a uniform, both the functional as well as the aesthetic aspect must be considered. - Depending on the task to be performed, the uniform must be comfortable as well as practical. - The durability of the fabric must be considered as well as its laundrability for ease of maintenance. - The uniform must harmonize with the décor by blending or contrasting and is often required to synergize with the existing theme. - It must also be designed to suit the average individual. - Maintenance and replacement also have to be considered. When staff are issued uniforms, a record is maintained in order to ensure that the uniform is returned when they leave the organization.

Clean for Dirty Basis one to one Soiled uniform ---------------- Fresh Uniform (Deposit) (Issue) b. Uniform Slip Method Deposit Uniform -------------- Next Day----------- Fresh Uniform (Soiled) (Show Slip) (Issued) c. Hanging outside lockers (usually only for senior executives) Employee ---------- Soiled Uniform Employee hangs soiled uniform outside the locker Attendant ---------- Clean Uniform Collects the soiled uniform and replaces with clean one UNIFORM ROOM LAYOUT When planning the layout of the Uniform Room, it must be borne in mind that some uniforms will be kept on hangers while others will be folded. Consequently the storage space must include hanging space as well as shelves. The uniforms must be segregated according to the department. To make the task of issuing uniforms easier, it is usual to arrange them according to size or alphabetically according to name.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
