Working with Fruit & Vegetables under the best Preconditions.


Anyone who works with food must wear the appropriate clothing. Here, protection against substances hazardous to health must be ensured. Working with fruit and vegetables therefore requires safe work clothing and the right accessories. Here we offer our customers the option of detectable buckets, clipboards, etc. For optimal wearing comfort and pleasant working, we have clothing adapted to the industry, such as jackets, trousers, underwear or shoes.

Working in the fruit & vegetable sector
The employees in the fruit and vegetable department have important duties. Every day, they take care of the food that is consumed most frequently. Fruit and vegetables need specialist knowledge about the different varieties, seasonality, regionalism, preparation and much more. To keep the produce fresh, it must be cared for and stored properly. Know-how in hygiene is not only essential for this reason. 

What are the tasks of an employee in the fruit and vegetable department?

  • Storage, care and handling of the goods
  • Service: Prepare Fresh-Cut products
  • Advice on choice of variety, preparation, seasonality and much more

Anyone who works with food such as fruit and vegetables must comply with certain hygiene requirements. Both in the use of work materials and in work clothing.

HACCP clothing
Hygiene is the top priority when handling food. Companies that produce and/or process food are obliged to work according to a strict HACCP concept. HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) stands for a hygiene control system that helps to ensure food safety. If you rely on HACCP clothing according to DIN 10524, you are on the safe side when it comes to complying with the strict hygiene requirements for workwear in companies in the food industry. HACCP clothing is specially manufactured and designed to prevent food contamination. Fortdress offers modern and certified HACCP clothing for various requirements.

EN 420
The European standard DIN EN 420 defines the general requirements for protective gloves of all categories and specifies test methods and labelling. A number of specific standards apply in conjunction with the basic standard DIN EN 420.

In addition, EN 420 specifies that protective gloves must always be labelled with a range of information:

  • The manufacturer or an authorised representative must be identifiable
  • The product itself must be clearly identifiable (name, number or similar)
  • A size designation must be specified
  • If applicable, the expiry date

EN 388
EN 388 explains the test methods used to compare the mechanical performance of all PPE (personal protective equipment) category II and III gloves (protection against medium and irreversible/lethal risks). When choosing between a glove A and a glove B, the user should be able to recognise which of the two gloves is better suited to their intended use. 

When assessing mechanical protective gloves, the focus is placed on 6 properties:

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Cut resistance according to conventional methods
  • Tear strength
  • Puncture resistance
  • Cut resistance according to new procedure
  • Optimal: protection from collisions

EN ISO 21420:2020

The new EN ISO 21420:2020 was adopted in 2020 in line with the requirements for protective gloves. This new version replaces the previous EN 420:2003 and applies to all protective gloves that require CE marking.

EN ISO 21420:2020 defines the general requirements applicable to all protective gloves in terms of design, construction, harmlessness, comfort, effectiveness, labelling and information.

EN ISO 6330
ISO 6330 is used for textile quality assessment and performance evaluation. The evaluation includes, among other things, the testing of the following properties:

  • Smooth appearance
  • Change of size
  • Stain protection
  • Water resistance
  • Water repellency
  • Colour fastness to non-commercial laundering and care labelling

A complete test includes a "washing procedure" combined with a "drying procedure".

A "non-commercial washing process" includes:

a) 13 washes with a front-loading machine with horizontal revolving drum

b) 11 Washing cycles with a top-loading wave-edge washing machine

c) 7 washing cycles with a top-loading pulsator washing machine

 

A "non-commercial drying process" includes:

a) Drying on the line

b) Drying on the line from a dripping wet state

c) Drying while lying down and drying from a dripping wet state while lying down

d) Flat iron press

e) Drum drying

 

EN 16350

The European standard EN 16350 sets additional requirements for protective gloves worn in explosive environments. The EN 16350 standard specifies a test method and performance, labelling and information requirements for electrostatic dissipative protective gloves to minimise the risk of explosion.

Due to the high conductivity of such protective gloves, electronic charging of the wearer can be effectively prevented in potentially explosive atmospheres such as refineries, provided that an appropriate grounding chain consisting of protective gloves, protective clothing as well as safety shoes and floor is ensured.

EN 511
The European standard DIN EN 511 specifies the requirements, test methods and labelling of protective gloves against cold. Gloves that comply with this standard should protect the wearer against covenant cold (penetrating cold) and contact cold (cold in direct contact). The basic requirement for certification of a glove with EN 511 is also an abrasion resistance and tear resistance according to EN 388 of at least level 1.

EN 13688
The international standard DIN EN ISO 13688 specifies the general requirements for protective clothing. These requirements relate to the ergonomics, harmlessness, ageing, size designation and compatibility of protective clothing. In addition, EN 13688 stipulates that clothing manufacturers must include an information brochure with the garment. Similar to EN 420 for protective gloves, EN ISO 13688 is the basic standard for protective clothing that every garment must meet. Garments that meet one of the standards we have listed are always certified according to DIN EN ISO 13688.

EN 342
The European standard EN 342 specifies the requirements and test methods for protective clothing against cold. Clothing certified according to EN 342 protects the wearer against temperatures of -5 °C and below. The EN 14058 standard (protective clothing against cold environments) protects the wearer comparatively only up to a temperature of -5 °C. The EN 342 standard therefore represents an increase in protection against cold compared to EN 14058 and is therefore more suitable for work in extreme temperatures, such as in cold stores.>
