In a move designed to increase productivity and enhance worker performance, Kimberly-Clark Professional (Roswell, GA) has unified its core categories of personal protective equipment (PPE) – apparel, gloves and eyewear – under a refreshed and revitalized KleenGuard brand.
The revitalization effort seeks to shift the PPE focus beyond comfort and protection toward insight-driven, human-centric solutions that maximize productivity by enabling, rather than inhibiting worker performance. To support this, Kimberly-Clark Professional has created a program called “The KleenGuard Challenge,” which features endurance athletes undertaking rigorous fitness challenges in KleenGuard products. The program offers tools to help identify common signs of productivity loss and recommends solutions.
Many of the KleenGuard brand offerings can be recycled through RightCycle by Kimberly-Clark Professional, the first large-scale recycling program for non-hazardous lab, cleanroom and industrial waste. Since its launch in 2011, the program has diverted more than 660 tons of waste from landfills by turning used nitrile gloves, apparel and eyewear into new consumer goods.
