When wearing paramedic uniforms, leave out the silly socks!

An article posted by the BBC reports ambulance crews have faced a discipline on wearing silly socks as part of their ambulance clothing to work. Health chiefs have reported novelty socks with slogans and images are “inappropriate” and “unprofessional” whilst on duty. This new ambulance uniform policy includes shirts to be tucked in at all times, footwear to be fully polished and uniforms to be clean and laundered, the list goes on however many feel the silly socks ban is a step too far.

Many companies have strict uniform regulations, and such as the above they can be quite comical. However it does bring to light some items of clothing can be unprofessional depending on what profession you are in.

We will continue to keep you updated with recent uniform news articles, watch this space!

Not quite the ‘Full Monty’

Here at Keltic, we’ve just launched our new paramedic uniform range on our website. We may have a few glasses of wine to celebrate, but we’ll be sure not to be wearing one of our uniforms when we buy it!

A leading supermarket recently refused to serve a paramedic who attempted to buy wine in his uniform, stating that it was company policy. What happened next was quite unexpected – he took off his ambulance uniform and stripped down to his underwear and asked “now will you serve me?”!

This isn’t the first time that paramedic uniforms have hit the news. There have been regular calls by ambulance unions to provide their members with paramedic stab vests – citing the shocking and increasing number of assaults on their staff.

In other paramedic uniform-related news, we were sad to hear that Random Acts of Reality, a Blog based in London, England, written by an E.M.T working for the London Ambulance Service is no more, with the blogger moving on to pastures outside the ambulance sector – best of luck from all at Keltic!
