Here goes it will sound a bit like a third world shopping list though
Light blue short or long sleeve shirt
Dark blue trousers
Black shoes steel to caps anti static (not clod hoppers)
White coat for clinical clean areas (ICU) but not Theatre
Theatre is a bit of a bone for contention; many times I’ve mentioned that different types of staff should dress differently but as of yet only theatre porters wear white
Everyone else wears blue and white shoes/clogs
For really dirty jobs Green boiler suit white hardhat

Do they throw things at you if they do not work,Leonius?
Or is your job a little more that plain medical electronics?

My spelling is not bad. I am typing this on a Medigenic keyboard and I blame that for all my typos.

As you must know, Tony, in some parts of the world, biomeds are often to be seen wearing scrub suits as their normal “uniform” (yes, even in the workshop). Could this, then, be the answer we are looking for? smile


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.

Those that know me will be aware of my anti tie stance. Apart from a personal dislike of the affore mentioned garment I dont think it makes pepole look any smarter or authoritive, its all in the mind.
Some people wear suits and ties for everything and they dont look any more smart than the bod who wears clean and tidy casual clothes, in fact some might think that people who wear uniformaty type clothing may lack personal image thats why they follow others (just an opinion right or wrong?).
As for the dress code here we have a mix of tie with suit, tie with shirt, no tie I think all our staff have equal smartness and all are capable of displaying the brain power to dress themselves without the need for militarian uniformaty.

The hard hat is for working in maintenance corridors or on the roof.
P.s maintenance corridors are used for nurse call, hospital radio and data services between wards.
Roof activities include aerial erecting testing and maintenance Inc satellite and inter hospital laser link.
Some of the older parts of the hospital have been here since the thirties and access corridors are more like tunnels.

We have been informed that we should wear shirt, tie and smart trousers but no 'chinos'. We are issued with safety shoes both for theatre (white) and other location work. Our Works Dept wear polo shirts or shirts and sweatshirts with the Trust Logo on the chest.

I'm definitely with the smart dress/professionalism brigade. Guess I'm a natural tie-wearer (Latin geekus grosso)

However, when I used to work in/on/for our CCU I wore scrubs, purely because the unit was so warm, and scrubs really are soooo comfortable to work in!
Perhaps we should look at getting some scrubs with PCBs printed on 'em - that'd look professional, eh???
