Midas Safety Clothing Division extends its commitment to sustainability by earning the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification. By achieving this, Midas has clearly set the bar higher for adopting sustainability in the workwear manufacturing industry. 

The certification is an assurance to Midas’s customers about the manufacturer’s sheer commitment to quality. Over the years, the company’s extensive experience has built credibility for customers who understand the importance of procuring green materials used in production. 

While Midas Safety has always adhered to the highest standard of quality in delivering products that are safe to wear and free of toxic substances, the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification only further validates the company’s commitment to this cause.

About OEKO TEX: 

The International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile and Leather Ecology (OEKOTEX®) with headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland was founded in 1992. The OEKO-TEX® association consists of 18 independent textile testing and research institutes in Europe and Japan, 

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, every component of this article, i.e., every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances, and the article, therefore, is harmless for human health. The test is conducted by our independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of our extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog.
