A Guide for mobility Workers
As you prepare to start your journey with us, it’s important to understand the dress code and safety gear requirements. This guide will help you dress appropriately for your shifts while ensuring your safety and that of those you care for.
Dress Code Tips:
- Clothing: Opt for clean, comfortable clothes suitable for the nature of your activities. Black trousers and closed-toe shoes are generally recommended for their professionalism and practicality.
- Hair: If you have long hair, please keep it tied back to maintain hygiene and avoid any interference during care.
- Jewellery: Be mindful when wearing jewellery or watches, especially during physical contact with clients. It’s best to keep accessories to a minimum to prevent accidents or injuries
Safety First with the Right Gear:
- PPE Requirements: Your safety and the safety of those you assist are paramount. Always carry necessary safety gear such as N95 masks and gloves. For a detailed list of required PPE, please refer to the ‘Work Procedures’ section in the app.

Stand Out with ID:
- Photo ID Badges: Many of our provider partners, especially in residential settings, require workers to wear an ID tag. This helps in building a sense of community and trust with residents.
- Ordering Your Badge: You can order a high-quality Photo ID badge from ePrint online. Use the code “mobility” at checkout.
- Photo Tips for Your Badge: Ensure your photo is at least 300 dpi resolution, taken against a plain background, and without any filters or accessories (unless for cultural, religious, or medical reasons).
- Provider Specific Policies: Always refer to and follow the specific policies of each provider’s facility. They may have additional or different requirements regarding dress code and PPE. See how to access provider facility info
- Hygiene: Maintaining good personal hygiene is crucial. Ensure you are well-groomed and clean for every shift.
- Getting Your Badge Just Right: When ordering your ID badge, make sure your photo follows these guidelines for the best result. This small step is significant in ensuring you’re readily identifiable and adds to the professional environment of our provider partners’ facilities.
By following these guidelines, you’ll be well-prepared and appropriately dressed for your role as a worker with mobility. Remember, presenting yourself professionally not only reflects well on you but also on mobility and the standards we uphold together.
