FLOTUS Plants Last Garden in Boss Gloves

On Tuesday, for the eighth year in a row, Michelle Obama planted the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn. The annual tradition started in 2009, which helped launch a conversation about healthy eating and ultimately the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative.

In 2011, Mrs. Obama began another trend– wearing Boss garden gloves! After President Obama gifted the First Lady a pair of green Boss® Dirt Diggers™, they quickly became her garden glove of choice. The First Lady also went on to write about the gloves in her book American Grown describing the green color as a cheery reminder of spring.

Boss® Lends a Hand in OSHA Training

In October, Stinger Certified Safety of Oklahoma City held an OSHA 10-hour Construction Safety Training for construction workers, foremen, project managers, job site superintendents, and anyone else in the construction industry. This one-day, 10-hour course teaches workers general awareness on recognizing and preventing hazards on a construction site and is required by some states and/or employers.

During the class, Boss products were used to help demonstrate proper safety and the importance of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the construction industry.
Boss would like to thank Rene Soto, owner at Stinger Certified Safety, for featuring our 1JM770 and also for introducing Boss Gloves to all 300 students.

Building Productive Partnerships

Here at Boss, we like to do things a little different. We might be the oldest glove company in the United States, but we’ve kept our company small and our roots deep. We take pride in long-term partnerships with our customers, and sometimes we just want to tell them “thanks.”

The great people that make up our sales team don’t spend all their time behind a desk making calls— we believe in better relationships than that. Our team is in the field learning about industry needs. We are crossing state lines to shake your hand and ask what we can do better. We are learning from you, growing from you, and sustaining a strong company because of you.

Boss® Boots Used in Hurricane Katrina Rescues

Last month marked 10 years since the devastating Hurricane Katrina ripped through our nation, causing death and destruction in 7 states. The storm was directly responsible for 1,170 fatalities in Louisiana alone, and that doesn’t include the nearly 500 evacuees who died of uncertain causes.
While most people were evacuating the area, there were some brave souls who stayed behind to protect their property and rescue those in need. Stephen J. Ford is one of those people. (more…)
