Covid-19 means that traditional sizing methods can no longer be used safely because it is known that Covid 19 can survive for days on fabric. This means that each sizing set item could get infected by an asymptomatic person and that anyone who tries on the size set item may get infected. In short sizing sets can be a potential “Vector of Infection”. All organisations have a duty of care to their staff such that once it becomes known that new risks could exist suitable and proportionate mitigation should be put in place.
What is the solution?
Due to the unprecedented situation which now exists it is crucial that more appropriate methods of sizing and overall uniform and PPE management be considered by organisations of all sizes. These organisations will benefit from a safer sizing methodology for all employees without using a traditional sizing set of garments which could become a potential vector of infection for viruses.
This solution will also reduce costs, offer full traceability on all uniform and PPE allocations ensuring brand standards and your duty of care requirements are being achieved. All of this is achieved through a scan of the body being taken for your employee from the comfort of a private location using a mobile phone or tablet.

Nobody wants to use the second most accurate tool when it comes to sizing. Sizing must always be as accurate as possible, not only for safety reasons as well as atheistic and fit reasons. The PPE regulations require that PPE must fit appropriately, and this is also a duty of care issue. SIZER is the world’s most accurate AI sizing technology, but don’t take our word for that, Deloitte New York tested all AI sizing tools and found that SIZER was the most accurate in the world.
HunterPAC®, our award-winning web-based managed service solution for uniform and PPE, has been developed to work coordinated with SIZER® – meaning your entire workforce complete a simple 1 min body scan, their measurements will be uploaded to HunterPAC® and your employee will be assigned the correct products.
Sizer was selected by Hunter after a rigorous analysis of sizing technologies globally and is now linked to Hunter’s multi-award-winning dynamic uniform man- agreement platform, HunterPAC®. Simon Hunter Esq, M.B.E. said,
“Integrating anything other than the world’s most accurate sizing tool was simply not an option for Hunter. Our customers require sizing accuracy as a baseline standard as part of their contracting requirements. Inaccurate sizing kills customer satisfaction and drives up the cost to service contract as well as creating additional negative carbon impact. SIZER for Hunter was a “no brainer”.
