Pryme - What to wear when working outside in the heat - Pryme Australia

As temperatures soar in unpredictable climates, working outside can cause overexposure to the sun, leading to heat stress and dehydration. Workers across Australia and New Zealand are asking themselves what to wear when working outside in the heat.

According to Safework Australia, working in extreme heat can lead to a range of heat-related illnesses, including heat rash, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke. It’s essential to know the signs of heat stress and take measures to prevent it.

Keeping Your Cool With Cooling PPE

One of the most important ways to prevent heat stress is to wear appropriate clothing. Workers should wear lightweight, breathable fabrics, such as cotton, and avoid heavy or tight-fitting clothing that can trap heat. A hat or other head covering can also help to protect against the sun’s harmful rays.

But sometimes, even the most breathable clothing isn’t enough to keep workers cool in extreme heat. That’s where the Ergodyne Chill-its Range of cooling PPE comes in. These innovative products are designed to help workers stay cool and comfortable even in the hottest conditions.

The Solutions

The Chill-its range includes a variety of cooling products. Vests, towels, bands, and hat shades, all of which are designed to keep workers cool and prevent heat stress. All of the Ergodyne range is made from special cooling fabrics that absorb and hold water, providing an instant cooling sensation when worn.

Dehydration is also a major risk for workers in the heat, and it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. Workers should drink plenty of water and avoid sugary or energy drinks that can dehydrate the body. The Sqwincher range of Electrolyte Enhanced beverages is the healthiest, and best choice when it comes to dehydration. Combined with the Ergodyne’s Chill-Its Range and Sqwincher, workers really can beat the heat.

Working outside in the heat is a health hazard, and it’s essential to take measures to prevent heat stress and dehydration. Wearing lightweight, breathable clothing and staying hydrated are crucial, but for those working in extreme heat, the Ergodyne Chill-its range of cooling PPE is an excellent solution to stay cool, comfortable and safe. Don’t let the heat affect your productivity, invest in the right gear and stay safe on the job.
