Heat Stress Relief
Flame Resistant Heat Relieve
Wearing personal protective equipment and protective clothing can increase the risk of heat stress. Wearing FR clothing in warm weather or hot work environments is a special challenge. Fortunately, heat stress can be easily reduced with proper work practices and by using products designed to help keep you cool while also protecting you from flash fire and electric arc hazards.
To avoid heat stress, heat stroke and dehydration, the CDC recommends drinking plenty of liquids, gradually building up to heavy work loads, and scheduling heavy tasks for cooler times of the day. You'll also find FR products and accessories available from OccuNomix, TrueNorth / DragonWear, NSA, Carhartt and others that are designed for comfort and cooling when worn with your other flame resistant gear.
