Cold Weather Accessories - Low Temperature Stress Protection
Dress properly for the cold and use safe work practices. The type of fabric worn also makes a difference. Cotton loses its insulation value when it becomes wet. Wool, silk and most synthetics, on the other hand, retain their insulation even when wet. OSHA recommends wearing a hat or hood to help keep your whole body warmer. Safety Smart Gear has cold weather accessories from dependable names such as OccuNomix, Carhartt, Portwest and other popular safety brands.
