New Industrial Winter PPE from PIP®

PIP® Cold Weather PPEGuess what is back? Like or not, the cold weather has arrived. No matter what winter brings, be it blizzard conditions, frigid temperatures, ice storms, heavy winds and rains – this change in working conditions can be challenging on your team. Are you be prepared to ensure your staff can tackle the season ahead? Now is the best time to start thinking about winter PPE so you can stay in front of it.

Proper Winter Apparel

Preparation for changing environmental conditions can include a variety of factors such as cold stress, layering for the elements and safe work practices. Whether you’re a seasoned foreman or a road warrior in the trenches, we provide products for cold conditions that support a seamless transition into challenging winter working conditions.

What’s Cold Stress?

You can vist OSHA for more details on cold stress but basically cold stress results from the body’s inability to warm itself. It typically occurs when cold temperatures, high wind, dampness or exposure to cold water causes skin temperature to drop quickly. Anyone working in a cold environment may be at risk of cold stress. Some workers may be required to work outdoors in cold environments and for extended periods, for example, snow cleanup crews, sanitation workers, police officers and emergency response and recovery personnel, like firefighters, and emergency medical technicians. Types of cold stress involves:

  • Frostbite: Freezing of the skin and tissues typically affecting the extremities that can cause permanent damage.
  • Hypothermia:  Hypothermia happens when the core body temperature drops below 95°F. It can also occur at temperatures above 40°F when one is wet from rain, or damp from sweat.
  • Trench foot:  A non-freezing injury of the feet caused by prolonged exposure to wet and cold conditions.

Properly dressing for inclement weather and being aware of how the body is reacting to the conditions are two key aspects of preventing cold stress – especially when cold temperatures cannot be avoided. Layering, specifically a three-layer system, provides better insulation.

Both the employer and the employee share the responsibility of preparing to work in the cold weather conditions. Since cold stress symptoms can appear suddenly or over a long stretch of time, self-monitoring and monitoring other coworkers for cold stress symptoms is extremely critical. Cold stress is common but it’s also avoidable if you engage in the proper preparation.
