Heat Stress

Outdoor summer construction projects require added attention to heat stress safety. The effects of heat stress can include dizziness, fainting, cramps, heat rash and even heat stroke. Cooling vests, cooling bandanas, hard hat shades, and other body cooling products can help provide the protection that the outdoor worker needs.

Outdoor workers aren’t the only ones who need to combat heat stress. Industrial workers in foundries, mills, must combat occupational heat stress. And members of emergency response teams required to wear bulky hazmat suits are also at risk from heat-related illness.

Hydration

Heat stress safety relies heavily upon proper worker hydration. Water, Gatorade, Sqwincher, and other electrolyte beverages are essential to help workers replenish fluids and get through a long work day. It is important that outdoor workers have easy access to water coolers, and electrolyte beverage dispensers.

Cooling Apparel

It’s hot, darn hot. Outdoor summer construction projects require attention to heat stress safety. The effects of heat stress can include dizziness, fainting, cramps, heat rash and even heat stroke. No fun. Phase change and evaporative cooling vests, cooling bandanas, hard hat shades, sweatbands, and other body cooling apparel can help provide the protection that the outdoor worker needs.

And the outdoor guy has it easy. Those slaving away in foundries and mills without the benefit of air conditioning (think of hell, only warmer), or those who have to wear swampy hazmat suits need cooling apparel too. Heat stress isn’t any fun for anybody. Put on a nice cool vest to make it go away.

Cooling Apparel

In dangerously hot work environments—from summer outdoor construction jobs in direct sunlight to indoor, non-air-conditioned jobs in foundries, tanneries, and steel mills—occupational heat stress is one serious danger.

One of the best ways to protect workers from heat stress (besides taking the day off and spending it at the pool) is the use of cooling apparel, like a cooling vest, cooling headband, cooling neckband or bandana, or something similar.

Phase Change Cooling

Phase change may sound like something only Einstein could understand, but really, we see phase change around us all the time. The simplest example is water. Water can exist in three phases: solid (we call it “ice”), liquid (liquid water) and gas (water vapor or steam). When ice melts, it changes phase.

Phase change cooling vests utilize phase change inserts to keep the wearer cool for hours. The inserts solidify after just 35 to 45 minutes in ice water or a refrigerator. And they maintain a temperature of 58°F, which is a way more comfortable temperature than ice packs provide. Try holding an ice cube against your forehead for 10 minutes. Cold? Sure. Painful? Absolutely.

Phase Change Cooling Explained

General Instructions:

  • Refrigerate or soak phase change packs in ice for 45 minutes to one hour. Freezing may cause the packs to become rigid and may not be necessary to provide ample cooling.
  • Place in the pockets of a phase change vest, hard hat liner, etc.
  • Enjoy hours of cooling comfort.

Evaporative Cooling

Evaporative Cooling works the same way that sweat does (without smelly side effects).
As water on your skin evaporates, it cools you off.

Evaporative cooling apparel is extremely absorbent. Just soak it in cold water, and in a minute or two an embedded cooling polymer or cooling crystals absorb water, and become what is scientifically known as “gel stuff”. This gel holds water for hours. As the water in the gel evaporates, it keeps the wearer cool.

Evaporative cooling apparel includes cooling vests, hard hat inserts, neck shades, cooling headbands and cooling bandanas. Evaporative cooling apparel is effective, easy to use and relatively inexpensive.

General Instructions:

  • Soak vest, bandana, etc. in water for 5 to 20 minutes.
  • Wring out excess water and wipe down with a dry cloth.
  • Stay cool for up to four hours.

Absorptive Products

Sweat is your friend when combating heat stress. But when it gets in your eyes or makes tools slippery, it becomes a problem. Absorptive products include headbands, dew rags, and sweatbands made of terrycloth, cotton, or sponge material.

General Instructions:

  • Take headband, dew rag, etc. out of its package and wear it. Pretty simple.
