Heat can increase the risk of injury in your workforce

Research from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shown that ‘workers who are exposed to extreme heat or work in hot environments may be at risk of heat stress.’ (CDC, 2020)

Workers that are most at risk (but not limited to) are the following:

  • Construction workers
  • Factory workers
  • Farmers
  • Outdoor workers
  • Etc…

onyxWith the above in mind, and the summer months coming into full-swing, it is crucial your workers are equipped for the weather, are provided with optimum workwear, and tools to complete their work.

Therefore, Safpro are thrilled to introduce to you the following: Onyx Hi-Vis Antiwicking T-shirt.
