A Brief History of FR

FR History WPS Blog

When you think of fire-resistant clothing, you probably immediately imagine fire fighters, welding shops, and maybe even electricians. With sparks flying and flames building, people with heat-intensive occupations need to have the right kind of gear. They have special flame-resistant gloves and jackets to prevent injuries. But how was the tough material in flame-resistant clothing developed in the first place? Fortunately for us, scientists in the past took care of the “trial and error” processes that most likely burnt off some hair. Continue Reading…

Tips to Help Avoid Frostbite

Frostbite WPS Blog

It’s 0-degrees F outside, and there are 15mph winds, so you’re a mere 30 minutes away from frostbite. That makes it -19-degrees F with the windchill factor, and it’s only a matter of minutes before your fingers, toes, ears, and nose start to lose feeling. After that, you have to act fast. If the thermometer reads -60-degrees F, you only have about 10 minutes before your skin is in danger. Frostbite can happen more quickly than you think, and this can lead to hypothermia, too. How can you prevent the weather from affecting you, both temporarily and permanently? Continue Reading…

Carhartt Hospital Gown WPS Blog

A trip to the hospital can be dreadful.

You already DON’T want to be there, and these paper thin gowns make you want to sprint toward the exit sign. You’d almost rather sit in an ice bath than wear one of those patient gowns with a gaping backside that gives you the chills for weeks. Continue Reading…

Wouldn’t it be nice if, when the weather gets cold, we could all just head inside and take a nice little vacation until spring? Of course it would. But you live in the real world. So when you need to work outdoors during the winter months, make sure you’re properly equipped to handle the weather. Having the best winter workwear on the job during the cold months is good for your comfort, your protection, and your productivity.

The leading manufacturers of winter work clothes, like Carhartt, Wrangler, Wigwam, Filson, Stormy Kromer and more, make their pants, shirts, coats, jackets, boots, gloves, hats and other products out of a number of different fabrics, for a number of different uses. Different fabrics have different advantages, and oftentimes, there are different insulations that you can utilize as well, to maximize your comfort and protection during the winter months when you are working outdoors.

Workwear Fabrics: What you Need to Know

If your work is tough, you need work clothes that are just as tough. You need clothes made for working people, workwear that can withstand the rugged job you put them through. You need workwear that is durable, comfortable, and protective, from the best brands like Carhartt, Wrangler, Bulwark, Filson, Dickies, Red Kap, Under Armour, Wolverine, and more.

When it comes to deciding on the right work clothes for your particular job, it often comes down to the type of fabric you choose. Cotton duck is the most popular fabric for workwear. It is weighty and strong, coming from the Dutch word doek, which was a fabric once used to make clothing for sailors. It’s also the same type of fabric used to make sails, tents, shoes, sand bags, and other rugged products, since it is so resistant to tearing and can handle rough use. Continue Reading…

Wear the Right Socks!

With the weather warming up, it’s time to get back outside and get  back to outside work. And on the days when the sun is beating down, you’ll feel it on your neck, and you’ll feel it on your feet. For those of us who work outdoors, we know that the sweatiest, smelliest part of the whole day comes right down to your socks. Which is why wearing the right work socks can make all the difference.

Whether they are made of cotton, acrylic, polyester, or anything else, the three biggest things we’re looking for are comfort, support, and durability. And these things can be accomplished in a number of different ways. For instance, when it’s warm out, the biggest thing that can help achieve comfort is a pair of socks that are designed to keep you cool. And since warm weather plus work tends to equal sweat, it’s important to have socks that keep you dry too. Moisture-wicking socks like Coolmax socks from brands like Wigwam and Thorlos are some of the most popular for accomplishing these goals. Continue Reading…

Safety First, Comfort Too

OSHA

If you’ve ever worked in the oil or natural gas industries, we don’t have to tell you how dangerous simply showing up to work can be. These jobs involve some of the most hazardous industrial conditions in any workplace, anywhere. Since the job sites are typically outdoors, are typically in remote areas of the country, and often operate year round regardless of weather conditions, there are all sorts of things that can and do go wrong on the job: Environmental hazards caused by extreme weather, machine accidents, materials hazards, chemicals hazards and more.
