There’s a very good chance that you woke up today, and didn’t give the risks of your job a second thought. In fact, most of us never really think of the harm that could come upon when we are at work. For 28-year-old Colin Philips, a hunter in Alabama, NY, it was just another day at work until trouble hit the unsuspecting man. Philips went hunting in the Alabama swamps alone (which was his first mistake) since his partner was out of town. While walking deep into the swamp, he attempted to track down a deer, but lost it. “I should have been with somebody, or waited for somebody to come help me track the deer. Obviously, that’s hindsight now,” said Philips. Continue Reading…

Enjoy the Outdoors With the Right Winter Apparel

For many, winter is a dreaded time of year.  The roads are hazardous, the weather is unpleasant, and let’s not forget about the frigid temperatures that often keep up cooped up indoors.  However, with the right winter outerwear, you can enjoy your favorite cold weather sports like snowmobiling and skiing or comfortably complete your daily errands without feeling like you’re turning into an ice cube.

One of the best ways to make the most out of your winter gear is to layer up.  Layering allows you to add and remove articles of clothing based on your own personal comfort.  When layering, you want to keep three main layers in mind: wicking, insulating and weather protection.  The wicking layer is what you wear closest to your skin.  This layer is what will wick moisture away from your skin so you feel dry and warm.  Continue Reading…

Why Choose Thinsulate?

The holidays are approaching at a rapid pace, and while the warmth of the season might seem like enough to get through the winter, it isn’t. After Santa returns to the North Pole, all we are left with are cold and snow. But while there could be that urge to purchase fancy – yet – impractical winter wear for you or your loved ones, it might make more sense to go with workwear that is more functional.

Thinsulate products, like Thinsulate insulated boots are designed to keep you warm, but not overheat. The technology behind this is as follows: Thinsulate fiber is thinner than polyester and the gaps between the fibers allow moisture to escape, which actually help you to retain the heat produced by your own body. It provides two times the insulation of a “duck down” and is not nearly as heavy.

The winter season can present many challenges at the workplace as well as safety risks.  With cold temperatures and the presence of ice and snow, workers need to be thoughtful in selecting the right protective gear to wear on the job.  One of the most important piece of safety equipment is the work boot.  Without the right pair of winter work boots, you could be at risk for slips, trips and falls.

With all of the work boot options that are out there today, it can be difficult to select the one that will best fit your needs.  It is essential for you to keep in mind the conditions that you may be working under.  Will you be working outdoors?  If so, how cold can it get?  How much snow and rain can you expect?  And, what kind of work will you be doing?  By answering these questions you can narrow down your options and choose the boots that have the features you need.  It is also important to familiarize yourself with some of the safety features of work boots, that way you know exactly what to look for.

Preparing for Winter: Personal Protective Clothing Keeps You Safe

Choose the right cold weather gear

For those of us that work outdoors in the winter, like construction workers, utility workers, road crews, commercial fishermen, police officers, firefighters and military members just to name a few, specialized weather-appropriate clothing and accessories are a necessity.

In addition to health risks like hypothermia and frostbite that are caused by exposure to cold weather, there are other issues that cold weather presents in the outdoor workplace. Extreme cold can also decrease efficiency and increase the likelihood of work-related accidents and injuries. This is because your brain and body are both slowed by the cold.
