Avoid heat stress, wear personal cooling products!
As soon as the body’s temperature rises and it can no longer control its natural cooling mechanisms, blood flow to the skin increases, we sweat and then heat exhaustion kicks in. If there is no help available for the body, such as personal cooling products, this can ultimately have serious consequences. Some symptoms of heat stress are:
- rash, itching or blisters
- muscle cramping
- headache and loss of concentration
- dizziness and nausea
- heat exhaustion due to dehydration
- insufficient blood flow to the brain, sometimes resulting in fainting
If internal body temperature rises above 41°C, it may result in heat stroke, which is the most serious effect that heat stress can cause. By staying hydrated, regulating your exposure to heat and wearing proper personal cooling products, you can significantly reduce your risk of heat stress.
Personal cooling products. Who should wear them?
One of the ways to prevent heat stress is by wearing cool clothing such as the Powercool SX cooling vest. People who work or exercise in an environment with high humidity or in high temperatures will benefit the most from these products. In these situations, their bodies are no longer in a condition to sufficiently cool themselves. Research indicates that in roughly 12% of all businesses, people regularly encounter such circumstances. Therefore, wearing the right personal cooling products is an absolute must in order to prevent becoming overheated, because temperatures above 26˚C put additional stress on the body and wearing personal cooling products is recommended. So for this reason, personal cooling products are not designed for specific business sectors, but instead for specific activities in nearly all of them. Whether someone is doing roadwork under the sizzling sun or pouring metal in a production hall, both will be unable to sufficiently cool themselves and wearing personal cooling products is the best possible and most effective solution.
