Hydration and Electrolyte Replacement in the Winter

Hydration is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer.  Realizing that you are dehydrated when it is cold outside is more of a challenge.  We perspire underneath the layers of clothing that keep us warm in the winter.  Perspiration is absorbed by our clothing and we think we sweat only when it is hot outside.  That is so far from the truth!  When in an industrial setting in the winter months we need to be more aware of hydration.  We tend to drink less and dehydration is less obvious.  We are more prone to accidents in the workplace while operating machinery or working at a job site when we are dehydrated.  Be aware of this possibility and remember that the temperature outside is not as important as the temperature inside of your body.  To combat dehydration, look at the All Natural Sword Electrolyte Replacement products here! 

Protective Clothing

Protective Clothing

Keep yourself safe from chemical, biological and environmental hazards by wearing protective clothing on the job.

Evaluate the hazards in the workplace to choose the best type of protective clothing for your workers.  Protective Clothing will create a barrier of protection for workers in occupations where they are exposed to materials such as chemicals, dust, dirt, body fluids, biohazards and mold.  The first step to choose the right protection for your workforce is to evaluate the hazards that workers are exposed to on the job.

Select Safety carries a large selection of disposable clothing from various manufacturers.  There are different types to choose from depending on your work environment and budget.

Tyvek disposable clothing has the barrier protection built right into the material in the manufacturing process.  Other brands coat the clothing with a special barrier protective material.

FR Clothing is made according to standards that have been issued for the manufacturing and testing of this type of special clothing for flash fire and arc flash environments.  It offers the worker time to escape because the clothing does not ignite as it would with non-FR work-wear.
Welding Clothing is specifically made for welders due to the specific hazards in that industry.

Other Types of Protective Clothing includes rainwear and hi-viz clothing that is needed in certain occupations.
