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! 

Respiratory Protection

Respirator Equipment

Respiratory Protection begins with a respiratory protection program which protects workers against all types of dangerous vapors, substances and particles.

The industrial environment dictates the type of respirator and respirator cartridges needed to protect worker's lungs and/or face.  An effective respirator has to fit comfortably with a secure seal and not allow the tiniest particles to enter the breathing area inside the respirators mask. Respirators, surgical masks, n-95 respirators, supplied-air respirators, PAPR, CBRN should keep breathing resistance to a minimum.

Respirators and their cartridges should be NIOSH-approved and should be specific to the breathing danger.  A change-out schedule of the respiratory cartridges must be implemented by a qualified professional unless the canister or respiratory cartridge has an end-of-life indicator.  The change-out schedule should take into consideration the work practices and conditions.  Disposable particulate respirators should also protect against airborne particles and ensure a secure seal and comfortable fit.
