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! 

Arc Flash protection should be taken very seriously.  Arc flash happens when electrical conductors are placed close to each other with significant fault currents flowing through those conductors.  Arc flash hazard levels may be high even from low voltage equipment because of high fault currents.  No matter the reason that arc flash occurs and occurs mostly by human error, protection from this dangerous threat is so very important.  It is important to have a preventive program for electrical material and equipment and make sure qualified personnel are equipped with the proper tools and PPE.
