Does your business require your employees to perform their jobs under rough working conditions? If you are in the construction business and you have people handling your building projects whether it’s extremely hot or really cold, then you should definitely ensure that they dressed for safety and comfort at all times. That includes not only working clothes but also warm toques for their heads!
Working outside during the Canadian winter can expose your employees to various injuries and illnesses like frostbite and hypothermia. Yes, our famously cold winter poses additional threats to the usual hazards of the construction industry. We believe Canadian construction workers fully understand the importance of being dressed properly for winter. But that doesn’t mean they can always get the highest quality toques to keep them warm and safe!
A warm toque is important to a construction worker when working during the colder months because it adds warmth and comfort that is much needed. About 30% to 50% of body heat is lost through the head and a toque helps prevent that. It is also recommended that anyone in construction wear a toque under his hard hat. As an employer, it is your responsibility to make sure that every worker you have is properly and safely dressed from head to toe. Provide your employees with high-quality Orange River (OR) toques from KIS Workwear. Only then will you be confident that your employees will be able to withstand the cold weather when they need to work outdoors.
