Just because the weather is turning colder doesn’t mean that you need to put your work gear on the backburner until spring- quite the opposite is true! Harsh winter weather conditions require special outerwear that is going to protect your skin and protect your eyes, keep you warm and help you remain productive on the job. Whether you are looking for heat packs or ice spikes, hats or sunglasses, make sure that when winter rears its ugly head that you are prepared to face it.
Working out in the cold is hard enough, and its even harder when your fingers and toes are absolutely freezing! Grabber Warmers and Hot Rods has come up with a solution to help you get through those cold days. The heat packs are convenient, toxic free, long lasting (around 10 hours!) and a great way to stay comfortable in the cold. In addition, they are also cheap! Grabber Warmers are manufactured with all natural ingredients and are disposable after one use. With anywhere from 5 to 24 or more hours of warmth provided, you can select hand, toe, foot and body warmers for when the temperature drops and you need to warm up quickly. Just slip them in your pocket, gloves, shoes or jacket and they warm you right up and keep warming you up for hours while you work.
If you are someone who is deathly afraid of slipping and falling on ice like I am, you will be happy to know that STABILicers dig into ice and snow to seriously reduce your risk of falling and injuring yourself this winter. You will also increase productivity while you work. STABILicers give you sure traction when you slip them over your regular shoes with small cleats that are designed to help you stand your ground! There are also packages of replacement cleats you can buy for just a few dollars when the cleats on your STABILicers wear down. You won’t have to worry anymore about slipping and breaking your arm or leg, hitting your head or having some other injury that may prevent you from working!
Alright, just because the snow is falling does not mean that your eyes are safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. In fact, your eyes need protection even moreso during the snowy winter months, since those rays bounce off of snow and ice and are reflected so much. Don’t neglect your eyes- you need to make sure that you have a pair of shades that are designed to protect your eyes and your sight throughout the winter season. Some of the top names in safety eyewear include Uvex, MSA, North, AOSafety, Crews, Harley Davidson, Wiley X and others. You don’t have to spend a fortune on eyewear either- put that extra money away for Christmas and go with one of these affordable brands that will make sure your eyes stay healthy and in great shape for years to come!
