There are numerous industries that require workers to operate in sub-zero conditions – sometimes for hours on end. Such work is impossible unless workers are adequately protected against the icy conditions. If your staff are required to work in industrial freezers, they will need PPE of excellent quality that will help them maintain their body temperature, stay warm and comfortable and remain productive. CHARNAUD® explains what these workers need and how our specially designed range – ZERO-TECH® – can help.

What Workers Need In Cold Conditions

PPE designed for cold conditions have one primary function: to prevent exposure to the icy elements. If workers are exposed to sub-zero temperatures for extended periods, they need protective clothing that will maintain their body temperature for the time it takes them to complete their tasks. The main elements of cold condition PPE are insulated clothing, thermal underwear, headwear, gloves and boots.
