It happens every year, heat wave after heat wave hits nearly every region in the country at some point. And with another month (at least!) left of summer, no doubt more are on the way.
One weapon in the welder’s arsenal against heat fatigue is Miller’s Arc Armor™ Heat Stress Protection product, the CoolBelt™.
“Improved productivity, work quality and overall well-being of the employees are all benefits our customers are realizing through the utilization of these products by their welders.” -Bill Gardner, product manager, Miller Electric Mfg. Co.
The CoolBelt™ system is a robust solution to heat stress. The lightweight, belt mounting system can lower temperatures under the hood up to 17 degrees! The CoolBelt offers multiple air speeds and directional air controls to keep air moving over the users face and head.
Especially when working in the field, it may be impossible to avoid the heat, so if you do work in extreme heat environments, consider an investment in your health with these great products from Miller.
Also, be sure to check out the Centers for Disease Control’s tips for workplace safety in the heat, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Guide to Protecting Workers from the Effects of Heat and the OSHA Fact Sheet on Working Outdoors in Warm Climates.
