Keep Cool This Summer

Summer months are here, and that means you’re working in the heat.   Using the proper gear while working outside ensures that you won’t lose any productivity due to heat stress, or even greater injury. Obviously the basics are staying hydrated and taking proper breaks to let your body regulate itself. Having cool fluids like Sqwincher on the job site, along with some sort of shade shelter like Ergodyne’s SHAX series make your breaks as productive as a “break” can be.

Just soak in water, wring, whip, and place on your skin near large arteries, like your forehead, armpits, elbows, or wrists. They use water’s natural evaporative properties to feel cooler than the ambient air you’re working in.   Check out the video below to see the differences between Ergodyne’s line of cooling bandanas.
