Prolonged sun exposure can have significant health impacts on workers, with one of the most pressing concerns being heat stress. Heat stress occurs when the body absorbs more heat than it can dissipate, leading to a variety of symptoms such as dizziness, fatigue, and in severe cases, heat stroke. To mitigate the risks of heat stress, it's essential to prioritize proper clothing for workers. 

Adequate clothing can offer shade and support the body's natural cooling mechanisms, helping to prevent heat-related complications. This can include lightweight, breathable fabrics that allow for air circulation and wick away moisture, as well as cooling PPE such as hard hats with shade. 

To address heat stress concerns, prioritize water intake, establish effective work/rest cycles, and ensure shade availability, especially in the summer. By prioritizing these strategies, employers can help protect their workers from the risks of heat stress and ensure a safe and comfortable working environment.

Here’s a range of PPE products for shade and cooling:
