What PPE Is Needed To Work Safely In The Cold?

Protective clothing is needed and should be selected to suit the temperature, weather conditions (e.g., wind speed, rain), level and duration of activity, and job design.
These factors are important to consider so that you can regulate the amount of heat and perspiration you generate while working. If the work pace is too fast or if the type and amount of clothing are not properly selected, excessive sweating may occur. The clothing next to body will become wet and the insulation value of the clothing will decrease dramatically. This increases the risk for cold injuries.


While selecting the proper clothing, you must remember:


  • • Clothing should be worn in multiple layers.

  • • The inner layer should provide insulation and be able to "wick" moisture away
    from the skin to help keep it dry.

  • • The additional layers of clothing should provide adequate insulation for the
    weather conditions under which the work is being done.


Summit offers many different clothing solutions that are comfortable, warm and ANSI approved.
