Choosing The Best Workwear For Summertime

Workwear should be assessed at the start of every season to make sure it is suitable for the job and comfortable for the wearer.

Summer officially starts on 21st June, making it the perfect time to do a quarterly workwear assessment.

What does the HSE say about sunny weather?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) offers recommendations for working in the sun and in hot environments. So, any summer workwear rules should incorporate this advice.

HSE recommendations include educating employees on heat stress, and adapting PPE as necessary.

To help you get ready for the summer, the phs Besafe team have put together their own list of summer workwear tips.

5 Tips for working in hot weather

  1. Wear lightweight clothing that can be layered and taken-off as required.
  2. Choose breathable materials to help employees maintain a comfortable temperature.
  3. Opt for clothing that’s not restrictive, look for movement panels and elastic.
  4. Ensure employees have access to cold drinking water and plenty of shade.
  5. Consider providing sun cream products in rest areas to protect against skin damage.
