Aggregate workwear essentials for all seasons
Aggregate industries play a central role in construction and infrastructure, producing and providing a wide range of construction parts through handling materials from cement to stone and from concrete to asphalt. Adequate protective workwear is a must to ensure the safety of workers in the industry.
As one of the UK’s leading providers of durable and high-quality workwear, Wearwell manufactures and supplys a range of specialist workwear for those working in aggregate industries. Here, we’ve outlined the essential workwear garments for anyone working in the industry to ensure safety and sufficient protection all year round.
- High Visibility Workwear
High visibility workwear is designed to be worn in low lighting, helping to ensure you’re seen and to minimise risk. In the winter months where days are shorter and the beginning and end of the working days will be dark, high visibility options are an essential, especially in environments where heavy plant and heavy materials are a constant presence. High vis workwear should be worn all year round not just in winter of course, as it makes it easier for heavy plant operators to see others around the site.
- Lightweight Materials
In the aggregate industries, workers should have protective trousers and a jacket or a boiler suit as a bare minimum. To ensure both comfort and breathability when wearing in a range of weather conditions, woven cotton is a popular option. This will also dry quickly if exposed to wet weather while still offering great protection, and can be flame resistant for anyone who will be exposed to heat, such as welders. Lightweight cotton material also won’t compromise the range of movement of the worker. Plus, it’s durable, long-lasting, and looks professional.
- Sweatshirts & T-Shirts
As well as providing protective outerwear for your staff, y t-shirts and sweatshirts, such as our Tecwear Anti-Static T-Shirt and our Tecwear Anti-Static Sweatshirt are also vital. Not only are these heat and flame resistant, but also ensure your employees have protective clothing for all seasons, allowing them to layer up in the winter while still being safe without a jacket in hotter months.
