Cold Stress

Harsh environments can be as tough on workers as it is on the equipment they use to do their jobs. Snow, subzero temperatures, and strong windchills are clear examples of cold stress, but cold stress can occur when the weather is simply cold enough to effect the way you perform your job. Put simply, cold stress causes dangerous circumstances that can result in health emergencies and accidents for your team. To combat these winter-related hazards, cold stress products work to protect workers from cold-related dangers and keep them warm.

Cold stress products come in many forms. Head protection like the Ergodyne® winter liner helps workers retain heat, and the Ergodyne® balaclava with Hot Rox combats the damaging effects of cold weather. This advanced balaclava also helps control moisture to keep your face dry and warm.

Cold stress is dangerous; let these products help keep your team safe, warm, and protected. Shop cold stress products below!
